  1. Thanks all!! Now I have another question, and it might sound silly, but I've never been to these ports before. Do I use American money in Costa Maya and Cozumel or do I need to buy Pesos?
  2. Can anyone tell me if they assign the ships a terminal the day they arrive or how does that work? I wanted to book transportation from the cruise port to Ft. Lauderdale airport but they need to know which cruise terminal I will be at, and there seems to be quite a few. Any help would be appreciated! 🙂
  3. Thank you all for your thoughts on my question. I'm looking mainly for some post cards for my scrapbooking, and I buy a shot glass and shooter glass whenever we are somewhere new. If I can get those right at the port, then I will just come back to the ship. 🙂
  4. Our ship doesn't leave port until 10pm, but our tour is going to be finished by 5pm. If we get dropped off in town, is there a shuttle to get back to the cruise pier? Also, are there shops for souvenirs such as post cards, shot glasses, t-shirts etc. near the port?
  5. What is the date that you will be in Rome? Because our day in Rome is Friday Sept. 27th, and our time in Rome has not been extended. We still leave port at 7pm from what it says on my calendar.
  6. If you think the Pompeii part will be too much for them, you could contact Italytours.EU to see if there are any spots left on our tour. It is the Classic Amalfi Coast tour. It goes to Amalfi Coast, Positano, and Revello. I'm not sure if it's full or if we have room for more. Just a thought! 😄
  7. Thank you for the suggestions. I will post on the roll call as well. We have 5 people so far. They will check 10 days before the cruise to tell us what our options are if we still don't have enough people. I hope we get to go as it sounds amazing.😁😁
  8. We have the same tour booked and at this time we have 5 people signed up. Did they charge extra because there were only 5 people?
  9. If you call Italy tours.EU they should be able to tell you about times and which one will suit you. If you decide to do the Classic Amalfi Coast, we have a group started for this tour.
  10. Thank you Keith for easing my mind.🙂 I feel a lot better about taking this excursion now. I know the ship will wait for us, but I didn't want to be "that couple" to hold the ship up. This is the first time our excursion has been that close to sail time.
  11. This will be our first trip to Europe. Can you please tell me how long the walk is from the ship to where we would catch our bus for our tour? Our tour is scheduled to get back at 6:15pm and our ship leaves at 7:00pm. I am not a fast walker and I'm wondering how much time it takes to get back to the ship. (It is a ship sponsored excursion.)
  12. That's too bad. Would love to have you along on our excursion. You could try calling Italy Tours to see if they have a group started for this tour for the date you will be there.
  13. We have a tour of the Amalfi Coast already going and we still have room for more if you're interested. The tour is with Italy Tours. 😁😁
  14. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. And kokopelli-az , I was looking at their website, as I have read a number of great reviews on them. I think this is who we will go with. They are the only ones so far that said they could drop us off at our hotel. But I think we will just take a taxi from the hotel to the cruise port.
  15. Yes a taxi would work for us. We just thought we would treat ourselves to a private car. Thank you for your response. I will definately check out that forum before we book anything. I don't care how we get there really. As long as they can take us right to our hotel.
  16. Can anyone who has been to Barcelona suggest a company that will drop us off in front of our hotel on La Rambla? There are only 2 of us, so a car would be fine. I have e-mailed a few companies and they say that they can't promise this, but they will do their best. Apparently sometimes they close La Rambla down to traffic at certain times of the day, etc. There is a taxi stop right out front our hotel. I have bad knees and can't walk far pulling a suitcase. Thus the reason for the drop off AT our hotel. Any help would be wonderful!
  17. I noticed there are no prices on their site.Do you have to send them a request to get a quote?
  18. I Was just looking at a site to book a private transfer with a company. When I got to the payment part, it wouldn't let me make the payment with my CC. I tried twice. Then my phone rang and it was my CC company asking if I was trying to buy something in Japan. Turns out that this (I think) is the same company. When I googled Veltra.com it said that it used to be City Discovery and Veltra took it over. They are from Japan. I did not go ahead with my purchase. The lady from the CC company said she could not see any connection to the company I was trying to book with. It was called TouristActive.
  19. We don't plan on buying anything real expensive. Souvenir t-shirts for our kids, and a few souvenirs for us. So I think we will be bypassing that long line as well. My main concern is getting to the airport and on my plane on time so I can get back home without missing my flight! 😀 Thank you so much for all the information. I wonder just how many people know about this VAT tax Recovery.
  20. WallyNDiane, I was just reading about the VAT tax, because II have never heard of it. This is all new to me as we have never travelled to Europe before. So if we do not want to claim the tax, does this mean that we Don't have to get a stamp of any sort.
  21. The Air Canada 11:45am flight to Toronto is the exact one that I was planning on booking. We don't get to Barcelona until 6am but I'm hoping that will work with us too. Thanks for posting Kokopelli-as. 😁😁
  22. Can anyone who has been to Barcelona please give me some insight. We are doing a Mediterranean Cruise. It is return to Barcelona. We arrive back in Barcelona at 6:00am on a Monday. If I book a flight for the same day for 11:45am, will that give us enough time to get to the airport. We have booked a private car to take us from the port to the airport. Thanks in advance!!
  23. Where can I go to see which ports are tender and which are docked on our Western Mediterranean cruise? I can't seem to find it anywhere.:o
  24. We have an excursion booked from Celebrity. I was wondering about transportation back to the ship if we get off on Main Street to do some shopping.:confused:
  25. I have heard that they only take Visa in Spain. Does anyone know if this is true. We have Mastercard and will need to get Visa if that's all they take there.:o
