  1. We booked a guarantee on Holland American Oosterdam. Just got our cabin assignment and it's an accessible room. Not what we wanted but was told the ship is sold out. Has anyone experienced a accessible cabin, where you happy with it?
  2. Our cruise ship departs from the port in Rome at 9:00pm. I would like to make a full day of Rome since we never been there. We plan to tour the Vatican at 1:00 and maybe do some shopping afterwards. Is leaving Rome at 5:00 getting too late? I know it's a 90 minute ride back to the ship.

    Papal Audience Worth Seeing in Rome

    Thank you for the advice. I think we will stand so we can leave when we want. I will have to read one of Ricks Steve books for more tips.
  4. This is our first visit to Rome and are very excited. Our cruse ship arrives in Rome on Wednesday morning at 7:00 am. I have requested tickets to see Papal Audience which i know will be very crowded, it starts at 10:30 and ends at noon. I would also like to tour the Vatican which is 3 hours. The only time in the afternoon available is at 2:30. Will this give us enough time to enjoy Rome and be back to the ship by 7:30 or will we be too rushed. Do you think we should give up the Papal or Vatican and just do a tour of Rome. We just wish there was more time to see everything Rome has to offer.
