  1. Evita- thansk and thank all you guys- you never let me down with great info! We booked Celebrity in the end and as doing a cruise from the UK for 8 nights tehre are no flights and lots of offers on we are treating them to balcony cabins so should be fun.
  2. thanks as for the first time we are cruising from Southampton so port parking would be ideal
  3. Does anyone know if we can do this from the UK as about to book with Celebrity for 6 of us ( as beating the UK TA price ) but would be even better if we could get some more OBC as treating the grown up kids and their other halves. thanks
  4. Can anyone advise if you can do this with UK bookings?
  5. Thanks all- been super helpful!
  6. Thanks- i feared this from other reviews but good to have it confirmed. I might not give them the choice..
  7. All, We have said we will take out adult kids away next year with their partners so looking at 6 cruise fares rather than 2 so focuses the mind a bit more! Historically we have always done RCL and more recently Celebrity and narrowed down the choices to 2 now- Celebrity Silhoutte v NCL Dawn. Itineraries aside can anyone give me ther views if cruised both lines. The “kids” are /early 30s so don’t need entertaining but keen to offer them perhaps a younger crowd whilst a balancing that with the demographic we prefer on celebrity. Also we don’t want to have too many kids around ( although looking at May so not UK holidays). We have sailed on the Eclipse and loved it so aware of the Silhouette class ship but clueless on NCL. RCL might have been best with climbing wall etc but no offers on at present and good offers on both NCL and Celebrity which is driving choice. Any thoughts?
  8. Yes they do have a full kitchen and beside the university
  9. Hello all We have been to Naples and the surrounding area numerous times and done all the big sites so thought about doing a Naples walking tour when we dock on the Celebrity Constellation on Sunday 7 July. The normal free ones don’t operate on a Sunday when we are in port but this one will do a tour at €12pp if I get 10-15 people ( they can accommodate up to 20). This is the website and looking at 10am start (from port ). It is a 2 hour tour and suggesting 10am start so lots of time left to do further exploring. It ends in the Old Town so perfect fro further DIY sightseeing. http://www.napolithatsamore.org/our-tours/best-of-naples/ They get good reviews - anyone who is interested email me at Kathleen.mcleay@ncmfundservices.com https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g187785-d8093647-Reviews-Napoli_That_s_Amore_free_walking_tours-Naples_Province_of_Naples_Campania.html
  10. Thank you - I have been to monte Cassino but will maybe hire a car and try caserta.
  11. Thank you- we love military history as opposed to ancient history, food and wine and generally wandering around nice pales- very easy to please and don't need much in way of entertainment!
  12. Ah thanks all and think we might just stay with Naples wandering! We have done all the usual sites as been on holiday in that area independently a few times and also on cruise stops. Also the day we are in port is the day all sites are free to locals so suspect they will be even busier than ususal.
  13. Hi- we are considering going to Ischia for the day from Naples Can anyone advise if the hydrofoil leaves from the same port, if they have done it and if worth it? I note from other research best to get tickets at the port as more flexible than pre booking on line but unsure which option is best if coming from the cruise port. Ischia looks lovely and we have been to Naples before so ticked off most of the big things to do. thanks
  14. I think it depends on what you like to do.. my preference would be a walking tour as having done lots you will get a much better feel for the city and its culture and architecture than staying in one ( albeit beautiful ) place. However if you are a massive art history buff then maybe the Doges will tick a big bucket list item for you. I gave my husband the choice ( we have a full day but timings didn't work to do both) and he chose the walking tour over the Secret Doges tour ( book in for that if timings work then you get access to other parts so would maximise what you see). My opinion only but enjoy whatever!
