  1. how exactly does My Choice Dining work? Next Summer we've booked Aurea Balcony for Greek Cruise. The downgraded drinks package/Easy will suit us fine since we mostly drink Water, but was curious how the My Choice Dining works. Can you vary your time for Dining day to day? We previously did early seating on Meraviglia. Thank you.
  2. Thanks for the heads up. We usually just cruise in normal Fantastica level, and Embarkation has been fine, but wanted to know if there was designated Aurea window. Thanks for the info.
  3. First time cruising under the Aurea package, and it said something about on Embarkation day only we're supposed to have "priority boarding?" How will this work exactly. We're sailing out of Venice, and have heard how packed that Port is in the Summer. Is there a designated window for check-in so we don't have to be in the long line?
  4. Hi all. We are still in the planning stages of our next venture to the Greek Islands. Back in April the flights over to France from the US was very affordable, but now has increased by over $300-$500. Please share some places online you all are having good luck booking reasonable airfares from the Washington, DC area over to Venice, Italy. We flew Air France last April, and Delta, but are not opposed to flying with other Airlines if the price is under $1300 for Adults, and less for our two children (7/9yrs). Thanks for any helpful website info. Cruises are priced reasonably enough, but have not booked anything yet due to high cost of International flights over. :-(
