  1. As of last month, after the Barcelona to Amsterdam cruise, there was a short dry dock to put in spa cabins, according to the NextCruise person on the Rhapsody of the Seas. We booked Barcelona to Amsterdam as a follow-on to the Dubai to Barcelona cruise. We will probably cancel it, as the Suez Canal was the real attraction. We had cabin 1100. Weep.
  2. Disney fast passes are free. You can book 3 of them . There are some restrictions; they are divided into Tier One (headliner rides; you get one of these) and Tier 2 (2 of these). They are available 30 days in advance of the park visit. Once you have used your fast passes, you can book more, depending on availability. You need to download the Disney app, pay for your ticket and then you can book.
  3. Check the Italy posts, it’s a common topic there. However, Albergo Abruzzi, which is in the same piazza as the Pantheon, is as central as you can get, and was excellent.
  4. Are you going right to the port after a transatlantic flight? We used RomeinLimo for our cruise in September. We had 7 people, and received very good service.
  5. I’m really enjoying your trip report! We have a fall TA (our first one), so I’m reading with great interest! i noticed your shirt- I was on exercise in Camp Ripley for predeployment training for Bosnia. You were probably in kindergarten!
  6. I did the Jewel out of Rome in September. Menus were pretty much the same. One son is a foodie, and he had no complaints about the the main dining room. Dress was slightly more formal, but even on formal nights, it wasn’t over the top. I don’t recall shorts in the dining room at dinner. Short dresses and long pants/ button up shirts with or without jackets is what I remember. As for activities, we were with family, and I realized that we hadn’t gone to a single event! As Bob said, it’s pretty port intensive. it you haven’t been to Rome, it’s a wonderful city! It was the best family holiday we have ever taken. Enjoy!
