  1. My elderly mother will be cruising with us this November and I was just curious how handicap accessible is the Civitavecchia train station? Do they have wheelchairs? Cart assistance? She can walk, just not far.
  2. I've sailed with MSC once before but it was out of a port in the US. My family and I are sailing on the Grandiosa out of Civitavecchia November 24th. I've noticed that they allow guests embark/disembark on different days & in different ports. Meaning we do not all board on one specific date and disembark 7 days later. Like I'm used to in the US. Does this mean we will have a safety drill everyday ?? Or are safety drills just a US thing? Thanks in advance Lesley
  3. Do you happen to know the name of the bus company or if I could prebook/pay for tickets??
  4. I've been doing a lot of reading on here. I've looked at maps of Rome, Civitavecchia and then the Metro stops map as well. My questions are ....I.) We are staying near the Parliment (pic of map attached) and I'm not seeing any metro stops close by, at all. The Air BnB host said that Termini is about a 10 minute walk. There are 4 reasonably healthy adults plus luggage. Is this 10 minute walk something reasonably easy or is it more like a serious pain to try it with luggage? I've been to Rome once before but never used public transportation. So I'm not familiar with Termini. 2.) Basically the same question about the Civitavecchia train station to the cruise terminal walk. I've read that it's an even further walk now since the entrance has moved? The best I can get a private transfer for the 4 of us is 120 euros each way. Considering I'm having to pay the full amount rather than splitting 4 ways, I was hoping to find a more cost effective way. But if it's really THAT difficult to attempt with luggage then maybe the extra expense is worth it. Additionally, when we arrive back into Civitavecchia to head home we have a late flight , so we won't be on a time crunch. So I was thinking of taking the train back to FCO. Has anyone done this before? Is it possible without 1st going to Rome? Thank you in advance! Lesley
  5. Are there other nightly shows that are included in the price of the cruise?
  6. Sorry if I misspelled... But does anyone know if there is a charge to watch these shows? Or is this the nightly theater show?
  7. So based on this pic, this tour operator will take you to FCO from the cruise port for just 10 euros per person??
  8. I'm on this sailing, so it gets my vote!! Lol But in all seriousness, I went to these same ports in 2014 in November and the weather was perfect.
