  1. We are doing a Christmas Market Cruise the first week of December. One of our ports is Passau. The cruise line offers an optional all day excursion that day to Salzburg. We have never been to either port. For those of you who have been to both - which did you prefer and why? Thanks for your assistance.
  2. We did the Lucerne pre-cruise in April 2018. The walking tour was at 10:00 so we had all afternoon free. The bus to Basel the next day was not until 4:00 pm. You have plenty of free time in Lucerne. Lucerne was our favorite town. Loved it so much we went back there for a week in December. Enjoy.
  3. Has anyone used 'Civitavecchia Shuttle Service' from port to Rome and back? Any info is appreciated. We do not want to take the train and RCCLs shuttle drops you off in Vatican City which is not where we want to be. Thanks!
  4. Did you receive the update RCCL promised for today? We are on the May 12th sailing and anxious to hear. Thanks!
  5. We did not use a travel agent with Viking. Our only problem was that the person who booked us left the company shortly after we booked. They did not assign us to another person so, each time we called back we spoke to someone different. It was a bit annoying and every call took longer than it should but everything worked out fine.
  6. I saw that excursion but, I thought there was a shuttle that ran every so often and you could decide when to return to ship. My first time to Rome but, I thought I had seen a shuttle mentioned on this site. I could be wrong. So, there is no way to get back and forth unless you book an excursion?
  7. Thank you! Where did you find that information? I can not find it on the website and got no response when I emailed Royal Caribbean.
  8. Can anyone tell me the cost of Royal Caribbean's shuttle from the port of Civitavecchia to Rome? Any information is appreciated. Thanks!
  9. We got our cabin assignment last night. We are 31 days out.
  10. I am on the May 12th sailing and I did not get it either. Do you suppose that means they will be working on the ship while at sea and hope all is fixed by the time of our cruises? Our cabin is close to the aquatheatre. I hope we don't hear repair noise all during our cruise!
  11. We will be on Oasis of the Seas sailing out of Barcelona. Strange question but, what currency do they use in the onboard casino in the Mediterranean? I was planning to take US currency but wondered if I should get euros instead? I know I need euros at shore.
  12. We are looking at Italy too. Our flight is to Barcelona so I have looked at a flight from Barcelona to Florence and then a hotel in Florence for the week. We can do day trips to all the cities we want to visit via eurorail. Then fly back to Barcelona on the 19th for our 2 night there before we fly home. It actually is beginning to feel like a really good trip doing it that way.
  13. We are scheduled for the May 12th sailing. Hopefully we will get to sail as scheduled but, just in case, we have been researching alternatives. Our airfare and post cruise hotel is non-refundable so we are going to Barcelona regardless. Most other cruises for those dates are sold out so it might be a land trip.
