  1. We will also be on the 7/26 cruise. Will definitely get unlimited laundry service too, seems well worth it. Don't want to worry about over-packing for a long cruise and will most likely use more than 4 bags during the trip. Thanks 'janmcm' for the insights about the corner cabin too. Was really hoping that it was worth it and it's great to hear that it is from someone who has experienced it before.
  2. I believe our ship is on the smaller side so we will be tendering in Giardini Naxos, which sounds much better. Thank you both for the great information, it good to get ideas from people who have already been there.
  3. We will be in Taormina on a HAL cruise in early August. I believe we have the whole day in port, 11am to 11pm. We have decided to not do any excursions that day but would like to do some of the sights on our own. One of the things that we were thinking about is spending a couple of hours at a beach if there is time. Can anyone recommend a good beach in the area? Would it worth it? Otherwise, any other recommendations on how best to spend some time on our own while in port for the day would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much
  4. That sounds great, I will not worry about getting tickets in advance. I will definitely check out the Scuolo del Cuoio too and thanks so much for such a quick response!
  5. We are going to be in Florence in July on a Monday when a lot of the museums and such are closed. I have read reviews in other posts about all of the other great things there are to do on a Monday anyway. I did not however see any information regarding the Basilica Santa Croce. I was thinking of visiting there as it looks to have many interesting things to see as well. I would appreciate any feedback that anyone may have. Should I buy admission tickets ahead of time or would it be ok to wait until the day that we are there? Would appreciate any advice. Thanks
  6. Thanks for the quick responses and info. I guess we can always use the ship's paid laundry service then?
  7. We will be taking a 12 day Mediterranean trip on the Veendam in July. Was wondering if anyone knows if there is a self-serve laundry on board or if you need to utilize a shipboard laundry service. Do not want to over pack but want to make sure that clothes can be washed while on board. Also, can anyone provide info regarding Stern facing cabin B223 on the Verandah Deck. Does it have a nice sized balcony? Thanks for any information
