  1. Yes, we are aware of the long haul for a short day, but we are trying to weigh out if it is worth it, considering we may never make it back to Europe again.
  2. Thanks for the info. We may go this route if no excursion from the ship is offered.
  3. Do you recall when/how you found out about this tour? I will be contacting Celebrity to request something like this, as that is exactly what we would like to do. Also...did you have a tour of the Vatican Museums, or was it just a quick stop at St. Peter’s? Ultimately we would love a two hour tour of the Vatican museums, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s, then a city tour so that we could see the Colosseum, Pantheon and Spanish Steps (drive-by if no time allows).
  4. We are on the June 4th sailing, too! 😊 Enjoy your trip next week...I hope you write a trip report so we can get more excited about next year!
  5. We are traveling in June 2020. We are even considering a private car tour into the city...expensive, I know, but then we would not be at the mercy of the train schedule.
  6. If we could spend a few days in Rome, we certainly would. Unfortunately that is not an option for us. Hopefully the ship will do an excursion?
  7. My husband and I are booked in a b2b on the Celebrity Constellation with our turnaround day being in Civitavecchia. I know that the ship will not have any excursions available for b2b clients, but having never been to Rome before, I am wondering if it is feasible to do a tour on our own to get into the city and see SOMETHING, rather than having to miss Rome completely. I am assuming we could get off the ship around 8am, and the all aboard time would be around 3:30 for a 5:00 sailaway. Is this too risky to have a few hours in the Eternal City? Unfortunately, a land tour before we board the ship in Venice is not feasible on this trip. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!

If not, I will ask in the Italy forum. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!
  9. Thanks for the great review! I, too, had the pleasure of sailing on the Eclipse in 8279. The balcony was amazing and Menino is one of the best stateroom attendants I have ever had.
  10. I was able to see and upload pictures to FB, but I didn’t try Spotify.
  11. I was on the Eclipse earlier this summer and was not allowed to drop bags in the room before they were ready at 1:00.
  12. What a FANTASTIC reason to celebrate! I hope your cruise is full of wonderful, happy memories.
  13. Ok...now that makes me want to go back to my cruise planner and try to figure out which would be the Evening Chic nights. Beef Tenderloin En Croute is definitely one dish I’d like to try and beef tournedos are a favourite.
