  1. Thank you for your reply. I thought you were referring to connections going to Europe as opposed to connections coming from Europe.
  2. Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures and commentary. I truly appreciate you doing this review. Great job 1of4.
  3. Oh that’s wonderful! We really loved it. The shops and restaurants are about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. It was less than 10 minutes to the beach bar “Gigi’s” if you want to google map it. We just wandered all around. Bought Prosecco for the ship. Ate some really good pizza. It’s difficult to know how to answer whether someone with mobility issues can do it. I guess if you get to the beach and find it’s too much for that person then maybe sit on a bench with a gelato then head back. At the beach bar there are two streets to choose from. Both have good shops and restaurants but you may want to stick to the one on the right since there’s a minor hill with the one on the left. Have you landed at FCO before? If not, when you come out into the main terminal you will see all the drivers standing behind a railing holding the name of the person they are picking up. Our driver got stuck in traffic so when we didn’t see him inside we found him outside. Make sure you have the email address or phone number of the hotel handy just in case you have trouble. Worse case scenario is you just get in the cab line outside if you can’t find your driver. Oh! And the “secret” garden is up the stairs to the left as you’re looking at the hotel from the seafront restaurant. It’s easy to enter from the hotel entrance side if you don’t want to use the stairs. Beautiful landscaping and a breezy covered area with nice seating if you get too hot in the sun all overlooking the water. Hope this helps!
  4. Is that your TA’s policy response or is it HAL’s? It doesn’t fall in line with my experiences booking direct with a HAL PCC.
  5. For accommodations near the port, and something completely different, I highly recommend Hotel Villa Della Palme. The hotel arranged for transportation from the airport and then to the port (less than 15 mins away). It was a lovely clean hotel with great staff and food (and a hidden garden that no one found but us) next to a beautiful beach and within walking distance to a great downtown area with lots of shops.
  6. I am not one to use them but my friend has purchased from CheapOair on a number of occasions with no complaints yet.
  7. Thank you for the beautiful pictures and commentary, Copper. I am afraid that plate with the stuff that looks like centipedes would have to go straight back to the kitchen, however. That freaked me out!
  8. I’m a little confused. Your TA is on the east coast?
  9. Sorry. No double mariner points on an upsell to a suite.
  10. Sorry, it was a generalized response!
  11. The bad NS’s are forward Spa cabins!! When you call they will tell you what’s available so have your deck plan ready.
  12. Happy Anniversary!! You two make a good-looking couple. That skeleton head is amazing! Someone sure is talented. Your pictures are beautiful. It looks positively balmy up there!
