    Rome Cabs

    We have used Rome Cabs on five occasions for both airport and cruise port transfers. All collections were timely and the drivers friendly, helpful and informative. On our last trip we were overnighting at the airport Hilton and our Rome Cabs driver suggested that we take a cab into the village of Fiumicino for dinner. This was excellent advice and we had a memorable seafood meal. However, the cab fare from the Hilton to Fiumicino (less than 10 minutes)was Euro 20. By comparison the Euro 50 that Rome Cabs charges for a transfer from the airport to central Rome is pretty good value for money. We''ll definitely use Stefano's service on future visits to Rome and maybe try one of the countryside tours.
  2. I think that bombing three luxury hotels in Colombo on Easter Sunday might be construed as targeting tourists even though Christians were obviously the primary target.
  3. I feel that it’s a matter of horses for courses. We enjoy Azamara for port intensive itineraries with few, if any, sea days and Celebrity for itineraries for with several back-to-back sea days for the variety of activities that the larger vessels can offer. We have always found the food to be pretty good on both lines so that would not be a determining factor for us. We usually have Club Continent Suites on Azamara and Sky Suites on Celebrity. I thing that the Azamara suites have a slight edge but they are both very comfortable.
  4. Thanks for your very comprehensive review. Our anticipation of our January 24 sailing has intensified.
