OP here. Boy, was I surprised to see this old thread pop up!! We ended up having great massages, but I don't recall where it was--not that many years ago!

When I book with a TA, I lose a small portion of the credit but certainly not all of it! I talk with them before they charge my card and explain that I want the charge to be from NCL so I get the...

I was responding to the poster who said that the waitress told him or her that they could eat only rice as there was no way to know if something had come into contact with what the poster is allergic...

Bonjour, Marazul! I can certainly see why. I enjoyed wandering around the village and soaking it in!

Merci!

I opted to not fill my car before returning it as the woman at Avis let me know what the refill charge would be. It was E14 and for me it was worth paying that to not have to find a station and fill...

I asked some of the same questions, BQ, as I read the post about how busy a Friday would be. But, I was assured (by marazul, I believe) that I would be there after the busy season, and he or she was...

Hi, all! I'm back from my trip and wanted to thank Hiltner. marazul, and hitherandyon for the great information and encouragement! I had a wonderful time. I rented from Avis (about a 30-minute walk...

Perditax, I'm sorry to hear you're disappointed in RC. I've never sailed them--something about them just hasn't appealed. I hope you find some redeeming qualities and that you're far, far away from...

I totally agree. I'd much rather be in a studio than an inside. Whoever designed it knew what they were dong. If I could change anything I'd make the bed smaller--not as small as a twin, but a little...

Thank you very much, Lisa. It's good to hear from someone who boarded in Rome so recently! I'll definitely try to change my dinner reservation.
Thanks all! I think I'll change my dining...
Thanks all! I think I'll change my dining reservation to a little later when I board. I've been chatting with some of the folks on our roll call for well over a year and I don't want to have rush...
What time is muster drill when boarding Epic in Rome (Civitavecchia)?
I apologize for posting a new thread as I'm sure this has been discussed here before, but the search function is not working right now (even putting in just "Epic" results in a message telling me...

I've never paid a fee at a European ATM--not saying some don't charge them, but I've never been charged by one and I've used ATMs in about 15 European countries. :D

Good to know! thanks!

We almost did one for my daughter's bridal shower but we had a few to many people--it looked like a blast.

I've never done it, but I know what it is. Sounds like fun! I'll have to think about whether I want to spend my one sea doing anything but lounging in the spa! LOL. But if i were to do anything, that...

Never mind. I just read pe4all's review and someone there commented they've switched the ports back beginning later in October (I debark Oct 4). Mystery solved. ;)

Judy, I like to have cash-in-hand when I land, too.For my first major trip to Europe, we were traveling through 13 countries and I had to get six different currencies so went to Wells Fargo, but I...

Thanks for the review! I headed to Rome in 10 days and on the Epic a week later, so very much enjoyed reading about your trip!

I'm a shopper, so thanks for the info on the VAT. I did that in...

Are you sure you're stopping in Marseille? I'm on the same cruise a little earlier and Marseille was swapped for Palma, Majorca months ago. Did they change it back? Their website is still showing...

I'll try to remember to do that. I've gotten so much helpful advice from this thread! :D 11 days and counting!

It depends on what you want and what you consider "best." I've taken four Alaska cruises--two in June so I could fish for King salmon and two in August for wildlife viewing. Bear viewing was amazing....

I agree! Often on cruises when I'm solo I have dinner or go on excursions with couples. I love meeting people and hearing their stories and it doesn't matter to me if they're also sailing solo. On...
