Other possibility is a ferry ride to Amalfi & Positano. There are two websites showing ferry times and prices. http://www.positano.com/en/ferry-schedule?from=salerno&to=positano...

Thanks for that, very helpful. Sounds like exceptionally good value for money.

I think that is tight. It’s a very busy airport and once you’ve cleared customs it’s quite a walk down to the dock.

I’ve never heard noise from anyone on the corridors on any of our 6 cruises.

If you like steak, then I would say yes. The food in Discoveries (MDR) is very good, but the 2 speciality restaurants are a step up.

Does sound good, but we’re not that into cars. If our 11 year old grandson was coming with us, that would be a different issue - he loves cars and can identify any car he sees at a good distance,...

When we went we pre-booked with timed tickets. We did have to queue for a few minutes, but the line for those that hadn’t pre-booked was half a mile long.

We thought about the Ferrari museum, but it looks a very long day and tours there seem pricey.

Thanks for the information. I guess it’s either taxi or the local bus in Giardini Naxos, then. I hope the shuttle bus is still going into Ravenna, that would be great.

Giardini Naxos & Ravenna on Azamara
In July we will be on the Quest on a Rome to Venice Cruise.
Two of the ports are Giardini Naxos in Sicily and Ravenna in Italy.
Can anyone tell me if Azamara offer shuttle buses in these two ports...

There is violence in all large cities, you just have to keep your wits about you, not behave like a ‘tourist’ and don’t flash your money, jewellery etc. We were in New Orleans a couple of years ago....
Dubrovnik and Koper or Split and Kotor?
I’d agree. While Split is a nice town with a lovely harbour, it’s nowhere near as interesting as Dubrovnik. Walking the walls of Dubrovnik (in the morning before it gets too hot) is a lovely...

Yes, but some people have said they have problems using an IPad too.

Pricing
Seems OK to me. If you look at the Azamara website a Verandah cabin is currently cheaper than an inside - the current price is £2708 for a Verandah cabin. That allows £830 for 2 nights in a hotel in...

I would agree that you can’t rush through the museum. Also it would be a shame to do so, as you would miss so much - the wonderful Raphael rooms, the fabulous paintings in the corridors!

Thanks for this Bonnie. I presume they are also going to update the cruise details on the website too. When you do the future voyages search it is still showing Capt. Carl Smith on the Quest in June...
Azamara Quest - Petra overnight excursion
Would be good to get there ahead of the crowds in the morning. We did a ship’s day excursion. We did have plenty of time to get beyond the treasury, although we didn’t get much further than the...

You can do the Flam railway on your own, but need to book tickets online ahead of time.
