Since there has been much discussion about hotel arrangements and reservations, I thought perhaps we should open a thread.

I may have this wrong, but so far I think we have these people staying at the Locanda Orseolo:
Bev BLS
Dorothy dsawyer
Lynda Lynda90
Jackie Solivita Lady
Bob Woobstr112G

I'm booked at the Al Ponte Antico.

As we go along we can use this thread to make transportation arrangements from the airport and to the ship. We can also use it to plan any group dinners people may want to have in Venice. Last year there was a group who did some sightseeing together in Venice and Murano. That can be organized here too.

Once we start doing things like that (after we finally get to book the cruise ), I'll start keeping that information on our spreadsheet too so it's in one central place.

Ann;

You are the best. Thanks so much for starting this thread. A great tool also for maybe getting together for dinner during our pre cruise stay in Venice.....

We are staying at The Locando Orseolo also. Hopefully, as long as we book this cruise.

We would stay at the Airport Marriott again. Worked out great for us with my scooter and we were able to share a car to the ship with another roll call couple.

Last year for the Ruby, Priceline didn't give good rates at all for the Hilton. I don't think anyone booked through them.

Okay, we'll try this again. Not to worry you are all on my not yet official spreadsheet. There can't be too many more staying at the Locanda unless you're sleeping in the lounge area !
