I could not agree with you more!  Who is Mr. Prince's superior?  There must be a Senior Vice-President of something to whom those of us who are dissatisfied with his entertainment decisions could contact.

 

Not 100% sure who his superior is, if he has any. He just might work directly underneath Orlando Ashford

WARNING!

Food porn ahead!

Tonight was Indonesian Rijsttafel in Tamarind. 

Manager days that the plan is to offer it once during each cruise while in Europe.

I'm happy to see that you get a bit of each main - not have to choose just one. Yum!!  We'll be doing it twice, for sure!

How was your disembark experience in Civitavecchia?

Leaving a Dam ship is depressing!

Civitavecchia was so easy. We did not use the new terminal building, which has a walkway to the ship, but one of the older semi-permanent tent terminal. This gave a slightly longer ealk from the ship to the awaiting luggage. We were called at our allotted 8.30 am and we had collected our suitcases and met our driver by 8.50 am.

 

I had booked a transfer to Rome accommodations with Stefano's Rome Cabs for 9.30 am however the driver was already waiting for us and as soon as the other Roll Call members travelling with us arrived, we were off to Roma!

 

All in all a smooth and pleasant experience. Porters were available in the luggage area if required.

So Koningsdam uses Terminal 25 then?

Good to know.

but in Civitaveccia, things can change in a heartbeat...😉

We have embarked/disembarked 4 times before from KDM and used the new 'permanent' terminal 3 out of 4 times!

Good to hear Civi has a new terminal with a jet-way, I'm still used to the tents
