Thanks for taking us with you! Love that part of the world never get fed up in the med! We will be on Jewel for a b2b2b end of January, so looking forward to it.
Have a beautiful wedding day and all the very best! Dianne

Thanks for the great review@singinalot!  I enjoyed last year's and this year's.  We are doing greek isles on Rhapsody next summer so I appreciate all your info.  We are also on your Allure cruise in January!  Happy Wedding Day.  Glad you got the sickness out of the way before that.  


have a wonderful time next year! I hope you’ll report back...
and say hi if you see me in January!

Thanks for another great review!  You have me excited for our cruise next September.  I've already contacted Carmine for our Naples stop and he replied immediately.  We went to Capri last time and a private tour of the Amalfi Coast sounds perfect.  A word of warning...once you go Business Class, you can never go back (especially when sleeping)!

Omg, I can’t wait to hear what you think of your time in Barcelona. How many days do you have planned in the city?

I’m sure it will be great! I know you love to walk a city on your own. The Gothic Quarter is perfect for doing that kind of exploring. And (whether you do an in-depth review or not) I’m looking forward to your impressions of Barcelona. 😊

I highly recommend Devour Barcelona for a walking food/wine "Tapas, Taverns, and History" tour through the Gothic Quarter.  Great night.

I believe the hotel I am going to book is right around the gothic quarter: Hotel Colon. I definitely plan to come back and do a review. I'll have to check out that food tour too!

Loved the review.  The Greek Isles are on our list, but our next booking is a TA in April, 2021 (a long time to wait!).  

 

Best of luck with the wedding and hope you do come back and post photos.  I know you will be a beautiful bride!!

in the pictures above you can see the prosciutto with buffalo mozzarella beneath....the kind that when you slice into it it just oozes with soft cheesy goodness

 

the zucchini pizza below...I’ve never had anything like it...I ate it all to myself! none for fiancé

There was a family at the table next to us that we struck up a conversation with and are now friends with on Instagram. The two men bonded over their love of cars.

 

 

the potato gnocchi and ravioli....unbelievable

Love the pics of Amaifi Coast! We will be there next June. I'm so looking forward to this port.

I really liked your blue dress. I don't think it would fit me since I'm only 5' length is always a problem

we had our final breakfast aboard the ship on Saturday Oct 12.

I was um in a carb mood and the sticky buns were new emoji2368.pngemoji2368.pngemoji2368.png and hot and fresh out the oven

I had reserved our shuttle service for 9am so we went back to the room, got our bags and headed off the ship. Once again the absolute easiest debarkation ever.

Once the 2 other families in our shared service were out we were off and on our way to Rome!
