 Crystal, just making it over here now that I am done on the X board. Did you get a chance to sit and people watch here over a great cup of Roman coffee?

Norris, thanking you for the Sant Angelo pics as we just looked at it from the bridge

 

so glad to have you reading along now after your wonderful journal! 

 

you and Carol mustttt go in the Castel next time you are in Rome. It is definitely worth it IMHO.  We did not take a seat at the coffee shop unfortunately. 😞

No worries Crystal, I will visit the coffee shop next October and report back with photos!

Castel Sant Angelo figures in one of our favorite operas called Tosca but it looked very busy and we knew there were stairs to negotiate inside to get those great views you did so decided to stay at ground level and walk along the Tiber. 

It's Rome-every street is interesting and inviting!

Norris, congratulating you and Nate on your marriage!

We took the first tender from the ship and had about an hour to kill before it got there. While we were waiting we met 2 couples who we ended up chatting with the whole time. Never did see them again after we got off the bus in Oia.
 

 

Your review is amazing! Thank you for all the tips!

Just curious: How did you manage to get off the ship before the crowd? Is that because of your C&A status? Cabin choice? or the Keys? I heard only the ship-organized tours get to get off early.

thanks Jenny! we never had any issues getting off the ship early. Even in Santorini. We just got in line right before official debarkation time as listed on the daily. We’re only gold. Honestly there was never really anyone in line with us...their loss!

Thank you for the quick reply! And congratulations on your big day!

 

Good to know about the debarkation line. I was thinking of the Key just because it's such a port-intensive itinerary and we'd like to get off early, but it's >$1K for the whole family. 

 

We are traveling almost the same itinerary next June. I am excited but also a bit nervous about the heat and the crowd. If it's that hot and crowded in October, June will be worse.

Please tell me the name of the song playing at the beginning of your video. I hear it often, but can't catch the title.

@bettyboop16 thank you! It’s called Perfect Symphony by Ed Sheeran & Andrea Bocelli. We love this version.

they key would be a waste IMHO

it will definitely be hot for you that’s for sure but honestly I wouldn’t worry about the crowds. The beauty of what you see is so overwhelming you mostly forget about it

well...got the photos from the photographer and they are honestly awful. every single one is pixelated or cropped beyond printing capability...it’s devastating to be honest but Jm so thankful for the photos my friends and family randomly took.

these are from the photographer...I will say she did it for free so beggars can’t be choosers buttttt
