Here is my problem:
I want to spend a full week traveling around Italy before the cruise, taking trains to each area. The itinerary would be going from Venice to Rome, with Florence in between, with the possibility of branching out to surrounding cities. Obviously, I can't haul two bags at the same time while traveling alone with no car. I do not need or want to have my dress shoes, jewelry, nice tops, skirts, and dresses, which I need for sailing on Crystal, while doing a land tour. Crystal does have a luggage valet service. I don't know the cost, but I do know it goes from my house to my suite, according to the website. Crystal is a very formal cruise line, so I will need an entire small suitcase to pack all of my best clothes. In this situation, it seems pretty obvious I need to use the luggage valet.
