Hi everyone, we are Jennie & Bob and while we have sailed several times, this is our first time on Cruise Mates so I hope we do this right. We are from Metairie, La. which is a suburb of New Orleans. Bob is retired (72 yrs. young), Jennie is a retired homemaker (69 yrs young) and we are very active and love to travel. We decided to take this cruise to celebrate Jennie's birthday and our anniversary both coming in December. While we have sailed on the NCL before this will be our first trip to Europe. We were trying to either fine a group who may need a couple to join them on a private shore tour in Florence, Rome and Naples, or perhaps find some other fellow cruisers who would like to join with us to form a group to do these shore tours. By joining together in groups of 6 or 8, you get a better price by sharing the cost per person and you get a better tour than you would with a larger bus tour group. We have researched and gotten information from 3 different tour companies all of whom got favorable reviews, however, Rome in Italy seems to be the most popular company of the three. If anyone needs a couple to complete their group or if any fellow cruisers are interested in joining up with us to form a group, kindly e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We are looking forward to this trip and hopefully meeting up with all of you on this cruise.
