We are so excited about this cruise -- and would love to talk to anyone else that is going. Are you excited about Egypt or what??? We will be arriving a day early in hopes of having a look see in Rome. After talking with a travel agent and being told that the Princess before/after arrangements are what newbies should do in Rome, wonder what you think? We have been on several cruises, but never this far from home but so looking forward to it. So any suggestions from folks that have done European, etc. cruises would be welcome.
