We are also booked for June 11th. Unfortunately, I will not be able to give you any advice because it is our first cruise also. Over on the cruisecritic.com board, there is another couple from Tulsa going and a group of 7. We are looking forward to this trip and look forward to meeting you.
Me and my husband are from New York and we are flying into Rome on June 8th so that we can spend a couple days in that City. After the Cruise we are flying to Sicily and spending a week there to see his family.
We are from Houston. Although we would have loved to do so, my job constraints will not allow us to stay very long on either end. We are, however, spending a day in London before and after the trip. Unfortunately this means that we will have almost no time in Rome (a few hours). But we will just use that as an excuse to go back.
Me and my wife are in our late 30's both from Texas. As a matter of fact, I have never visited any place north of Kansas or east of Tennessee. My wife has been trying to get me to go to New York, but it has never worked out.
