Two days after we received our tickets for out August 11th trip and we get an email telling us that the itineary has been changed because of a vatican holiday on the day we were supposed to arrive in Rome. This has resulted in 9 hours less port time for other ports such as Monte Carlo and Positano/Amalfi, as well as Livorno. I realize that the ship has the right to make changes, but shouldn't they have known about a major holiday way in advance? I'm disappointed that we will leave Monaco now at 6 pm rather than the original 11pm (5 hour change) and 4 hours less in Amalfi/Positano - which will probably mean we will not get to do Pompeii.
Another disappointment is the excursions offerred. The private cars/vans hold either 3, 6, or 8 people. We have a group of 4 travelling together.
I was so looking forward to this trip, but I'm beginning to have some doubts.
Anyone else in the same boat? (Pun intended)
