Is anyone interested in sharing shore excursions for this cruise? This is our first cruise so i am not sure exactly how it works. I understand that some offered by Oceana may be expensive - perhaps we can share or do our own thing? Especially interested in Sicily, Monaco, Amalfi, Pisa/Florence port stops. My husband and I are in our late 50s/early 60s and very active non-smokers. Pls give email and i can contact you directly. Also just interested in meeting fellow passengers of any age / background -- maybe to have dinner together some night.
We are booked on this cruise, we were on Oceania Regatta last year from London to Rome and had a great time, we are going with a couple we met on that cruise. We are leaving for Athens, from Palm Springs, Ca, on August 31, in Athens for 3 nights at the Westin Astir Palace, and staying in Tuscany for 2 weeks after cruise. I'm in my early 50's my husband mid 60's, very active, non smokers, and like to explore independently from the ship excusions. We have been to alot of these ports on previous, cruise on Crystal. My email address is: jmdpsca@yahoo,com.
I got some information on a Mt. Vesuvius Pompeii tour. Details are below. The whole tour is approx 8-9 hours. They will pick us up and drop us off at the dock. They can suggest a couple of different places where we can go for lunch. If for some reason, the boat doesn't wind up docking in Sorrento, we will not be charged for the tour. If for some reason, we are rerouted to dock in Naples, I can just call them ahead of time and let them know. I researched the tour company and they have gotten good reviews... check out the link:
So far, we have myself and my husband interested. If anyone else might be interested, please reply to the thread and we can get this coordinated.
