We're booked on the maiden voyage of the Emerald Princess on April 11th, 2007. Our 7th cruise. For those that have stayed in Rome and transfered to the port, can you recommend a hotel in Rome and a transfer company to the pier? We've decided not to take the train as we have too much luggage. Thanks!! Robbie
Robbie, just a suggestion (IMO). Never book a maiden voyage. The ship's paint is not dry and the crew has not worked together. We were on the Rhapsody of the Seas for her maiden voyage. It was a disaster (and I am not exagerating).
The worst bunch was the wait staff and the galley staff. Those folks could not cook anything without it being over well done. Wait staff could not even fill a glass of water wiithout getting the whole table wet.
