Re: Is an Italian cruise better than a 'land trip'

To really see Italy a land tour is the only way to go. To really get a feel for a place you need to spend more than time at "attractions". You need to experience the neighborhoods, the countryside,...

Re: which cruise line

Take a pre or post cruise visit to Paris. It is too far from the sea and far too interesting to see much of anything in a 5 hour shore excursion.

Two connecting inside cabins would be the least expensive option and provide enough space for all without being too crowded. Book early as connecting cabins fill up fast on family friendly ships!

How high is a cat 6 and cat 11? Easiest is to on the deck plans via the web site. If you are booked, your cabin number will tell you this - look at the first number for the deck.

Re: Tender Vs Docked

Yes, sometimes the lines require you to have tender tickets that call you down at an assigned time to depart. I have waited an hour to get off of the ship. I suppose one could ignore this and just...

4 adults in one standard rooom would be very tight. I would check to see what the price difference would be to get an inside cabin for your sons. It may not be all that much different considering...

I would go the day before - especially if going on a transcon. We had trouble on a flight once and if we hadn't gone the day before we would have missed the ship's departure. Even with insurance I...

Re: Laws of Mexico?

One major difference - Mexican justice operates on the assumption of guilt until proven innocent rather than vice versa as in the US. The best bet is to keep a low profile and not go looking for...

Re: Hotel needed in Italy?

Is your group size 6 or 60? If 60, that is quite a group! Did you get any deals? I would think so if you have 60 people travelling. You may have trouble booking a single hotel in Rome for 60 -...

I would pick more by the ship/line than the destination. Your child will be pretty indifferent I would think to any choice. My opinion would be to mostly just hang out on the ship and let your kid...

Greece is a full member of the EU and uses the Euro as its currency. No visa needed and just a quick stop at an ATM when you arrive to get cash for your most of your destinations.
