  1. The closest airport to Ravenna is in Bologna. It is a one hour train ride to the center of Ravenna. down load the Trenitalia app. You can get all your train tickets In Italy on it. It’s the national rail system site. Fyi. The main station in Rome is called Roma Termini.

  3. Thank you so much for the information. I will make sure and take all my documents with me just in case including test results.
  4. I have done plenty of B2B cruises but have never left the port between sailings. So here are my questions: 1. Am I allowed to do this? 2. Do I have to go back through all the same processes as if I were a new passenger? 3. How does Covid testing play into this? Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks
  5. Yes, it all depends on the weather. Something else to consider is the noise you get from the anchor and the tie-off ropes in the front. This only applies to the lower decks 2,3 and 4.
  6. Athens I recommend The Royal Olympic Hotel. It’s close to everything in Athens. It has one of the best rooftop restaurant and bar in Athens. Stunning views of the Acropolis. Venice, I would stay at Hotel Palazzo Vitturi it’s right in the center of Venice Those are wonderful city’s. Have a great time!
  7. My wife and I did a S2S pre-Covid and Royal provided the transportation from Miami to Ft Lauderdale. It was no problem. If they don’t, just use Uber or Lyft. That will be your least expensive and quickest way. Have a great trip!
  8. Everyone please remember to tip the person that brings you your Diamond drink only if it’s a dollar. Those folks do not receive any gratuity for Diamond service. It’s the right thing to do.
  9. Since all of the 2021 Transatlantic cruises from Europe back to the states are on hold, they are not showing up on the web site. Can everyone post the following information: Ship Name, departure port, date and arrival port that you know of? Thanks in advance for all the information.
  10. I’m on that same cruise on Jewel out of Galveston and was wondering the same thing.
  11. We have been on Enchantment many time. Great Ship!! If you are staying in a suite The Key is not worth the extra dollars. You will get almost the same benefit with the suite. No there is not a special pool seating area for Suite or Key guest.
  12. I use the Bank of America Travel Card. Have been very happy with it. No annual fee, 1.5 points per dollar on all purchases. Those points are redeemed for anything travel related. I use the card for almost all my personal and business purchases. I’ve not paid for a cruise in 4 years. My points have covered 3 or 4 cruises per year. The trick is to make sure you pay the balance off each month so you don’t pay interest. If you can’t do that then it’s worth it at all as the interest rate is high, but if you can it’s the only way to travel. 3 years ago I took my family of 6 on a 2 week vacation to Greece, England and Scotland. The total cost of the trip was $20,000. The points covered all but $1500 for meals. Plus the card offers free currency exchange. Also it is very easy to redeem the points. Use just log into your account and apply the points to your purchase and it removes it from your balance. The card does offer some insurance but would suggest additional protection.
  13. Joe, Thank you for your service! It takes a special person to service in the silent service!! Beat Army! This is something my wife and I have talked about doing. Take a transatlantic from Florida to Europe in March/April. Spend the 6 months or so traveling in Europe with a Euro rail pass and AIR B&B’s Then catch a transatlantic back to Florida in October/November. What a great way to travel.
  14. We do the very same thing. SWA into FLL. The cheapest and easiest way to get to Miami Cruise terminal is to get a Lyft. Once you collect your bags walk out the door and turn right. Walk about 300 ft and you will be at the pick up area. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the ship. Very easy.
  15. For us its been from 30 days out up to 2 weeks out. Mostly about the 30 day mark.
