  1. We stayed at the Seaport Boston a few years back and it was fantastic! Surrounded by great restaurants and only about a 10min taxi or Uber ride to the cruise terminal.
  2. "Boy, those French. They have a different word for everything!" Happy Cruising!
  3. Good luck to you with that. Happy Cruising!
  4. Before we got our arrangements worked out, I looked at mydaytrip.com. They seemed to be the most reasonable, still not cheap, but.
  5. So we are flying into Venice but flying out of Bologna. Our TA could book the shuttle from Venice to Ravenna, but not from Ravenna to Bologna. RC told her that we would have to book that on board. They could only book round trip shuttles to and from the same destination in advance. Huh? Happy Cruising!
  6. I'd have to agree from what I've read here over the years. Happy Cruising!
  7. We've been very happy with Kathy Geiger. Happy Cruising!
  8. Definitely great news! It wasn't long ago we were going to need 3 covid tests getting to and from our Greek Isle cruise in Oct, but as of Sat, we'll only need the one to board the cruise. Hopefully by Oct that one will disappear too. Happy Cruising!
  9. Don't miss the Tutti Bar on sea days in the MDR! I hope it's back after Covid. Anybody know? Happy Cruising!
  10. The Isola Nova del Tronchetto is the people mover station near the cruise terminal in Venice. This is where the busses leave from. I'm not sure where you are staying, but if you have access to the Vaporetto, you can take the #2 and there is a Tronchetto Mercato stop which would only be a short walk to the station. This would be your least expensive option. This is what we are doing in Oct. Happy Cruising.
  11. It really all depends on what type of activities we are interested in. As far as the MDR, we always choose My Time Dining. This always us the ability to adjust what time we eat. Eat earlier if there is a show we want to see. Eat later if we are coming back from an on-shore excursion. Even though you need to select a time ahead of time, you can change it easily once you are on board to suit your needs. Or just show up at what ever time you want and wait for the next table available, like a traditional restaurant. We've done this multiple times with a very short wait. Happy Cruising!
  12. We've also used this and have had no problem getting what we've asked for.
  13. Also, I think dining in the MDR is a good way to start your cruise, especially your first one. Make sure to do the 2nd formal night in the MDR usually night 6 on a 7 night or more cruise. Also known as lobster night. They're not the biggest or best lobster tails you will ever have, but they are all you care to eat!
  14. My TA got us shuttle transfers through RC for $58pp each way through RC. Not without jumping through some hoops though. RC requires same day flight info to pre-book the service. Who is flying into Venice the morning of a cruise with a 2.5hr bus trip ahead of them? The cheapest private service I found was through Mydaytrip.com. you might want to look there. They offered private van service up to 7 passengers for 346 Euros. You'd obviously need two vans, each way, so that's roughly 140 Euros round trip per person. Good luck. Happy Cruising!
  15. They're strictly for transportation in and around Venice. And even if they did, I'm not sure you'd want to foot the bill for the trip considering 126 Euros was the cheapest I could find for a water taxi just from Marco Polo Airport to Venice.
  16. We are staying about a 5min walk from the Pizzale Roma tram station, so we will walk there and then take the people mover to Isola Nova del Tronchetto. Happy Cruising!
  17. Shuttle update. So apparently, according to an email I just got from my TA, RC will not book an airport transfer from 2 different airports in advance. We are flying into Venice, but out of Bologna. She could only book the trip from Venice to Bologna, and that we would have to book the transfer from Ravenna to Bologna once on board. She's going to investigate some more and get back to me. I'll pass the info along. If I wanted to jump through this many hoops, I would have joined the circus. Happy Cruising!
  18. Matt also likes to shop at Tar-zhay!
  19. I have not heard anything about the water taxi. Water taxi from where?
  20. RC is offering shuttle service from Porto Corsini to Venice City Center for $58pp. The drive is 2.5hrs, whether by bus or private transfer.
