Hello there! Thanks for taking the time to click on this thread. My wife and I are going on the 14th of May 2023 trip and had a few questions regarding shore excursions. I am a second time cruiser but last time was back in 2011 or so on the Liberty of the Seas. Same itinerary different ship. Among the things Ive learned from the first trip, is the fact that the prices of shore excursions you book from the ship are way more expensive than if you book from a 3rd party provider. The port stops that are scheduled are: Palma de Mallorca, Spain Provence (Marseille), France Florence/Pisa (La Spezia), Italy Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy Naples, Italy Can anyone recommend a tour operator or activities we can do on a budget? All your input will be very much appreciated.
We are booked on the RCL "Explore Rome" (self-guided) tour on 25 May. The drop-off / pick-up points are supposed to be near the Vatican, but could be anywhere up to 0.6 miles away apparently. Does anyone know more precisely where these points are located, as it would help in planning a walking route to visit the key sites within central Rome and get back to the bus in time.
Hello! We're a large family taking our first cruise together on Symphony of the Seas in June. My elderly dad has never been out of the country and is able-bodied - he just gets anxious in crowds. I'm trying to make it as seamless and happy as possible for him. Questions: How long does it take to get off the ship in the port cities? Is it a crowded scene and are there any tips for making it less chaotic? Is it worth purchasing the "key pass" so we can get off a little early with him? Is it early enough to matter? Thank you. None of us have been on a ship this large, so I'm having trouble visualizing the process.
We are going on the Western Mediterranean sailing in the Symphony on June 15 2023 out of Civitavecchia (Rome). Does anyone know how early Royal puts shore excursions for sale on the cruise planner? Thank you!
