So true! Long and boring ride.
Everyone was keeping up just fine. We did lose someone for about 10 minutes at some point, and we had two guides so one stayed behind to meet them. There were about 25 or so people, so not too large a group, not too small. We had meeting times for everything. And we also all had little speakers that the guides would talk into so we could hear them even if we couldn't see them.How many people were in your group and how does that work with the guide and the green puff? Does he just leave someone if they get distracted and don't keep up?
Loving all the pictures!
We did not go inside the Sistine Chapel, but I know Disney offers another tour that does that. I do not know if the tour I was on would have went to the Spanish Stairs since they were under construction when we went. The Disney tour was great though.Loving your trip report! It is so helpful in planning our trip in August 2017. Trying to decide on the tour you did in Rome through DCL or Can't Be Missed tours.
Did the Imperial tour include the Museums and Sistine Chapel on your way into St Peters Basilica? Were you able to see the Spanish Stairs?
Leaning towards the DCL tour just for peace of mind...but would really like to see those two sites as well.
I really did like this one but Disney does have a ton to choose from at this port. And i'm with you on that, we were going to do it on our own but then I saw how far it was from the port. We would never have been able to enjoy ourselves if we didn't go with Disney on this one.Ugh, Im still deciding between the tour you took (Imperial & Renaissance) or the Highlights of Rome tour since there's 2 hrs starting at Piazzo del Popolo and we can walk to every stop we have on our list and back in 48 minutes (not including time to take pics so that gives us an hour of pic time). Same price but too many DCL choices for Rome. We were planning on DIY at all our ports but this port is just too far from rome for my comfort. Plus we are leaving our youngest on board while in Rome as it will just be too much for her to go all day long. I'm so enjoying your TR though as we go in Sept 2017!!!
Thank you! OH that backpack, it is pretty durable. Mine is starting to pull apart at the strap, but I used it for a very big and long move to a different country and it was jam-packed with a lot of weight and it is still holding up! I also use it every day for work. I cannot wait to read the rest of your report.I found your trippie
I love your photos, so beautiful! And I spied your backpack I hope mine lasts because it's been my favourite backpack ever!
Wow, so many ports! I would love to do this cruise one day but with a crabby, complainy 10-year old, I don't think it would not be a good idea.
Funny about your hubby getting called out for his non-dancing
Looking forward to the rest
