  1. How do price drops work in the UK? Is it loss of £100 pp deposit and then start again....?
  2. Only one I can find is the brand new MSC Grandiosa - you can pick her up in Genoa on 3/14. Visits Genoa, Italy, Civitavecchia, Italy, Palermo Sicily, Italy, Valletta, Barcelona, Spain, Marseille, Genoa, Italy. Less than $1000 for a balcony. Nothing from Barcelona at that time. Too early! Or 3/15 from Malaga there is the Marella Dream - Visits Malaga, At sea, Palma, Toulon, Barcelona, Spain, Valencia, Cartagena, Spain, Malaga. Marella Dream is the old HAL Westerdam. Marella are All Inclusive...
  3. It is $44.95pp to stay on board. Latest time to disembark is 2.45p. It is cheaper if you stay on board till midday. You still have to be out of your cabin by 8.30 but you get to use the pool (if it is open) and the WJ one more time...! I was on Jewel last week.
  4. Yes they will show the UK premier league games and major UEFA football games if they can secure the signal. Often on the big screen by the pool or there is a 'sporty' bar where Boleros used to be on Explorer with multiple screens - assume you are talking about UK sailings this year?
  5. Oasis class usually only does the 7n round trip from Barcelona interporting in Rome. Too big for Venice. For Croatia you will either need a Venice-Barcelona or Venice-Rome trip (or vice versa) _think Brilliance was doing this next year; or a smaller ship like Rhapsody which is usually based in Venice and does Croatia and/or Greek Islands. Croatia is far nicer than Greek Islands IMHO if you were torn between two itineraries! No Quantum class in Europe (yet...) OT but have you looked at Azamara which does great Venice/Croatia itineraries and as it is a much smaller ship it can get into really unique ports. I have done that a few times.
  6. And on Jewel last week there was no wine at the M&M and they said they had been told by HO they were not to give out wine any more. Guess Indie didn’t get the email!! Looks like there were 585 members of the non roll call. They would have needed a lot of bottles of wine if they all showed!
  7. You may find some comparisons here.
  8. We used them for our pre cruise transfer from FCO to Civitavacchia and likewise, would recommend. €65 for 2.
  9. Not a fan of cooking smells round the pool and dirty plates and cutlery lying around...so it’s a no from me. jmho.

  11. Last week 7/7/19 the Jewel used the brand new concrete (!) building, still Banchina 12-13. We were pulling in and docked well before 6am and first people off we’re about 6:30. It is about 50 mins to FCO.
