  1. We will be on the Meraviglia in April, too! With five children...hoping the waterslides are open. Do you know if they charge extra for them?
  2. Great, great advice! I'm a former flight attendant and was blessed to visit a number of beautiful locations in my line of work. Getting to see a new place really revs my engine, and with this itinerary, I've only been to Rome. And that place never gets old or too familiar. The Netflix series Fat Salt Acid Heat nicely profiled Genoa in the "Fat" episode...can't wait to explore there, too!
  3. Thank so much for this important info! Malta looks so beautiful in the photos, so I can't wait to see it up close!
  4. Great description- thank you! It sounds like quite the comprehensive offering of a spa experience, truly. Thanks for the nudge to consider how much it will get used, as our trip is port-intensive and we are sure to go ashore at all the destinations. We will have to think over the schedule. But, boy, it sounds like a great option!
  5. Bea, thank you SO much for this valuable info! I had seen some questions earlier about what is included in drinks packages, but yes there it is in black and white 🙂 There seem to be some wonderful excursion options- hard to pick one! Valletta looks absolutely fascinating and I thought an excursion would help us get the most bang for our buck. The other places we will wing it. Luckily the crowd I'm with is pretty laid back and just looking forward to the whole experience, with a few pre-planned things thrown in. Thanks for the congratulations...very blessed to be able to celebrate the milestone together in such a grand way, with extended family!
  6. Hi all- love this forum and all the great info from the members! Heading out of Rome (Palermo, Genoa, Barcelona, Marseilles, Valletta) on April 7 with a group of 14 of us, from age 8 to 76, celebrating my parents' big 50th anniversary. My dh and I are the only ones who have cruised before, on Celebrity for our honeymoon back in 2002! We are booked on the Bella experience, on deck 8 with a couple of adjoining cabins. Still working out the details but so excited for this big trip! Questions: -Upon embarking, do we check our carry on bags with a porter, or do we just take them on ourselves? -My sister is bringing her 3 kids, and I my two. What is a good laundry package to consider? -Is it easy to grab the train in Marseilles to go to Provence? Or better to stick with the cruise excursion? -Are premium coffee drinks included in the Non-Alcoholic package? (the only drink I care about is coffee :) ) -Is the Rabat, Mosta and Mdina City tour a good option for the Valletta port? My son and nephews (ages 12 and 14) are intrigued by the Knights and I think this would be a great excursion. -Is the Thermal Pass worth it? I am eager to sit in the Himalayan salt room and I love a good sauna. Thank you in advance! We booked this over a year ago and can't believe it's almost time to cruise!
