  1. Thanks Jacqui. Hope you and Jose are well. Fondly remember our Flamenco performance years ago. Carole
  2. We have a 9:00pm sailing time. When do you think the muster drill would be held?
  3. This vid brought back so many memories when I did this WWII cruise on the Statendam. Some of the ports were different then but it was an amazing experience. Thank you for posting.
  4. Both DH and I are “mature” individuals and were suffering from colds so we begged to have our bags handled. We were given expedited tickets are let off the ship at 7:30 but were not able to pick up our bags until the ship released them at almost 8:00. Had we known we would have struggled with the bags ourselves.
  5. There was a fellow standing outside the terminal. We negotiated a fare of $150€ and that is about $20$ higher than the transfers. We shared the van with six other passengers. Since he was allowed to negotiate inside the port area I believe he was a legitimate taxi. I understand when you book in advance you get your taxi just outside the port, but I could be wrong. I try to go out early as well and stayed overnight at FCO, I had a transfer for the flight back on disembarkation. Had I been informed when I booked the transfer I would have made other arrangements.
  6. Just had a stressful experience when disembarking the Koningsdam in Rome. The day before we were to leave, the disembarkation package arrived and instead of our transfer to the airport, they had us scheduled to go to Rome. When I went to the front desk to correct the issue, they told me that we would have to take a taxi to the airport because my flight left before noon (11:20am). I had provided my flight information when I purchased the transfer so I was not happy. I was told that there was no way I would make the flight. Well I got expedited disembarkation and then had to wait for my bags. When I asked about getting a taxi I was told by HAL personnel that I should have booked in advance. I summary, there was a "taxi" right at the entrance to the customs area and we shared a ride. We were at the airport over two hours in advance in plenty of time to catch the flight, Our transfer was refunded but nothing could be done the about the stress felt about missing our flight home
