  1. We were on the Bellissima last month and only saw our butler on the second to last night. We disembarked with a group of passengers and saw our butler then, though he didn't acknowledge us. We didn't give him his tip.
  2. I'm from NZ and the excursions I booked were in NZ dollars.
  3. MSC Opera is in dry dock at Trieste at the moment. We are on her next month so are looking forward to a fresh new look. 😁
  4. Have a great trip. Any feedback afterwards would be great. 😊
  5. Thanks electro, that's an interesting article. We had Genoa as a port stop a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. So this time we are spending a couple of days there, after our cruise in May, to see more of it.
  6. We are on MSC Bellissima in Naples on 13th May. What about you?
  7. Thank you euro cruiser. I don't want to end up stressing about the time the whole visit. Maybe we will just stick to Naples to be safe.
  8. Thank you dronnygirl and steamboats for your replies. Both very helpful.
  9. We are in Naples port from 11am to 7.30pm and wanted to visit Capri and Anacapri, including the chairlift to the top. Are we going to be too pushed to do it with possible queuing for transport there and back? My worst nightmare would be missing the ship! Also, what is the best way to get between Capri and Anacapri? We are going in May.
  10. Thanks for the review. We are on her in May. I'm looking forward to reading more of your trip, including the ports. 🙂
  11. We had the Aurea package on Splendida boarding from Civitavecchia a year and a half ago and there was no priority boarding there.
  12. We prebooked a taxi, which was waiting when we got off the ship. It took us to the catacombs and we walked back to the port from there, which was mostly downhill. I think the taxi was 30 euro. It's well worth a visit.
  13. Have you looked at the excursion lists on the MSC website? If you aren't planning on doing the official ship excursions, then the 'ports of call' forums on this website might be of some help.
  14. Thanks for the review. It's a pity they didn't have English speakers catered for as it is widely spoken as a second language.
  15. I have had ongoing issues with their website since booking in May. I have done it through a TA so while I can't see my bookings, she has been in touch with them and confirmed our bookings. I too wanted to book excursions, so have downloaded their booking form from their website, filled in the excursions we wanted, scanned it and emailed it to their reservations email address. They have confirmed our excursions and we have had the cost added to our final payment due next month. I am more confident that all is ok because of our travel agent, but will want everything in writing when we make our final payment.
