You should absolutely get a private guide for the Vatican. We were there a couple of weeks ago. It was VERY crowded and hot. Without a guide I don't think we would have lasted 10 minutes. We were...

It is a Sunday morning and someone else had posted the ticket office was not opened. The machine would only take credit cards with a chip (we don't have) or change (that will be tough to manage with...
Toulon Plan B
We were planning to take the train to Cassis. Sounded a little complicated, but I thought we could do it. Getting tickets for the train sounded a little questionable, but I wasn't too concerned...

We are booked to go there with Rome In Limo next week. They said we did not have to purchase tickets ahead of time, but to let the driver know as soon as we depart if we wish to get tickets. If it...

Thanks! That should be fine. We'll just have to monitor the kids closely at the pool so we don't have a huge bill for towels at the end of the cruise!

We have two tours booked for our upcoming trip. There are 16 of us and they did offer a discount of 100 Euros per trip (1100 versus 1200) for two 8 passenger vans. Perhaps you have to fill a whole...
Beach Towels
We will be on LOS in one week! We have only cruised once before on Celebrity in the Caribbean. On the port days they left beach towels for us in our rooms to use off the ship. I'm assuming the...

Aerobus
I was planning to use the Aerobus to get to our hotel in Barcelona next week. Just want to make sure I know what we're getting into. What is the cost and can we pay by credit card? If we need...

Would it be okay to leave $ bills? I have a bunch of singles I could bring along to have handy for tipping. I sort of thought Euros would be necessary, though. Does anyone know about this?
That sounds good. Thanks for the input. I'll...
That sounds good. Thanks for the input. I'll have to make sure we get some smaller Euro denominations before we go.
room service
We have a lot of early mornings on our upcoming med cruise. I'm planning to order room service for breakfast most of those days. We are on LOS out of Barcelona. Is there a charge or do we just...
Smart casual and Casual for boys
We are flying out in less than two weeks and I'm working on making sure everyone has the correct clothes. And trying to be efficient since we'll be away for 13 days and are traveling with four...

Thanks so much for all the replies. It appears this is late at night. We are traveling with 10 children and have very busy days planned, so I doubt we will be up for this. But perhaps we'll bring...

Thanks so much for all the great advice. I will check these out and see what my husband prefers and get something ordered for both of us this week.

We are going to be in Barcelona for several...

Thanks so much for the replies!

4774Papa, Thanks for the restaurant and tapas recommendations. Would those places work for a large group with children. We are three families w/ 10 children total...
Money belt
I was planning to get myself a travel safe purse and my husband a money belt. I found a pacsafe purse I like, but I'm a little loss with regards to the money belt. Is there a particular brand you...
Barcelona Sights
We'll be in Barcelona post-cruise 8/11-8/14. We have a list of places to go and things to do, but not really a set itinerary. We want to see Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, Cathedral, Marketplace on...
White Party
I have seen mentioned that some of the cruises have a white party one night. I see nothing about this on the RC site. We're on LOS out of Barcelona on 8/4/12. Does anyone know if this might be...
LOS booking show times
We're departing out of Barcelona on 8/4/12. I saw we can make reservations for the shows. I went ahead and booked the ice show, because there was a time that worked well and I had read that was a...

We did a Celebrity cruise Easter week a couple of years ago. It was out of Miami. This was our first time cruising, so I had nothing to compare it to. There were definitely a lot of children on...

I believe we are coming into Toulon. I contacted RCCL and they said we would be at this port. I'm not going to worry about the tickets. Hopefully we'll be able to get them at the station and if...

Thanks so much for the link! I looks like there is an 8:30am train, also. I think our ship gets in at 7:00am, so that would probably be a good train for us to catch.
Thanks for all the information. I was thinking...
Thanks for all the information. I was thinking you could probably just pay on the train, also. I take a commuter train to work in Manhattan and you can always pay on the train (they just charge you...
