You were lucky! All of ours have been updated except for Mykonos. It still has us down for Athens City Sights. I’m wondering if there’s a problem with the tour operator being booked up on the new date.

I was afraid to cancel and rebook because we took advantage of a price drop. Everything has been straightened out now and we’re good. My understanding is they changed the schedule because to many ships were in port on the original dates and the new dates have fewer ships in port and work better, less crowded, for us.

There will be 2 formal nights and a “white night”. Those are the only ones I know for sure.

This has possibly already been asked but does anyone know the themed nights? I’m assuming there’ll be at least 1 formal night and hopefully a themed party night too :)

just got emails yesterday about itinerary changes, our Royal Excursions were updated automatically. 64 days! Yikes!

Hi Bonnie Ruth. We have had the same experience regarding the itinerary change. The tours for Rhodes and Athens are still showing wrong on the site. We cancelled our tours originally booked and tried to book new over the phone. For Athens, now they are only offering 2 tours, 1 private bus @ $2k and a private car $1k per person !! Not taking either. Looks like we will wing it until we get on board the ship and see if they update anything. Totally understand that when they reschedule a cruise, that these tour operators probably have other bookings for those days with other ships etc. Just a bit disappointing for first time in this region and this brand of cruise line. I am looking at that comment about hopping on a bus or will research Viator.

Did you see my post about Rome Shuttle Limousine? I posted it in the general before I realized I could post directly to you.

About a month ago, Royal changed the itinerary for this cruise, but the excursions didn’t match up with the ports. Example: on the 30th we are stopping in Athens, but our excursion is still for Ancient Delos which is on Mykonos. On the 3rd we stop in Santorini but our excursion still says Athens City Lights. Does anyone else have this problem? I’ve called twice to try to get it straightened out and was told they would expedite my problem, but still no solution.

jcsandra, we’re using Rome Shuttle Limosine. They have excellent reviews and for the 5 of us with all our luggage and a wheelchair, it’s only €145.00. They were very responsive to our questions and responded quickly and in perfect English. Their web address is www.romeshuttleservice.com I hope this helps.

Hello fellow cruisers, has anyone dealt with a trustworthy shuttle agency to get to the Port & Airport upon return?

Traveler005 We're staying in Rome for 4 days before the cruise, but we're in a VRBO apartment in Monte Verde. There are 5 of us and we got a 3 bedroom apartment.
