Traveled As: Couple
Room Type: Suite
Suite with Butler Service good way to go, that way you can
Have full dinner (from Main restaurant) served in the
Comfort of your room after a tiring day of touring. Butler can also
Set up a romantic Anniversary dinner in room with lobster and complimentary
Champaign. Book Day At Sea Spa treatments as soon as you arrive. (they fill up quick) Bring Bartender Michael some new playing cards. He does amazing tricks at the bar but his cards are getting old. Have fun.
Can board boat 8-9 hours prior to departure. (web site says 3 hours)
Bringing a bottle of wine from port on ship in back pack was not a
Problem. (not paying 25$ cork fee) Olympic restaurant cost increased to 30$.
Definitely worth extra cost early in cruise (few guests, lots of extra attention)
If you want to provide extra tip on bar drinks do it with cash instead of adding it
To sales receipt. (person serving you gets less the 2% of your tip) Capri is not
Worth the 50 minute boat ride there (with people getting sick from motion), the
40 minutes jamming into train, and the 30 minute boat ride to Sorrento.
Pompeii is worth a trip all by itself, amazing. Recommend getting a car and
Driver on your own (internet) in Rome and Florence. This lets you see more,
With less crowds, personalized information (hard to understand/hear tour guides), And you control what you do. With most services the driver can provide you with Lots of information on what youre seeing. Book driver pickup 1.5 hours after ship Arrival time.
