Re: When in Rome...

Hi

Surfermom, if you do ever come to the UK you will find our Security very different.

It is very laid back and unobtrusive, very different to the USA and others.

The nature of my job was such that I am a person of interest.

My passport is flagged.

There is so much metal in me I set off every alarm.

In most Countries, I sail through, they check the flag, a good guy.

Nothing is too much trouble for them then.

Your Border Security in the USA is a nightmare, a paranoid set of idiots.

Re: When in Rome...

I admit to feeling like a an excited school girl about to leave for Europe. It's been months in planning, but I am ready to take everything as it comes. You all have heard me say that a holiday becomes an adventure the first moment something goes wrong, so adventure is what I am expecting. I am most excited introducing my well-deserving and healthy daughter the world!

I appreciate all very helpful suggestions and kindnesses.

Though I am late to cruising, your input helped with the decision to go with this ship and its itineary

If you have 16 minutes to kill:



I will reciprocate (when I have internet) with all of the great photos you all have shared.

See you all in late August!

Re: When in Rome...

Hi Surfermom....you will love Azamara I have sailed on Quest before and on Journey both lovely ships I believe they have just purchased P&O Adonia too the smallest of the P&O fleet.....I'm in Rome 31st Aug but just on my way to Civitavecchia...then moving onto Greece and the Dalmation coast.

You will have a lovely time it's difficult not to on Azamara ...take advantage of the port lectures on board the speakers are experts on what to see and the history of the places on the tour....have fun!


Oops...I just checked and actually Azamarza Pursuit is in fact what used to be P&O Adonia...a lovely ship you will love it

Re: When in Rome...

I'm amazed I missed this thread, and I didn't even know Surfermom was in Italy.
I went there numerous times on detachment with the RAF, staying in a town called Pordenone near the Aviano U.S. Air Base. Venice was just 40 miles away and I was there almost every day collecting and despatching AWACS spares.
We had visits to verona, the Dolomites often and Lido de Jesolo.
Love the place.
Hope you're having a great time Surfermom
