Bryant - Answered a Question by Bates (22 Jun 08 20:02)

I've done the Med Discovery cruise so can comment only on the ports which are the same!Villefranche and Mahon are easy to do yourselves. Tender boats take you to the pretty town of Villefranche- you can wander around the steep narrow streets, take the little tourist train around the town or catch the mainline train to Nice or Monaco. The ship berths at Mahon and you walk up some steep steps that lead you to the town centre. We did the Rome on your own option which meant we were taken to the city given a map and some information and shown the pick up point. Many people catch the train from Civitavecchia which is a cheaper option. Hope this helps!

I would also like to know if it is easy to get to the train station to get into Rome and how much likely to cost by taxi compared to "rome alone" tour which seems quite expensive. I want to go into the Jewish Ghetto area and am cruising 11-25 October so if anyone also wants to go to this area which I believe is very near the Vatican etc., then perhaps we can share a taxi?? I can be contacted on rosmorris57@hotmail.com - thanks.

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...

He Cannot Be Serious...

Well the day has come and gone. As you know from my previous blog the big day has come and gone. And Im officially 40! Do I feel any different? Not at the moment but lets see if this whole ‘life begins’ is true…..On a more serious note I couldnt believe the news I read that disgraced ‘Captain Coward’ Francesco Schettino made a statement saying after arrival at his jail cell – he would cope with jail and start by going back to being a ‘ship boy’ ...
