We did Pisa by train. Across the road where the shuttle bus drops of there is a tobbaconist with a sign outside saying "tickets for Pisa". They speak English and you need bus tickets to get to station and train tickets. For Rome walk about 10mins from shuttle bus drop off to train station. Train tickets to Rome are 9euro return which includes bus/subway in Rome. There is a stop at St Peters before central Rome. There are two trains an hour and it takes around 50mins to St Peters and another 15mins to centre.

We shared a taxi with two others he waited the 2 hours we spent at Pisa - too crowded - and many pick pockets.

For monte carlo walk a few mins from the tender drop off to the train station. it takes less than 30mins. sorry i cannot remember the exact time or price since it's been a few years since we done it, but it wasn't that pricey. we hope to do it again this sept.

Catch the train to Rome and you can take the Rome sightseeing bus which is 'hop on hop off'It's about 15euros if I remember rightly.If you want to see the Vatican there are usually long queues.Don't know if you can book tickets on line. We did that on an organised trip but the second visit we were braver and caught the train and the bus.

Friends of mine took a taxi to Pisa and it cost them 120 euros between them and the driver waited for them whilst they looked around the various buildings, etc and he took them straight back to the ship after their visit. Hope that this is of some help to you.

I did it!!!

By Lisa West

Last weekend I completed in the London Moonwalk – what an amazing but very emotional experience. Our group The Girls from the Ditch meet at 5pm where we had arranged for a mini bus to take us all down to London. We had to be in Clapham Common for 9pm so we had plenty of time to get down there. The day didnt quite go to plan for my sister who was joining me on the walk, her Grandson decided to come 2 weeks early and arrived at 2.30 in the afternoon, so after being up since 4.30 Sa...

NCL All Inclusive Drinks&Tips ...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

 Recently NCL announced that their Ultimate Drinks Package & prepaid gratuities were now mandatory in all of their sailings. At first glance this would seem to be a good idea. After all, I can’t tell you how many enquiries I get on a daily basis, asking if a drinks package is included. Rightly so, as your bar bill is usually the most expensive item on your cruise bill!So there has been a definite trend towards passengers preferring a total cruise fare with an all inclusive d...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

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...
