    For those interested in a Rome restaurant: La Pergola. I was thinking late evening (e.g. 8p) on the 23rd as that is the Orviento day. This restaurant is considered one of the best in Europe. Jacket required. I know @Cousin Orville is interested. Is anyone else? Please get back to me ASAP so I can book. Thanks

    I am currently signed up for Viking’s winery tour but yours sounds smaller and more private which I prefer so Trish and I would be interested.

    On the recommendation of the tour company I am working with I am NOT doing a day to to Florence and Tuscan winery tour out of Rome, rather I am taking the train into Florence and doing a day trip out of Florence. Taking the train instead of driving saves hours of time.

    I've started a conversation regarding the private tour to Ceraudo winery + private lunch at their Michelin star restaurant. We'll have an afternoon activity as well, but it will be up for a vote. Total price is around 120-160 Euros per person. If you're interested and not already in the conversation, let me know.

    @DisVegas, I couldn't invite you to the conversation until your post count is up. You can let me know here.

    Seasoned travelers, is it wise to book a Gondola ride through Viking or hire one once in port? It's so iconic that I consider it a "must do" but I'm wondering if Viking's price is a bit high based on what I've read.

    We spent about 100 Euros for a 40min private gondola ride a couple of years ago. The prices are standardized I think. We had no trouble hiring a gondola in the evening in the summer without a reservation. We got one outside the Doge's palace. That was nice as it sails under the Bridge of Sighs. You can also get one near Rialto to sail the Grand Canal. It really is a special experience.

    Just joined Disboards! Should have done this a while ago when we booked. We are really excited for the trip and with it getting close to booking excursions, thought I should join in on the discussions. So excited!!!

    Sorry pic is sideways and huge ...

    For those in the DV and V categories ... we don't have a dresser for clothes storage.

    I saw this on the Cruise Critic boards and thought it was a great idea.

    I picked this one up at Bed Bath & Beyond for only $11.99 (after 20% coupon)
    It only weighs 3 lbs

    Hi

    Since you have less than 10 posts I can’t message you here.:)

    Could you email me your names and how many in your party? I can then check to see if we can add

    Should have introduced myself first. My name is Steve and i'm traveling with my wife Cathie. Heard about this cruise on the Dis-Unplugged podcast and instantly checked it out. Haven't traveled out of the country much so we will be the confused looking tourist turning around in circles.

    We have been on the Disney Dream and they have staggered boarding on the departure day. Does anyone know when your able to board the ship? I'm still going through the thread so I hope I'm not asking a question that has already been answered.
