Glad to see that we'll be on the same trip. I am travelling solo, I booked on my own the hotels and the flights, since I have a free intl airfare ticket. I'll be staying at Camelia hotel ( not very expensive and close to Termini train station), 3 nights before the cruise and I booked Hilton for 1 night, since my flight from Rome is at 6:15 am ( I am from CA, what about you ?).
Did you like Hilton hotel ? I understand that I can walk to the airport gate, did you do that ?
From Camelia hotel I am planning to take the train to Civitavecchia, then, just walk to the port entrance.
What about you, did you book everything through Carnival ?
Based on Carnival info it seems that I can use my personal cell phone, did you do that ? It is not clear from Carnival info if stateroom ( the cheapest ) has a hair dryer or do you know ? It is my first time on a cruise but have been to several European tours, including Italy.
Speaking about the excursions:
Italy: - to take the one which goes to Amalfi town ( visited Capri island on previous trip) or Positano, I am not sure which one it will be offerred.
- the one going to Sienna ( visited Florence already)
Turkey: still searching for the best money and views( Grand Bazaar is a must )
Greece: Athens, still searching
How many in your party? It will be great to keep in touch.
