Italy

When I was younger, I had the good fortune to spend six weeks traveling throughout Italy with my family. Having been up and down the ‘boot’ and visiting most places, I’m familiar with many parts of this country. I can tell you that after you eat real Italian food, you’ll never care to eat at Olive Garden again, and fast food pizza will never taste the same.

The marvel of the art and architecture in Italy are beyond compare. The hardest decision you should have is which port of call will be your embarkation point. From there, planning to arrive as many days prior to sailing as you can is highly recommended.

But I will address a few other types of tips further on, like tipping porters so read on.

Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas
Cruising - Royal Caribbean

Anthem Of The Seas

The Anthem of the Seas is a beautiful Quantum Class ship. The ship has a newer and more modern feel to her, compared to ships in the other classes. Features such as the Bionic Bar and Two70 accentuate this modern feel. The line, the decor and the theme overall seems to lend to this. It’s a departure from the more nautical feel on the Radiance Class ships, or the super sized elegance of the Oasis Class ships. That’s one of the wonderful things about Royal Caribbean really, since the company strives to create new adventures in each class and ship. Bravo and well done RCI!

Lounge Chair Hogs

One of the most frustrating issues for cruisers is the issue of lounge chair hogs. Everyone wants a great spot by the pool, when they are close to the pool, the bar, and the sun. Unfortunately, many cruisers get up early and go place towels and sometimes personal belongings on the loungers in order to make them appear to be in use. However the simple truth is, that after depositing towels and other sundries onto the loungers, many people don’t show back up for hours at a time.

Where To Dine

The question of where to dine has always been important to anyone on vacation. Meals help to make traveling experiences more memorable. There are two camps; those who will eat local foods and those who won’t. Before I dive down the rabbit hole with my personal views regarding dining away from home, I’ll simply say it’s your vacation. Do as you like. However having said that, I simply must also say, when in Rome do as the Roman do.

Europe by River

Visiting Europe by river is an amazing experience that you don’t want to miss. As you cruise along the river, every new bend contains stunning vistas. Breathtaking scenery and dramatic castles overlook the shores. While the ships that cruise these waterways are vastly different than their ocean sailing cousins, it’s worth it. The ships are much smaller and have minimal amenities. The goal of river cruising in Europe is cultural immersion at a slower pace. Christmas river cruises are extremely popular and are a once in a lifetime vacation. If you are ready to try a river cruise let us know. We would be happy to help you plan.
