  1. Just wondering if people are making upcoming final payments considering the cruise could end up being cancelled? If I have a non refundable deposit, then I don't think I can cancel and get a refund if I have a concern about the cruise being eventually cancelled. But it just seems odd or unwise to pay the final payment if it's likely to get cancelled. So wondering what others are doing regarding their final payment? Thanks so much for your information.

  8. Will be sailing on the Jewel of the Seas out of Civitavecchia Cruise Terminal and I have a few questions regarding disembarkation and transfers to FCO airport. 1. In general, what time does disembarkation begin? Specifically looking to do the early morning walk off with baggage option, and was wondering what time are passengers doing the walk off generally able to disembark? 2. What transfers, or transfer companies recommended for Civitavecchia Cruise Terminal to FCO airport? 3. From where the Jewel of the Seas docks at Civitavecchia Cruise Terminal, how far away are the transfer vehicles located? Are they located on the pier, just by the ship, easy to find? etc. Thank for all information, advice, and recommendations. Appreciate your help and support.
  9. If I hire a private transfer pick up in Civitavecchia Port and disembarking off Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas, how far from the ship are the transfer cars located? Will there be a long walk, are they difficult to find, etc. Also, any recommended transfer companies from the Port to FCO airport are appreciated. Thanks for all information.
  10. What is the best or recommended transportation from Civitavecchia Port to FCO airport? Planning to get off ship as early as we can, plan to take advantage of walk off ship with baggage. Appreciate all information, advice and recommendations? Thank you.
  11. If taking a train from Rome to Civitavecchia train station, how readily available are taxi to take to the cruise ship? Thanks.
  12. Interested in spending a few nights in Rome prior to cruise out of Civitavecchia. Planning to arrive Civitavecchia the afternoon before the cruise. I see that there are a variety of train options from Rome Termini to Civitavecchia, but need a train with adequate space for luggage. We won't be traveling with a lot of luggage, probably just one regular size checked luggage and a carry on. But some trains according to some YouTube videos seem to have limited space for luggage which seems odd. Any suggestions, recommendations, and advice? Thanks!
