I can't see renting a car without figuring out WHERE to rent it, and WHERE I wanted to go.   So, this person had to blindly rent a car, not arranging how to pick it up - and no plans on where to visit.  Cuz if they had started looking they may have figured out there is an "oops".

 I guess I don't know a lot about Venice. . mentally I picture Gondolas - but if she rented a car there, then there must be more to it.    HA, I wonder if they rented it from Venice, CA by mistake?   (j/k).

Well, CCL SHOULD pass on information that is not common knowledge like that. LOL

People crack me up and honestly, being OCDV (OCD vacation) like I am, I can't IMAGINE going on a cruise and not having one little clue about the places that I am going. Just boggles my little mind.

I read that one about the tshirt.    It does sound plausible.   But come on. . ..renting a car in Venice is CCL's fault?    Seems JH wasn't clear that Venice was waterways, not paved streets.

LOL!! No, I missed that one. Those notes he posts are too funny and you almost hope he is making them up but know, the way people are nowadays, that his isn't. There was one the other day about a lady who complained about a t-shirt that someone else wore on an excursion-said it was "offensive" and that CCL should monitor what people wear. LOL! It takes all kinds I guess.

Kim, did you see JH's post about the woman complaining as she rented a car in Venice - and was unable to use it due to too much water?   :smileyhappy:

8 months, 3 weeks & 1 day. . .why would you be excited?  LOL.    I'm excited for you.    I remember when you first mentioned this trip - it seemed so far away then.   Now look at it!!   It will be here before you know it.

My estimated London/Paris trip is about 1000 days away.   Seriously.

I have thought a lot about you and Italy lately b/c I am following Carnival cruise lines on FB and their new ship- The Breeze- is sailing overseas right now. One of their ports is someplace where they usually do a day in Rome and I have seen lots of pics from there-one which I swear was taken from exactly the same spot as one of yours. :smileyhappy: You would laugh if you saw all the complaints that people have, b/c they often stop in this port on a Sunday, because they are shocked that the Vatican is closed. People get irate and complain once they are back on ship. Kinda crazy. 

I can't wait to hear about your trip. It's gonna be awesome and such a wonderful learning experience for those girls. What a great opportunity. :smileyhappy:

Well, I would MUCH rather do that then a condo in Cabo. :smileyhappy: 

Of course, I'd do a cruise before I did that even. I still need to hit NCL and Royal Caribbean! LOL
