Trip Report RHK's Fall escape

Jump to last reply

We embark today on a 5 week trip to Europe culminating with a repositioning cruise from Rome to Miami. The trip has been about a year in the developing, adjusting and finalizing stages.
We are 72 years old and well travelled, avid Fodorites and foodies.
Our trip lays out in the following way:
British Air (cash and Avios pts.) one way Boston to LHR (London). Rental car. Visits with 3 different English friends (two outside London and one in the Midlands) for a week with a final night at a Gatwick hotel. BA flight to Dubrovnik, Croatia (same one way flight which allowed a stop over in UK) where we will meet up with Peter and Linda, our fodorite friends from Hawaii. Four nites in Dubrovnik in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath apartment (Airbnb) overlooking the harbor of Gruz. Overnight ferry (2 staterooms) from Dubrovnik to Bari, Italy. Train to Naples. Two nights at the Naples Renaissance Hotel. Ferry to Capri. Four nights at the Weber Ambassador Hotel (at the suggestion of some Fodorite friends). Ferry back to Naples and train to Rome. Three nights at Little Queen Apartment Hotel, Rome overlooking the ruins of Piazza Argentina (have stayed with them before and it is an excellent location and very comfortable). Bob’s Limo to the Port of Rome (excellent livery service). Fifteen night cruise from Rome to Miami on Celebrity Reflection in a veranda room. American Air (points) flight to Boston. Direct bus Logan to Dover, NH.
Two weeks at home followed by a week in Panama with our whole family to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Followed by two weeks at home and then two weeks in Bangkok, Thailand. Home just before Christmas.
