Question - does anyone think not being in the LS will be an issue when on a cruise? We have been to Hedo on the nude side (and loved the week there) and definitely enjoy a nude beach so being in this setting isn't a problem but wonder if we'll be bored with a lack of other activities. I wouldn't think so, but it doesn't look like there are a lot of other activities besides the pool (love the pool), some of the workshops, and the disco. Thoughts?


Valid question as we had those thoughts as well before our first lifestyle cruise. After 12 lifestyle cruises, we can safely say that not being in the lifestyle will not present any kind of problems. The only problem would be if you didn't tell others interested in you early on that you are not in the lifestyle and they spend time thinking you are in hopes of getting with you. So be honest with your boundaries and convey them during the discussions. To most, it won't matter as many couples are friendly and will just chat with you.

As far as a smaller ship and activities, keep in mind that most days (if not all) are port days so a lot of daytime is spent off ship. The evenings go fast with dinner, theme nights, entertainment and just socializing on board.

We've had 3 cruises on the Azamara Lines and have 2 more booked. After doing the larger ships, Azamara hits the spot for us.

Still trying to decide what we're going to do and the times would help us determine what elese we can wrap into the same trip if we pull the trigger. Even knowing it will be morning / mid-day / night would be helpful if anyone has an idea. Can't find this info on the site.

Thanks!


Dont have specifics for this cruise but typically arrival is late morning to mid afternoon with a 5 or 6pm departure. Arrivals tend to be early morning. They have a 5pm departure from Rome the day we pull in so guessing 5-6am arrival with a 7ish disembark.

We're booked on the Venice -Rome cruise, twice at desire Pearl so far and will be our first cruise of any sort!

Thinking of going to Venice a couple of days earlier and staying in Rome a couple of nights after. Any advice from anyone for picking up the ship and for the night before? Is there normally a meet and greet at a venue/hotel?

Nothing like planning ahead.....we're at Pearl in 5 weeks so will enjoy that first and then concentrate on Venice but any tips or ideas will be very welcome.

My Fiance and I are thinking of doing this cruise as part of our honeymoon. We get married in early May and we loved our time at Pearl a couple years back. We are thinking of doing the cruise as part of a greater European Trip that includes timein Portugal, Spain and France. The only question is would it be better to do the cruise at the begining, or save it for the end of the trip? anyone else tacking on a few other destinations to the cruise? would love to meet up with some people! Also, we are both 31 years old. Not that it matters, but do you generally see people our age at this particular cruise? We found Pearl to have a nice mix of age groups.



hey there,
This is anes and babu from singapore, this is our first cruise, but we have been to desire many times. Hope to catch up . Our best wishes for your marriage and honey moon

Ok We booked our room! This will be our first cruise every and the will take up about 1/3 of our honeymoon.We will be flying in to Venice from Ibiza the day before, but won't get in until 6 or 7 PM. Anyone have any idea on when/where a potential meet and greet might take place? Looking to book a spot in Chiogga. Also taking any hotel suggestions. Can't wait to mingle with you all! :D

P.S. - anyone else taking some extended time in Rome?

hello, congrats on booking your room. Looking forward to meeting you both. We will arrive in venice on the 16th of may . We can catch up for dinner on the 17th of may. Are you planning to stay in venice or chiogga ? We will be staying in Rome for 3 nights after the cruise . With respect to hotels we just started to do our homework we will keep you posted. I am not sure if meet and greet will be organised by Desire.

Have not heard anything on a meet and greet but my guess is they would do Venice since its a bigger city than Chioggia. Getting to Chioggia is an hour to 2 hour trex depending on how you go. We are staying in Venice proper for a few nights and then wednesday have a B&B in Chioggia. All the hotels close to port were sold out or very busy and was looking to walk on instead of cab over.

We are staying a few days in Rome. Have not booked it yet but probably try to stay at the Le Meridien again.

We're all booked up now, a couple of nights at the B&B Hotel Chioggia Airone, not far from the port. We intend to grab a day checking in Venice itself and then after we have a day or two booked in Rome at the Bloom Appartment by La griffe.

Not much information yet regarding the arrangements? Things such as Theme nights and a Meet and greet seem in short supply...need to get planning those costumes ;)

Agreed. Someone on the cruise FB page said to expect them out about 3 months before so hopefully by March we will have something.
