My wife and I are arriving in Europe a day earlier than our cruise. To make everything easier we thought we'd stay at a hotel at the airport and take one of the cruise transfers the next day. However, our agent told us the cruiseline would only furnish transfers for passengers whose flights arrive on the day of the cruise. My agent advised me to tell the cruiseline we will be arriving on the day of the cruise and give the cruise line a flight number of a flight arriving on that day. Apparently, the cruiselines do not check flight manifesto's. But wait, we are told that we have to meet the people arranging the transfer at the baggage claim. I know nothing about Rome airport, but I assume this would nix the whole process. Does anyone have any other suggestions or am I stuck finding alternative transporation to the port?
