I had some problems with my credit card, but it'll be ok in two or three days.


If problems persist, please let me know.

Trip is booked for two persons :-) I don't know if Anne (My partners name) is joining for more activities. I think she is going with the flow :-)

wow, "passengers must be present for embarkation at least 1.5 hours before departure time" - since the ferry leaves at 6:30 in the morning, that means we have to be at Valetta harbour at 5? what an early morning... do buses even go that early from Sliema? or does the ferry leave somewhere else?

I think we could share a taxi, as mentioned in ewri's message. That would probably be the easiest.

Hello all..
With regards to the trip to Sicily, I got the idea of getting the same mini van that we will be using on Saturday. I will ask him for a quote tomorrow and let you know.
