June 2015 - Allure of the Seas to Europe - Western Mediterranean
This ship is the largest passenger vessel on the ocean today. This is obvious as since there were so many stops on this 7-day trip (only 1 day at sea), that we did not see 1/2 of the ships amenities. Ship is truly beautiful with many venues that keep even the most active person busy for 7 full days. Shore excursions were overpriced but you don't have much choice as ports in the Med are far from anything you might want to see.
Rome is amazing - even if you are not Catholic, the mosaic's and statues in the Basilica are not to be missed. Florence is the place to go for leather bags and Naples for the food...... everywhere has great table wine as well as some noteworthy bottles. This is a definite for cruisers, foodies, or wine connoisseurs.
