There should be a notice for the shore excursions that include a portion in boat, like the one to cinque terre, saying that it will be subject to tide conditions and also information on what is the alternative should that be the case.

We booked an outside excursion to Florence and Pisa. Returning traffic from Pisa was awful--took an extra 1 1/2 hrs to get back to the ship

It is a two hour drive to Florence giving you little time to see anything in depth. The Accademia is amazing and we wish there'd been time to go into the Duomo, but the lines were too long and we had to get back to the ship. Tuscany in my Pocket tour with Guido was pure joy and we learned so much about Tuscany and Florence from our wonderful guide. He also has been doing this for so long that we didn't have to wait to get in anywhere.

We did a half day excursion to Pisa. Didn’t have much time but we got our photos with the tower & grabbed a gelato on the way back to the bus. There definitely wouldn’t have been enough time to go into the tower but we hadn’t planned on doing that anyway.

Took a shore excursion but wish I had taken this as a day for rest an enjoyment on the ship instead.

enjoyed our Pisa tour but wasn't happy that we had to stay two nights here. Nothing is opened on ship when in port.

We were surprised with the beautiful old city and picturesque gardens and harbourfront. Ship ports right in town however you do need the free provided shuttle bus to get out of the Industrial port. We enjoyed Cinque Terre tour with private operator, lot of walking not suitable for all.

Did the Cinque Terre tour and it was fine. The guide did not appear trained to provide historical information, but was a good escort. Great lunch in a seaside restaurant
