"We stayed a few nights in Barcelona before getting onboard. Well worth it. Must sees are La Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, and Casa Mila. Many more things are possible and the people watching is fantastic." - JeannieM
"We stayed at the H10 Metropolitan hotel pre-cruise and the Olivia Balmes hotel post-cruise. Both hotels were phenomenal! The service at both hotels was unmatched and exceptionally clean! The H10 Metropolitan hotel was a little more centrally located for us. We also did the Hop-on, Hop-off bus tour of Barcelona. Great value and a lot of fun!" - islandcruiser14
"Beautiful city - take in Sagrada Familia - incredbile." - Aprguy

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy Arrives at 7:00am - Sep 01, 2017, Departs at 7:00pm - Sep 01, 2017

"We walked to the train and got off near Vatican City. Went to the Forum, the Colosseum, and Trevi Fountain. So great to see these awesome places!" - islandcruiser14
"Beautiful and we were lucky enough to be there on Sunday so we got to see Pope! A lot of history a must for anyone who loves history" - 4kstarr
"We departed from this port and if your departing from here stay in Hotel Traghetto less than a 2 minute walk to where the buses leave from to bring you to the check in terminal. The train to Rome is very very cheap ensure you get your train ticket stamped before getting on and it takes just under an hour to get to Roma termini also the port offers a bus to train station for a couple of euro highly recommend as the walk is doable approx 15-20mins but with luggage and the warm weather when we were there this was well worth it. Civitavecchia has a few nice restaurants and is nice for a stroll around but not much to actually do." - Olivia101

Salerno (Naples), Italy Arrives at 7:00am - Sep 02, 2017, Departs at 6:30pm - Sep 02, 2017

"We took the local ferry (Travel Mar) to Amalfi. It was a perfect day and a beautiful place." - RCFan
"I didn't see the port, but the excursions in this region are amazing. I've done both Pompeii and Herculaneum. Pompeii is massive (and very little shade!), but a must-see. Herculaneum is a much more contained site and they're actually re-building some of the ancient structures there to help you visualize what they would've looked like 2,000 years ago. Both are impressive. " - MplsBuck
"Pompeii by Taxi is only 20 minutes away at a round trip cost of approx. 25 Euro per person" - 007CRUISER

"Stay away from the crowds. Go to a deli, get some meat, cheese, wine and sit along one of the canals to watch the crowd and not be part of it." - kbombard
"Very picturesque. A photographer's dream. No need for shore excursion at this port. Walk 15 mins to the public water taxis at Piazzale Roma from the ship and take Vaporetto #1 to St. Marks Square. A 20 euro day pass allows you to jump on and off Vaporettos all day." - Tired

Kotor, Montenegro Arrives at 11:00am - Sep 07, 2017, Departs at 7:00pm - Sep 07, 2017

"It's worth waking up early to view the scenery on the way into the port" - Beefysmum
"As in other stops we did the Hop-On, Hop-Off bus tours, and as in other cases you have to keep in mind that each Hop-Off eats into the time before you have to return to the ship, particularly in cases like this where you are tendered in. Kotor is worth the visit. Multiple towns along a long coast and backed up against spectacular mountains." - roywinters6
"Wow...just such a beautiful place. Make sure to get up early so that you can see the scenery as you cruise down the fjord to get to Kotor. Also, dont forget to stop and try the "Black Wine" yum" - CruzinRichie
