Best cruise ever. Love. Lots of places to see and do. The ports that we toured were amazing. Excursion tours in every port with a variety of minimum city tours to full day tours. Never been in the Western Mediterranean. Food were amazing. Historical areas are still in tact from centuries past. the Ship provided your hotel and majority of the your dining. Ship does not feel like we were in the water. Incredible themes in almost every floor. A Central Park and a Boardwalk was extra to most regular ship. Dreamworks characters was great for the ship. None stop activities if you can last.  Can't wait for the next cruise in the Eastern Mediterranean. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Had children next door was not good with all the noise. It was a connecting cabin so we can hear them clearly.

Barcelona, Spain
Be ready to explore the city. Hop on Hop off bus is pretty good for just going around the city. the Metro is pretty good to get around.
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Its an Island but not enough time to do everything. Hop on Hop off bus is pretty good for just going around the city
Marseille (Provence), France
The train tour is cheaper 1/2 the price of the Hop on Hop off bus.
La Spezia, Italy
Need more time if climbing up Pisa Tower. need to purchase ticket prior to lining up to go to the top of leaning tower.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Need more than a day to see Rome. Lines are long at Coliseum and Vatican.
Naples, Italy
After Pom pei need to drive the Amalfi Coast line.


Make sure you bring extra clothes for activities until your main luggage arrives. Make every effort to look at the activities schedules and reserve all shows ahead of time. Reserve dining facility ahead of time.
