Guest services would not allow us to withdraw cash we deposited on account without restrictions. Of course, these restrictions were not discussed (written or verbal) when cash was deposited. I deposited the cash. I received a cash receipt with my name on it. Guest services actually indicated only my husband could withdraw. (Again cash receipt with MY name on it.) Some shows were good/some were lame. Food was delicious. Port shuttles overpriced. Take the time to research public transporation options and save money (particularly in Venice). Cruise line does not offer any public transportation information and actually attempted to stop us from proceeding to a public bus in one city.

For only one euro, you can take the "People Mover" from the cruise port to the Piazzale Roma in Venice. At this stop, you can access the water bus (city bus) called the Vaporetto.
Don't Miss: Murano, St. Mark's Square

The steps at the wall will test you if you are overweight, a smoker or elderly. Views, etc. are not to be missed.

Don't Miss: The Duomo, Accademia Museum

Pros: Room attendants, waiters, all service was great

Cons: Alcohol prices. This is the only game in town. Drinks, beers, etc. very high priced.
