12 Night Mediterranean & Greek Isles (Rome Roundtrip) Sail Date: June 15, 2008 Ship: Carnival Freedom Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Family (older children) Reviewed: 7 years ago
Ship is huge and beautiful ! My room steward & personal restaurant staff including the assistant bar waitress from Crotia was the best. Every person we spoke with, spoke perfect english. Personel were always smiling & happy.
We did highlights & catacombs tour, very crowded alot of walking and again very long drive. Still was nice. I wish we would have been allowed to stay down in the Catacombs longer. Only did outside of Coleseum but it was still awesome. Be careful everywhere, my son 16 yr got ripped off twice from vendors selling cola and powerade. Both times he was charged 5 euros & they refused to give him change. Our tour guide was willing to go back, but it was quite a hike back..so be carefull.
Turkish people are the best, not what I expected. Very kind. Worst part lines to pay for bathroom & receive one sheet of toilet paper. Bring a roll of paper from the ship. This goes for all ports.
Don't Miss: Blue Mosque
To start with all port buses were great, but Florence bus and no leg room on the left side. So sit on the right. Very long drive. This was the most crowded place of all-it was nuts, picture Time Square on New Yrs Eve.
