A beautiful experience 24/7 I travelled with my daughter 9, son 10, and my husband we all had a great time. One bit of advice is to look on line and booked your own private shore excursions for 1/2 the price. Use the hop on hope off bus in Naples, croatia is beautiful take the ferry to the island, Loverno please take a taxi to florence and piza the train is 11/2 hours and you would have to take a bus and a shuttle bus after that -- cost 30 euros each taxi 50 euros each. Book the ships shuttle bus in vience it is a long wak to to the water taxi. Take the water taxi to St. Marks and walk back to the ship (just stay one block in from the water). Cannes France -- unreal and beautiful. Do not take the ferry to Mar. Island waste of time. On this cruise there is no late night partying. Get off the ship early 7am (the camp is open 6:45) Everyone is so tired after long days of sightseeing they basically have dinner a drink or two a little casino and bed. by 10pm ship is very quiet if you are out late you will never get to see anything in the ports. The ship excursions are a waste of time you pay double and only get to see one thing they are very time consuming. Read the excursions they offer and book your own online for 1/2 the price. I have been on may cruises and this was a dream trip. Loved every minute of it.
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR SMALL RECEIPTS AROUND THEY HAVE YOUR 4 DIGIT NO. ON IT WHICH ALLOWS ANYONE ON THE SHIP TO REVIEW YOUR ACCOUNT. MY HUSBAND RETURNED TO THE ROOM AND FOUND OUT ROOM STEWARD ON THE TV REVIEWING OUR STATEROOM ACCOUNT.
Pros: 24/7 VIEWS WHILE AT SEA
Cons: LIMITED TIME IN FLORENCE AND PIZE PORT VERY FAR
