Took the Taormina & Greek Theatre Tour. My favorite tour so far. However, there was not much time to spend shopping or to sit and sip coffee.
Don't Miss: Views from Taormina

Took the City Sightseeing Tour. No time to shop and experience the city of Palma.
Don't Miss: La Seo

Took the Angels and Demons Tour. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Her English was understandable and engaging. I wish Carnival stayed overnight here instead of Venice. The lunch that was provided on this tour was fixed and there were no choices/menu.

Took the St. Mark's Experience. I did not enjoy this at all. The tour guides were not as engaging. I suggest to experience Venice on your own and skip the shore excursion given that the ship is docked overnight.
Don't Miss: St. Mark's, Gelato, Coffee

Not much to see in Marseille at this point due to the ongoing renovations around the city. Dirty surroundings.
Don't Miss: Cathdrale de la Major

Carnival's "Best of Genoa" shore excursion is just ok. The focaccia and wine were served while visiting the Palazzo Rosso. However, the wine was served on plastic cups not on a "glass" as described on Carnival's website.
Don't Miss: Pesto, Focaccia

Took the Taste of Sorrento & Pompeii Tour.
Don't Miss: Olive Oil, Handmade Mozzarella and Ricotta Cheese

Pros: John Heald (Cruise Director), Main Dining Room Service
