The ports of calls at the Carnival Magicship were great. All the beautiful places we visited in Europe were amazing. Starting in Livorno-Florence, Rome, Naples, Sicily, Palma de Majorca and Marseille. We booked our excursions with Carnival and all the places were great, except for I wish they had more excursion to go the beaches. But overall they were great!!!

We went to see Mt. Etna in Sicily, You spent more time in the bus than in the actual site of Mt. Etna.
