Excellent cruise. Not for first time cruisers. Up early every day to explore the great ports. Rome in July is really crowded, keep that in mind. Amalfi coast is spectacular. Monaco a big positive surprise. Spend extra days in Barcelona, such a FANTASTIC city, we spent 6 extra days there and LOVED it. Food on cruise was ok, not great.
