HECTIC TOUR OF THE MEITERRANEAN

Sail Date: September 26, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

FIRST TIME CRUISING THE  AREA.  .OUR EXPERIENCE  OF LAND TOUR RATHER  THAN CRUISE IS MORE MEMORABLE AS FAR AS SEEING THE PLACES WE WANTED TO SEE.   MOST OF THE TOURS WERE MORE TIME ON THE BUS THAN ACTUALLY SEEING THE  AREA CHOSEN.   THE LAND TOURS INCLUDED  ENTRANCE FEES TO HIGHLIGHTED AREAS  OF STOPS AND NO  PETTY CHARGES EXAMPLE WATER   WHICH SHOULD BE GIVEN ECH DAY IN THE STATEROOM NOT CHARGED AS YOU ARE LEAVING SHIP FOR TOUR.  THE FOOD ASIDE  FROM THE SPECIALTY RESTUARANTS WAS ACCEPTABLE BUT NOT  GREAT.   THE SHOWS WERE FINE AND AFTERR A BUSY DAY WERE TIMED WELL..   ALL IN  ALL WE HAD A NICE TIME. WE ARE NOT TO DIFFICULT TO PLEASE BUT THE NICKEL AND DIMING ANNOYED US.  

Ship Quality
VERY NICE LOOK AND COMFORTABLE ROOMS AND PUBLIC AREAS
Food and Dining
DID NOT LOVE THE FOOD EXCEPT FOR SPECIALTY RESTUARANTS THEY WERE ALL 3 EXCELLENT
Cabin / Stateroom
NICE BEDS AND BALCONY- SHOWER WS GREAT LOVED THE DOOR
Service and Staff
VERY PLEASANT
Entertainment
GOOD VARIETY OF ENTERTAINMENT AND ACTIVITIES
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
MOST WERE FAIR FANCY BUS RIDE WITH LITTLE TO SEE KOTOR AND DUBRAVNICK-- BUS RIDE TO ROME AND FLORENCE AS ON OUR OWN TOO COSTLY FOR JUST A RIDE
Barcelona, Spain
BEST PORT -STAYED 4 DAYS SHOULD STAY LONGER AS CRUISE TIME SPENT WAS ON OUR ON POST CRUISE
Dubrovnik, Croatia
COMMERCIAL
Venice, Italy
Kotor, Montenegro
Naples, Italy
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
TOO HECTIC 3 HRS BUS TRAVEL AND LITTLE TIME TO SEE ANYTHING MUCH. AND VERY EXPENSIVE
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France

Tip

NEVER FELT AS IF THRE WERE TOO MANY PEOPLE ON BOARD VERY COMFORTABLE SIZE. I THINK THAT A FEATURE PORT SHOULD BE BARCELONA. PEOPLE THAT CAE AND JUST WENT ON SHIP AND LEFT WHEN CRUISE ENDED MISSED THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP.
