3 out of 5

cruise was good

Sail Date: June 08, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The cruise itself was nice, I got to see the Pyramids, but it is not a good cruise for English Speakers, as most of the passengers are european it is catered more to them, NO english activities---but overall i enjoyed the cruise

Pros: saw the pyramids

Cons: things to rushed and very few things to do for english speakers, mostly italians on the ship and it was not great for americans

Recommends Costa Europa (RETIRED)? No.

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Another good Greek City stop along the way----take a tour---dont do cabs or walking
Limassol, Cyprus
it was an okay port----nothing special

Rhodes, Greece
Best stop on the trip next to the Pyramids-----dont take a tour----hire a cab for the day and go to Lindos and see the rest of the Island......cheaper, better, and really nice !!!
Don't Miss: Go to Lindos
Naples, Italy
lots of pickpockets around the area---be careful.....nothing great in walking distance from ship......need to take a tour if you want to see anything
Alexandria (Cairo), Egypt
Nice !! the trip to the Pyramids was great.....did the pyramid and nile river cruise excursion----be careful nile river cruise lunch---lots of people got sick after eating----i didnt thank goodness.......Cairo was a dirty city---do NOT buy Papyrus at the shop they take you to.....prices are jacked up--200-500%......go to out of the way shops, lots better deals...
Don't Miss: The Pyramids-----but look out for merchants
