7 Night Islands In The Blue (Venice Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 01, 2016
Ship: Costa Mediterranea
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 1209
Traveled As: Family (older children)

The ports of call were very interesting and pleasant. Unfortunately thats where it ends. The food was very salty. The service desks always had long lines. The organization at each disembarkation was substandard, particularly at the end. They did not prioritize for guests who had flights to catch, did not provide for an orderly queueing at the exit, did not intervene when near riots occurred when some guests tried to cut the line. Overall not worth it.

More time was needed here, we just had a half a day. Note other cruise ships have longer time there.
