Review summary

Service was good and staff were very attentive. A special thanks to our restaurant waiter who was brilliant. We would recommend taking all meals in the restaurant (hot and cold self-serve buffet at breakfast) as the buffet restaurant was very busy and the tables always appeared nearly full. Get up early to reserve a sun lounger as they are all quickly taken

Always crowded and no way of knowing which tours were sold out so a long wait to no avail. Touch screen machines allowed you to book but these were not pointed out until I complained that I had waited half an hour to no avail. In any case either the machines were out of service with an error message or the error message showed when the tours were sold out without stating this

Cable car ride a must. Check holiday insurance before going down in the wicker baskets

Malaga, Spain

4 out of 5
Carriage ride very enjoyable. PIcasso's house ordinary but Cathedral worth a visit

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

4 out of 5
Moastly known as the port for Rome but if you have visited Rome before and don't want the 3 hour return journey, Civitavecchia is a nice town to walk around

Savona (Genoa), Italy

5 out of 5
Bridge collapse in Genoa restricted visits outside Genoa but again the town was worth a walking visit
