Review summary

Overall the descriptions of the excursions were accurate and we picked very active cruise. I think some people did not understand the extent of the physical requirements and therefore held up the group.

Onboard Activities

If you had a 8 pm dining time, you missed many of the 9 pm activities - the main show was repeated but not very impressed. Also same shows were repeated if you stayed on the ship more than one week

Rushed through Pisa and too early for the church and museum to be opening fid not know they would need additional tickets

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

Thought the local guide picked up was awesome- she was like a story teller that transported you back to that time period

The description of the walk at the botanical gardens was insufficient and should have explained walking on dirt gravel and rocks. It did say wear comfortable shoes it did not give the right info of why. We had to turn back because shoes were comfortable but not for going up and down gravel dirt paths without risking a fall
