Disappointed -- Changes to Itinerary

Sail Date: September 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

The ship is nice, but the change to planned ports was not acceptable. Especially the last minute cancellation of the stop in Naples, Italy where we planned to see Pompeii and Sorrento. RCL substituted an alternate stop at Malta, however, this was scheduled for a Sunday when all of the town shops are closed in Malta. There was nothing open to see or do.

Pros: Cabin was spacious and food was very good. Ship areas were easy to access.

Cons: RCL made changes to two of the planned ports. Eqypt and Naples, Italy were cancelled.
