10 Night Mediterranean Enchantment (Rome Roundtrip)

Sail Date: June 28, 2009

Ship: Noordam

Cabin Type: Balcony

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Review Summary

Being in our early 30's we thought we would be outnumbered by a lot of older folks. We were, however there were plenty of younger partiers on the ship which made it energetic and fun. The food was awesome and the ship itself was pristine. The balcony staterooms were large and spotless. Do listen to people on here complaining about the food. They are just being grumpy and should stay home next time.

Ports Of Call

Barcelona, Spain

3 out of 5
Very nice but overwhelmingly big and expensive

Naples, Italy

3 out of 5
Very crowded and pretty dirty. The locals are not very friendly like the other areas
Don't Miss: Pompei

Palermo, Sicily

5 out of 5
The best food you will ever have
Don't Miss: Walking thru the alleyways and eating all the fresh fruits and olives

La Goulette (Tunis & Carthage), Tunisia

1 out of 5
It's a third world country
Don't Miss: Seeing the ruins of Carthage is unbelievable. Also go to the WWII American cemetary

Monte Carlo, Monaco

5 out of 5
This is the most unbelievable place I have ever seen. The pure wealth and design of the city will blow you away. Pictures do not justify.
Don't Miss: Walking around is plenty good

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands

5 out of 5
Was not expecting much of Mallorca, but it was a beuatiful beach city mixing new and old shipping and buildings

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

5 out of 5
Very romantic
Don't Miss: Venture out to the Tuscany region

Pros: Destinations, ship amenities, food, staff

Cons: Excursions are expensive and target older demographic. On board activities were ok but not great

Recommends Noordam? Yes!
