Review summary

Being on one of the first Western Mediterranean cruises post pandemic has challenges. Norwegian did an excellent job in making us safe. There was less freedom in Italy to enjoy visit. I am glad we went but need to revisit when the world is more normal

Rapid Covid Test at pier was clunky due to software issues. Staff was cheerful and fellful despite this new requirement.
