DO NOT take a ship tour. Rushed, no time to experience any of the Vatican or Rome. Poor quality lunch. Better to get atour from the port through a local, or take the train into Rome and do it yourself

Pompii is a must. Mocate a local cab diver to show you the city. Much cheaper than the tours and a better experiebce

Nothing but a big market for the Brits.
5 out of 5
Tour it yourself.. great exercise, super small sites to see

Pros: Great food, super service on board

Cons: 15% gratuity added to all drinks, pricing of a glass of wine ( poor quality)-this company needs to get a better wine stewart to select the wine... very mediocre and extremely high priced.

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!
