The staff of this ship were OUTSTANDING! They even gave us a private anniversary part in our room (champange, chocolate covered strawberries, cake, balloons, and other decorations) for FREE!!

Pisa and Lucca were great. Our local tour guide in Pisa however was terrible, but the tour guide for Lucca made up for it.
Don't Miss: The leaning tower of Pisa

Sorrento and Pompeii were AMAZING! Others on the boat said they were disappointed with the actual city of Naples, so I was glad we chose a different excursion.
Don't Miss: Pompeii

I was disappointed with this port...the tour guide we got was awful...maybe that's why I didn't enjoy it.
Don't Miss: The views are amazing!
5 out of 5
Definitely worth getting off the boat.
Don't Miss: Mdina

Pros: Literally, EVERYTHING

Cons: didn't always keep the kids out of the 'adults only' pool -- that's my only complaint!

Recommends Norwegian Gem? Yes!
