I wish we had more time to take more than one excursion in a day, but that wasn't possible.
Food and Dining
played Trivia, there wasn't much else we were interested in
They had a nice variety of entertainment. The shows were very different than I have seen on other cruises.
I didn't bring children
Service and Staff
The hot tubs had some issues. We saw some places that had a little bit of rust. The layout was great.
Cabin / Stateroom
My only complaint is that being down on the 5th floor, every time we got to shore, we heard all of the anchors, chains and connecting the stair/ladders. It woke me up at least 3 mornings.
I feel that some of the services were rather expensive. Be prepared for extra charges.
Ports Of Call
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
I would have like to tour the area around Civitavecchia. I looked very pretty. That opportunity did not become available
There were 5 ships in port the day we were there. It was difficult to see anything. It appeared very beautiful but most sites were so busy that you just didn't get the opportunity to see it.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
The town was kind of run down. We took an excursion to the Posiden temple, but we didn't see anything else. It was a rather long trip tp see one small ruin.
We did not take an excursion here. We walked around the city and walked to the run down wind mills.
We took a hop on hop off bus, which they only left you get off on one spot. That was at the shopping area. The places they took us were nice, but it would have been nice to get off the bus to get pictures, but that wasn't possible
Did not visit port
there wasn't anything there we were interested in seeing
This was the most beautiful place we visited. Unfortunately we were there on Sunday and a lot of places were closed. We were able to go on the hill where there was shopping available.
Ver y nice area. We took a highlights of Sicily excursion, This was a beautiful island.
We went to Lucca and then Pompeii. Amazing, I wish some of other excursions were as good as this one. Both places were amazing.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
We went to Pisa. I was amazed by the beauty of all of the buildings. The street vendors were a pain, but I know you cant do anything about them.
No problems, uneventful.
