Diocletians Palace is a must and also fun to see was the outdoor market which seemed to have everything.

all of Venice is wonderful and fun to see. my favorite place. Using the Vaporettos and Alilaguna boats were a must for anyone going there.

Rhodes, Greece

5 out of 5
Just explored ancient Rhodes and enjoyed it all. Walked to the Mandraki marina & port.

Pros: beds, food, service excellent

Cons: a distinct separation on Cunard between the uppers and the rest. Different dining rooms, retricted decks, etc.

Recommends Queen Victoria? No.
