Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

We have travelled on three different cruises; Carnival 😶, Disney 😘 and now Holland America 😃😃😃😃. This was a great trip with me and my husband and our three children; 17, 14, and 9. We did all the various shore excursions, and it was a great way to get an introduction to Southern Europe. But the cruise ship specifically I would say; great and friendly crew, excellent food, great accommodations and would travel with Holland America and Zuiderdam again.

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Naples, Italy
Nothing to see in Naples. We did not do an excursion this trip.
Palermo, Sicily
Olbia, Sardinia
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
It was great to see Piza, but it was hot and very crowded.
Calvi, Corsica
Monte Carlo, Monaco
Monaco was kinda "Ho-hum", but Eze was amazingly!!!!
Saint Raphael, France
Beautiful City, very friendly.


Don't buy wine on the excursions to drink on board. They charge 18 Euros for un corking fee. Better off to bring your favorite wines with you instead.
