Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. Our cabin was big enough considering we spent little time in it. We had a fantastic waiter, Andre and assistant waiter, Christian. They made dinner a special time, full of enjoyment. The food was good but the selection could have been better.
Our first port of call, Villefranche, was very nice. We were tendered and we had booked the Scenic French Riviera excursion through RC. It was very enjoyable. Livorno was next and again we booked a RC More excursion. It was wine tasting and a lot of fun. We docked in Civitavecchia and had hired Benvenuto Limos before we sailed to take us to Rome for a 9 hour tour. We had also booked with them a 2 ½ hour tour of the Vatican Museums. I highly recommend Benvenuto Limos. They are extremely professional and very knowledgeable.
After sailing through the Straits of Messina, we docked in Corfu. It was nice but we werent interested in walking around and exploring. Dubrovnik was next and a beautiful city. We walked around the wall and then did some shopping. Our next port was Venice and we were on deck for the hour long cruise along the city. We were so impressed by its beauty. We were docked over night which afforded us time to visit the city each day.
We made our way to Naples where again we had booked Benvenuto Limos for a tour of the Amalfi Coast. There were four of us and it was cheaper than RCs excursion. I thought it would be more enjoyable to do the coast in a Mercedes than a bus. The Amalfi Coast was breathtaking. Our driver was Giovanni Benvenuto, one of the owners of the limo company. His love of the area came through as he guided us along the coast. We have since heard from them hoping that we returned home safely and to let them know how we enjoyed their services.
Overall, it was the trip of a lifetime. At times it was quite exhausting but we kept on going not wanting to miss a minute of this wonderful cruise. Less
