Please see the Port sections about what to see and visit.
Dinner- I read so may reviews that complained about the dinner at night, but we found it to be very good. We did have an issue with service and didn't like the fact we were sitting on a rectangular table for 8 More instead of a circular table. We complained and the next night we were moved to a different table and the service was actually so much better. We had the late seating 8:45, which we like to give us time to rest after the excursion's and hang out by the pool for a few hours prior to dinner.
Entertainment- I read reviews that people didn't go to the shows. Go to the shows. They were all very good. This is your vacation. Stay up and live a little. Like they say on the ship-you can sleep at home.
Cabin- We had an Inside cabin. Most people had balconies. We rather have used the money on excursions than the balcony. The reason is that we hardly spend any time in our room anyway. The room was plenty big and they had the biggest shower that I have seen. Our room attendant (Joyce) was very good. Less
Cabin review: 108276 Inside Stateroom
Plenty of room. Walls are thin. Heard the people in the next cabin talking. My wife wanted a more powerful hair blower.Read All Inside Stateroom (10) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
Naples- We used Italy Limousine which I would recommend. The driver didn't speak the best English but we got by. We visted Pompeii, Rovello, Positano and the Amalfi Coast. If we had to do over we would have spent more time in Positano and just walked around. We did have luch here. We ate at Three Sisters Restauarnt which was on the beach. we had deiciuos pizza. In Pompeii you may want to hire a private guide. We didn't but probably should have.
Great Vacation in Europe
