Back cruising after a long time
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
Having said that, one day stopovers, we had French singing in the square of Nice, Spanish guitar and dancing, a rare chance to see Nth Africa and Kasbah and Medina.
Next time, in Livorno we would go to Portovenere close by and see a bit more of Sorrento or go to Pompeii.
The ship was just the right size with a great layout. The staff were mostly very good. Great organisation that worked so smoothly. Very good team of organisers.
Very good food too.
We were lucky with the weather being a perfect balance of the ports (23-28C).
The weather was fine and the sea smooth so we don't know how it would go on rough seas of a long More trip. There was good entertainment although some casual group playing during the day etc ...might have been nice.
About 50% dearer than our RCL cruise in 2011, I would have to say that this is the standard setter and I'm thinking that below Cunard (too posh?), I can't think anyone would equal it. Reluctant to book any other unless just to try. Less
Seemed like a training cruise
Overall a great experience
