Gibraltar
Dolphin Watch Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
Marked this down only because we didn't see any dolphins. We were unlucky this time though as we've seen loads of dolphins on previous trips. The boat trip itself is nice - and it's really great if you do get to see the dolphins

Lisbon
Cascais Walking Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
this was actually a combined Cascais/Sintra trip - and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Both great to visit and enjoy some free time in with Cascais being on the coast and Sintra inland in the mountains

Firenze Walking Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Panoramic Florence with approx 2 hours of free time in Florence itself - great trip with a knowledgeable guide and plenty of time for sight seeing and shopping

Tarquinia Ice Cream Tasting Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Tarquinia is really pretty - and the ice cream tasting was great. Started with 3 scoops of ice cream from a selection of different flavours, and then they showed you how they made vanilla ice cream. Once made they presented you with a scoop in a cornet, and then did the same with strawberry ice cream!

Portofino Walking Tour Rating: 1.0 out of 5+
this was an excursion to St Margarita by coach with a boat transfer to Portofino. The weather was poor, which resulted in a separate excursion of a scenic boat trip to Portofino being amended such that everyone was coached to St Margarita for transfers from there. This resulted in everyone arriving at the same time and trying to get on the same boat. The boat was packed, no seats were available, and we had to stand in what turned out to be very rough seas with little to hold on to. It was dangerous! Celebrity did quickly provide a full refund though

St. Paul de Vence Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
very pretty, albeit hilly with steep cobbled pavements. Well worth a visit.
