Gibraltar
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Better than I thought it would be, just had a walk around and chose not to go to see the Apes - those that did had some scary experiences!

Used the Hop on Hop off bus to see as much as we could - great value ticket for 3 different lines. Camp Nou looked really interesting.

OK but over rated and expensive. Nice to see all the yachts and we went into the shopping centre using the lift in the cave. Tender port which I didn't like!

Second time in Rome so we chose to do Rome on your own - $79 which was quite expensive. My advice would be to use the train which I believe is only 7 Euros. That way you can come back when you like. We really enjoyed our day but by 3pm were ready to head back to the ship.

Naples

We chose to do the trip to Pompeii from 8.15am-12.15pm. It was very interesting but hot so would suggest the half day is plenty to see everything you need to.

Beautiful little place and would highly recommend just getting off the ship and having a walk about. We found a little bakers and went and sat in the square to eat our lunch. Lovely and clean with nice little shops and squares.
