Sail Date: Nov 2013

This was billed as 7 days of river cruising and 6 nights of land travel to visit Florence and Rome with stops on the way to both.

Unfortunately as seen from other reviews, there was little cruising to be had other than in the lagoon. While the captain attempted to give us some of that, it really didn't live up to it's billing.

The ship was wonderful and well as her crew, food outstanding and our fellow travelers made our trip. The long bus rides for 4 days need to be evaluated and made more comfortable given the amount of time spent on this mode of transportation. Guides in local areas were outstanding, very knowledgeable and accommodating to questions and clarification.

Cabin Review

Nice cabin, only tight when two people trying to shower and dress at same time. Right next to the dining room, therefore great access and no noise after 9:00 p.m.
