My husband and I traveled with the Emerald Princess August 15th 2015 for a week eastern Mediterranean cruise.
We've been on a selection of previous cruise lines including RCCI oasis of the seas, Carnival, Thompson, Norwegian, Celebrity X.
Our ages are late 40s
We arrived in Rome two days before to take in the sights stayed at the hotel Cavavilieri highly recommend and dined there too,
Rome is a lovely city very busy and not to big to get around wear sensible shoes as there is lots of cobbled streets.
Use Naples to get to other areas as it felt quite unsafe we went left behind the castle to the shopping streets it was a Sunday so lots of places where closed,
You have to get a pizza Margarita and gelato here.
Really nice place we just went around on our own shopping and eating felt safe and no hassles
We took a taxi to Falaraki beach and had a beach day you pay for the taxi after he comes back for you great day
We've been here before and stayed on the ship we did not want the hard sell from all the shops
Loved Santorini went up on the cable car €5 each way
got a private taxi to Oia was beautiful driver waited
You have to eat at Argo along from the cable car port
We where flying out from here the airport is about forty min taxi so give yourself plenty of time
We spent time before flying at the foot of the Acropolis lots of shops markets and restaurants
