Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)

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.

Crete (Heraklion)

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

Was excellent

Athens (Piraeus)

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
