Leaving Kotor

I chose this cruise for the destinations especially Dubrovnik and a chance to relive memories of Malta and Gozo.

On arrival at the embarkation I could not believe how simple and easy check in went - on board within 30 minutes of arrival.

Apparently the ship had been in dry dock and some work would continue during the cruise.

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VE

Adequate and like so many others on similar size cruise ships. Good storage and charging points. Good size balcony .

Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)

Pre cruise stay at the Fifteen Keys, excellent hotel.

Taormina (Messina)

The bus trip to the Straits of Messina was very cold and windy.

City section very pleasant. Beautiful church and quite a few hawkers.

Malta (Valletta)

Hop on Hop off bus trips .

Brought back memories . Built up areas not so pleasant as I previously remembered.


Plenty to see and very nice place.


Plenty to see in a very busy port. Many restaurants and free wifi everywhere.


Sunday visit and it seemed most things were closed


Always a good place to visit. Very atmospheric and some decent places to have a drink and food without paying through the roof.
