Excellent Cruise

Sail Date: September 2017
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
Had a great time, all the ports were beautiful and plenty of time to see everything. Would have liked a longer port of call in Malta. Room was clean and nice size for balcony room. Food and drinks were excellent and the crew was amazing as all were polite and always smiling and willing to assist/serve. Pool was a little cold, but hot tubs were all nice temperature and quite clean. Towel service was very good and you could always get clean replacement towels when you needed them. Dining service was a little slow as it took them a long time to bring the food, usually at dinner for a couple of hours so we always missed the start of the late show. Cruise director was very friendly and was a very good host. Like the overnight stay in Venice, as one of the nicer ports. Like going through the strait between Sicily and Naples. Also liked going through the canal in Venice as you could see both sides of the city clearly. Less

Cabin review: BX11658 Balcony

Balcony cabin was a nice size, was clean and brightness was perfect. Good TV with a lot of channels. Bathroom was nice as toilet, shower and sink were all separate.

Port and Shore Excursions

hop on hop off bus was excellent as we saw the whole island and drove around a couple of times. Got off/on, went to the beach, water was quite warm, but you require swimming shoes.

Beautiful view from the mountains, very scenic and breath taking views of Crotia.

Olympia Archeological Tour

Olympia was okay, lots of history, but buildings all old and destroyed so can't tell what they once looked like. they should restore some of them, but beach was nice, sandy and you could go out far as it did not get very deep.

Skocjan Caves

caves were amazing as we never saw anything like this before, lots of walking so we were a little sore the next day, but well worth it, would recommend this to everyone.

booked a private tour for my group of 8 (day before the cruise), saw the Trivi fountain, Spanish stairs, St. Peter square, Vatican, coliseum, etc.

Booked a taxi driver who drove us around and showed us all the sites.

We went on our walking tour as we took the water taxi to the main square, walked around Venice, ate lunch and then went back to ship. Did more of the same the next day as we continued to walk around and tour on our own.
