Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
Going into Venice
Glass blowing shore excursion

We picked this cruise as we wanted to spend a night in Venice and also go to Montenegro.

Unfortunately due to weather we were unable to get into Montenego so we went to Malta instead. Malta was very interesting. The sail in was amazing.

The weather was a bit cooler than expected when we booked it (though we packed accordingly). Seas a bit rough at times.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin E1

No idea if the cabin category I picked is correct, we had a balcony that's all I know. The small sofa in the cabin needs cleaning as the arms were black with dirt.

Port Reviews


We stayed 8 nights in Barcelona after the cruise and did lots of walking, tours, etc.


We took the tram around Cannes and then walked around.

Florence (Livorno)

We took the ship shuttle to Livorno and walked around, then took a shuttle to Pisa.


We took a ship excursion of the Amalfi Coast which was very nice and had a great lunch too.
