pleasant cruise; embarkation in Malta,

Ship is a good size, not huge, not tiny

Weather was clement - only ROME had rain but the day at sea from Cagliari to Hράκλειον (Heraklion) was bad around Sicily and Malta - we had great laughs trying to learn Latin american dancing with the ship thundering against the huge waves and the dance floor in Maharini's at the prow bouncing like a drum skin with each wave.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BC

cabin was just large enough not to feel cramped except the shower/toilet which were quite narrow.

Port Reviews

Florence (Livorno)

Livorno has a spacious city centre with an interesting outdoor and indoor market, grand square and a very neat layout. We know Pisa Lucca and Firenze very wellso were not interested in the tourist-overcrowded city tours offered

Rome (Civitavecchia)

we know Rome inside out -went for a stroll after the VERY LONG drive form Civitavecchia - very good except for the pizza al trancio which dripped oil everywhere and the rain shower.

Crete (Heraklion)

walked up and down form the port - Heraklion has improved greatly since my last visit and now offers quite a variety of experiences even in the short time of the stay

Sardinia

Cagliari is highly interesting as a city, with a labyrinth of narrow lanes and streets leading up to the cathedral.

Malta (Valletta)

we live here

Taormina (Messina)

walked through the city to the centre of town - great fashion shopping not only for ladies.
