Although this was our 7th Azamara cruise, it was our first ever Mediterranean cruise. We chose this ‘Rome to Venice’ itinerary because it included the Amalfi Coast.

As we had been to Rome before we stayed in Civitavecchia for 3 nights before the cruise, giving us two full days there.

We spent a day wandering around the town, looking at the market and the harbour especially. We also spent a day in Tarquinia, getting there by the local bus. What a beautiful walled town.

Thank you for the cruise review Host Grandma Cruising! It sounds like you had the perfect Mediterranean vacation. And as always, thank you for moderating our CC forum for us. We very much...

Cabin Review

Club Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin 04

Comfortable stateroom. Very quiet, close to the lifts at the front of the ship. Small bathroom with curtained shower. Extremely comfortable bed. We found the heavy table a bit too big and it got in the way of accessing the wardrobe and other storage areas.

There were not enough coat hangers, but the steward found me a stack of wire coat hangers to supplement those provided.

2 dressing gowns and slippers provided. Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion and soap provided.

Port Reviews

Positano (Amalfi)

Loved Ravello, found Positano very crowded (it was a Sunday),

Dubrovnik

Ship anchored off and tenders took us straight into the old town harbour.

Took a ferry to Cavtat, which we loved

Sibenik

Lovely town, very hilly. Fantastic views from St Micael’s Castle. Ship had to get through very narrow St Anthony’s channel to get there, which was very interesting

Ravenna (Bologna)

Seeing the mosaics is a must. Lovely old town with beautiful shops.

Venice

Ship docked at St Basilio which was very close to main town. Had problems getting a vaporretto ticket. There is a newsagent under the bridge at St zbasilio zvaporretto station that sells tickets, but it doesn’t open until after 10am. If it’s closed best bet is to walk down to next station, Zatere, where there is a kiosk that’s open more often.

Also to get back to St Basilio from StMarks it’s best to get a Vaporretto to Academia, then a 5 minute walk straight through to Zatere, then get a Vaporretto to San Basilio.
