Pre-cruise: As twice before, we had reserved a room with a package at the Hotel San Giorgio in Civitavecchia. In addition to the room, the package included a shuttle service from Funcimo Airport, Rome and to the Hotel, a good three course dinner at their nice restaurant “Bistro 34”, breakfast next day, and after breakfast – shuttle to the port.
Embarkation: Went very smoothly.
We have earlier sailed on several cruises in the Mediterranean, but never late fall. Therefore, we were a little anxious about the weather conditions at this time of the year. But more about the weather later in this review.
