Recommended by a travel agent. Cabin was for a handicapped person, which meant after a shower the entire bathroom floor was wet! Yuck! Shore tours were very expensive for what you got, not very informative, and poorly executed. Take a Scenic or Viking river cruise to find informative shore tours, these were a bust and mostly self-guided. What a rip. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable, the carpet heavily worn and not particularly clean. Mirrors and windows were dirty and didn't get cleaned on this short trip Cafeteria for breakfast was a 7 out of 10, limited seating was occasionally a challenge. The drink package was very expensive for low volume alcohol drinkers, paid $47 Cdn for 6 litres of water!! Specialty restaurants were very good, but expensive without the drink package. We still paid less than the drink package for two people but it was still $30 U.S. for three beers/wine plus $10 U.S, for access to alcohol.

  • Florence (Livorno)
    It was a 1.5 hr bus ride then entertain yourself. Unrelated minor illness prevented attendance.

  • Soller Walking Tour
    A short bus ride to Soller. The guide was not very informative nor was she an effective presenter. Discussions held in intersections while traffic was present. Little information presented on walking part of tour to town, with little regard for the safety of the group. The sidewalks became very narrow and there was little room between walls and road, but having instructions that basically told us that we were on our own in the intersection a short block from the town square was beyond the pale.
