The reason I choose this cruise was to see Gibraltar and Pisa. They canceled the 2 most important ports during the Cruise. I had two great excursions canceled. I hope I have a chance in the future to see them. But the pots of Marseille and Genoa we great, The tour guides were excellent but we needed a little more shopping time. 20 to 30 minutes is really not enough time to purchase gifts. The ship is very clean and most of the staff is very helpful. The covid test needed to enter France and Italy are easy but make sure you keep written results of your tests plus your covid shot record in your passport. You will need it at several ports and airports. Italy still has a mask mandate in every city. They require an n95 mask so your cloth masks leave on the ship, but you still see many people without masks in the cities.
