For starters, this was my 15th cruise overall and fifth with NCL. This trip was three years in the making. We had to cancel our original 7-night cruise out of Venice due to COVID. We chose this itinerary because of the great ports. 11 nights Barcelona to Rome with stops in Cannes, France, Livorno (Florence/Pisa), Naples, Messina, Sicily, Kotor, Montenegro and Greece (Corfu, Santorini, Athens and Mykonos).
What a cruise. The ports were absolutely amazing. I had previously been to Florence/Pisa and Naples (Amalfi and Pompeii), so most of these stops were new for both me and my wife.
Messina was unbelievable. Loved Santorini, Kotor and Mykonos and the history of Florence/Athens was amazing.
