Additional details

Sail Date: Jun 2011
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

We booked this cruise departing from Venice on May 21 2011 but RCI cancelled it and offered a refund or change of departure to 4 June with an on board spend of $200 which we accepted and this included our travel from Manchester with jet2 and transport to the port

We were unable to check in on line as this was a group booking by RCI so we had to join a very long queue at the airport to check in the flight was on time and the transfer to the port good but it was a rather chaotic check in before boarding at approx midday

We have been on Voyager previously so knew the ships layout so had lunch in the Windjammer and went to our room after 1pm our bags arrived early afternoon and we sailed at 5pm for Koper

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin E2

Our cabin was average size good storage space the furnishings are a bit dated

Bathroom tiny and like a capsule with a shower gel dispenser and not even a shower cap!

small size balcony as deck 6 has less viewing glass as cabins on the higher decks

6622 is in an excellent position beside the lifts and stairs and has good views to forward and aft a great location and very quiet would recommend this area

pa system useless and TV had poor fuzzy reception

Port Reviews

Venice

Venice is a lovely city there is a little shuttle train at the port for 1 Euro each way and it take a 15 -20 minute walk through the streets to San Marco or Rialto Use the water buses as a 12 hour ticket means you can travel all day around the islands and a visit to Murano is worth the trip alone also the Lido and you can also return to the port on these to avoid the expensive shuttle ! Go to the main attractions early to avoid long queues to Doge palace and San Marco as it is a very crowded city The glass shops on Murano are worth looking at (costly !)

Dubrovnik

Beautiful city get the local bus (avoid $15 shuttle) for a few kuna Walk the walls or take a boat trip or the cable car up to the top for stunning views of the city Kuna is the currency and euros are not widely accepted lots of restaurants and little shops or inexpensive Internet cafes

Bari

Good city clean and good shops but take a tour to Alberello to see the Trulli houses it will take over a hour to get there but well worth seeing this world heritage sight and the journey through the olive groves is very pleasant Get a good guide who will give the history of this beautiful area
