Review for Norwegian Epic to Europe - Western Mediterranean

This was our favorite port. You just walk off the ship and in a short circuit can go and see Napoleon's birthplace, take a dip at the public beach and have an aperitif at a cafe. Beautiful, relaxing and easy. ...

We hadn’t planned any excursions for Ajaccio. NCL had none (at any point months before the cruise day) that appealed to us, we spoke French, and decided to just figure it out. We made it our beach day. There are two beaches close to the cruise port; just walk out of the port and go left. Plage de Saint François is very close to the port, a leisurely 10 minutes, looks sandy, but is very narrow. ...

Don't bother with the Mountains and Mapeis excursion. Most of what you see is trees, trees, trees, and yet more trees, apart from a short photo stop in the woods near a tumbling stream, and a similar stop overlooking a reservoir. Ajaccio seems to be a working town, with little touristy about it, but there is a minitrain - €8 for a 45 min tour, but with a 15min stop at a park with lots of steps up ...

Review for MSC Grandiosa to Europe - Western Mediterranean

The ship berthed at a pier close to the town, so it was easy to walk around the town and the harbour. The lines to re-board the ship were very long and the process took over an hour. There was no MSC presence to monitor and control what was happening in the lines, and this aspect spoiled an otherwise pleasant visit to the Ajaccio. ...

Charming town. The night before this stop, we attended the ship's orientation lecture onboard. It was standing room only, because no one had much knowledge about this port. The speaker made it sound like the port was only a handful of buildings, and almost everything would be closed since it would be Sunday. I think many decided to skip this stop and stay on the ship. Fortunately we went ...

One of the highlights of our cruise. Corsica is a French island but was an Italian Island for much of its history. Corsica sill has much Italian influence and personality, so much so that even the oft times arrogant French cannot subdue. If you arrive early morning, you must visit the fresh produce market just a short 50 metres from the port where you can buy freshly made Italian and French ...
