LARGE group - 40+ people. Efficient loading onto the bus and a very informative guide. The requisite stop before hand in a shop outside the gates and then we were lead into the ruins. It was truly amazing and an unforgettable experience to walk through Pompeii and to learn about the city and the eruption. However, about 1/3 of the trip was focused on the brothels and prostitution present in Pompeii (it seemed to be an early-version of Vegas frankly) so if you have little kids you may want to reconsider. We were unable to visit the museum and couldn't stray from the group but I feel like we saw Pompeii and had a good tour. It should also be noted that there was at least one other ship in port which PACKED Pompeii full. If we were to visit again we would let the groups go early and grab our own taxi in the late morning to tour the ruins on our own. Read Less

Cruise line rates this a level 3, thinking because it only rates with 3 levels. Climbing mount Vesuvius is a 6, but it was doable with frequent rest stops. Fortunately with started with the volcano and then did Pompeii. Would've been much harder if done in reverse. Highly recommend at least Pompeii and definitely the volcano for anyone willing to put in some strenuous activity. Read Less

We loved touring Pompeii an Sorrento but the tour was not the package we bought. The package we bought said it included lunch and a tour of a corral factory. But they were left out. Instead the tour operator brought us to a jeweler store where we wasted half an hour looking at expensive jewelry. When I complained at the excursion desk later I was told, MSC didn't book the tour so they are not responsible. Read Less

We started by visiting a cameo factory. I purchased 3 pendants, one for myself, one for my mother, and one for my mother-in-law. My mom says it is the best gift she has ever received! Pompeii is truly amazing. We could have spent three more days here just to see that we started to understand how special this place is. Our tour guide Antonella and our bus drive Luigi truly made this tour. We weren't too big of a group- around 20. While we saw a lot, there was a lot we couldn't get to due to time. WE enjoyed Naples and hope to return here someday to explore more! Read Less

This was for us the entire point of the cruise- a life long goal to stand in Pompeii and see it. after the long drive to Amalfi, a short drive to a restaurant for a horrible lunch, we had 50 minutes in Pompeii. Then he pushed us into the shopping area to buy horrible orange juice and the other tourist trap garbage being sold there. The guide was really great, but this was absolutely NOT what we expected from a 9.5 hour tour that promised lots of time to see the ruins. Pompeii is less than 30 minutes from the cruise ship. Get your own transportation and make it a day. We have to go back to italy so I can actually see Pompeii, and it will definitely NOT be with this cruise line or with an excursion that I don't have control over. Read Less
