With quite a few cruises under our belts, we were very pleased to find a Mediterranean cruise with 4 ports-of-call that we have not been to before. Our itinerary started with an overnight stay onboard in Venice – very useful as it gave us a whole day in Venice – easily accessed from the ship by a 'People Mover' tram and then Vaporetto No.1. Venice is always amazing, whether on your first visit or any number of repeat visits – like stepping in to a painting! It always takes my breath away. We had full days at all our ports (not all cruise lines do this), so there was no need to rush around. Koper, Slovenia was a delight and in the aftenoon we took a trip to another beautiful old town, Piran. Ravenna, Italy provided us with fabulous mosaics that are UNESCO monuments. Split, Croatia is a pretty town, reached by tender, and we were entertained in the Doge's Palace by a wonderful male Acapella group. Dubrovnik is always lovely – the Old Town is easily reached from the port by taxi – 10 Euros per car! Kotor, Montenegro – we were up early to enjoy the majestic scenery as we sailed in to Kotor. Our only ship excursion took us to the top of Mount Lovcen via 25 hairpin bends…the views were superb of The Bay of Kotor. Bari, Italy – we were entertained by a ceremony with full marching band and a speech by the Mayor. Catania, Sicily – a once grand town, but with its poor economy now slightly crumbling . Naples – we were spoilt for choice – Pompeii, Herculaneum, Sorrento, Capri. Our cruise ended in Rome, where we had an excellent minibus tour of the city before our flight home The Celebrity Silhouette is a lovely ship – spacious, elegant, good food, good company. Just watch out for and avoid their expensive shuttle buses.

    Hi Su,
    I have not been on a cruise I haven't enjoyed!
    Foodwise, I think Princess has the best, closely followed by Holland America and Celebrity.

    We enjoy Celebrity Cruises, the food is amazing!
