We were looking for an alternative to cross the Atlantic other than by plane to avoid the jetlag. As this sailing fit in our time schedule we booked a cruise on Costa Deliziosa leaving Ft. Lauderdale March 03.
-To begin with the ship: Costa Deliziosa is an eldery lady in need of a thorough make-over. The entire interior decor and design was retro.
- Our cabin, which was a so-called Samsara balcony cabin mid forward looked tired and worn with stains on the old carpet and a shower curtain not properly fastened. Worse, the bedding reeked, and the linens were worn and had holes in them. The blankets were flimsy and not warm enough.
very poor standard for a Samsara Outside and noisy from above
Amber Cove is a really nice port, clean and with interesting facilities
interesting town offering nice strolls
very nice and easy to discover
beautiful town with wonderful historic buildings
we very pleasantly surprised by vieux Marseille and really enjoyed our walk through old town.
The ship berthed in Savona not Genoa we were amazed by the beauty of this little town.
well, Naples is Naples so in comparison to other Italian cities we did not find it too appealing.
Just did a city tour on the hop-on-hop-off but beware they are trying to catch customers right outside the pier and then, make them wait until the bus is full. Not recommendable.
Unexpectedley beautiful city with lots of history and nice to walk about.
we took a simple transfer bus from the ship and that did it. Historic Dubrovnik is easily self discovered although we found prices outrageous and a tourist grab.
