I just returned from 3 days in Rome prior to a 10 day Mediterranean cruise with Celebrity. we were very happy with our experience. stayed at Hotel Centro in Rome which is a modest hotel but very clean, staff helpful, centrally located and a full breakfast included. They also arranged for veyr reasonable transfers for us in air conditioned Mercedes vehicles both from the airport and to the port. 180E total for the 3 of us.
We had not intended on using the ships excursions bec of cost but once there realized it was a bit risky to try and get around on your own and be sure to get back to the ship on time. We were very happy with our excursions and felt we wasted less time getting to our destinations as well. We were very happy with Celebrity in every way and the food was excellent. The stateroom was a good size for the 3 of us. Write with any questions- this was our first cruise so know we had lots of questions. will be glad to help if I can. Kim
