Wow Tom,

you have been very busy. Very interesting port reviews and really excellent pictures.

But be sure, Im prepared for my first review when I come back from my Transatlantic Cruise with the Splendour. Ive bought a big diary to write down my impressions of the ship, the ports and, and, and.

I hope, that I can read your review of the Splendour within the next weeks.

Best regards

thanks for the excellent reviews. My brother will be visiting some of these ports on his honeymoon cruise next year and I am sure your reviews will help him even more enjoying these ports.
Best regards,

Raoul Fiebig

Tom, I appreciate your reviews. I am cruising with my two daughters in July 2005 and plan to use your advice. We will go into some of the ports without paid guides (like Dubrovnik and Pompei), but would like your advice as to where a paid tour would be recommended. This is my oldest child's sweet 16 gift and am both thrilled and proud of her choice...so now I'm in the process of making it as memorable as possible. I don't want to be a pest but I hope to be in contact with you once or twice before we embark on our journey.

What itinerary are you on? Virtually all of the Western Med can be done on your own. You can see more and pay LOTS less and have a great time.

Your reviews are excellent, the pictures worth a thousand words. I will be cruising the Mediterranean in May on Millenium. My cousin will accompany me - she is partially handicapped. She can walk, but very slowly, and not where there are inclines. I have read your "ON Your Own" segments and would like your advice. What ports should we not attempt on our own. What ports would train travel prove to be a problem for the handicapped.

Welcome back Tom,
Is it feasible to do Nice, Eze, St Paul De Vence, and then end in Monte Carlo for dinner maybe a short time in casino to be back on ship at 10 or 11pm for sail at midnight
I have been told not to miss Fondation Maeght This museum is world-renowned, and deserves the reputation. The collection of 20th-century paintings, sculptures and ceramics is extensive and excellent. Very small museum that can easily be done in a short time and worth visiting even for non-museum types.
Should we wing this itinerary on our own taking taxis to get to each of the towns, and how long will it take to get back to Villefranche and cost of taxi.

Just read your review of Civitavecchia. We hope to take the train FROM downtown Rome TO the ship (we're staying in Rome for several days before our cruise). You mention a shuttle from the Civitavecchia port to the ship itself. Is this something that's easy to find? Are they waiting by the port entrance? Or did I read it incorrectly? Thanks -
