We are travelling on the Carnival Freedom in May next year and will be calling into Naples. Our major interest is Pompeii and Herculaneum. Any advice on the best way to see these sites in the time available would be appreciated. I think we would have about 9hours ashore allowing 2hrs for disembarking an embarking.

Hi Ptur,
look at the "Europe port chat" for Pompeji. There you will find a lot of advices. You can take thr train Circumvesuviana from Naples frsit to Peompeji Scavi. Than back direction Naples to Ercolano (Herculaneaum). You will need about three to four hours least for Pompeji and two to three hours for Ercolano.
Regards
Uwe

Ptur, You can do Pompeii and Hurculanium on your own if you like some adventure. You would need to get from the pier in Naples to the train station, which can be done using a local bus or a taxi (you might have to grab a taxi on the street since most inside the port want to only take full-day bookings). You than take the Circumvesuviana Line (their platforms are on the lower level of the station) to Pompeii Scavi and Ercoliano Scavi (both stops are actually on the same train line) where the stops are close to the ruins. When you get to the first ruins (you can do it either order) you want to buy a combination ticket which costs 18 Euros and allows you admission to both Pompeii and Herculanium (this saves you 2 Euros per person over seperate admissions). At the sites you can either pay to join a guided group (usually about 10 Euros per person) or you can rent a self-guided audio-tour. Both of these ruins are wonderful,,,but be prepared for a lot of walking and pray that it is not very hot.

To Uwe and Hank,
Thank you for your input
One I hope final question how far is the train station away from the port. Is it too far to walk?
Thanks
Peter

Hi Peter,
in this days you better take a taxi from the port to the train station in Naples. Or go by tramway (about ten minutes). For a walk you will need about twenty minutes.
Have a nice day in Pompeji
Regards
Uwe

Hi Uwe,
You say in "these days you'd better take a taxi" can you please explain? Is there a problem walking to the train station?
