This is my first posting here and I am hoping to find some info on the Western Mediterranean cruise. I am looking at a superior oceanview cabin - does it matter which side of the ship we book in regards to views along the way? I don't even know where to begin with excursions, etc. but a cabin choice would be a good start!
In my humble opinion, the side of the ship isn't that important on a Mediterranean cruise. However, if you would like to enjoy the coastline from your cabin, it depends on whether the cruise sails clockwise ot counter-clockwise. If it sails clockwise, portside offer more coastal views, while starboard offers better views if the itinerary runs counter-clockwise.
We are going to Villefranche, Nice, Livorno, Naples, Venice, Dubrovnik, Corfu, Rome and then back to Barcelona. Most of the trip follows the clockwise direction. I was wondering if you can see the shoreline at night along the way or not.
Thanks for the info. I was hoping that that was the case. I am all set to book the cruise now- very exciting. The itinerary is daunting, but it should be busy enough to keep us from getting bored. Thanks again!
