Hi LulyR, welcome to CruiseReviews! Congratulations on your upcoming cruise, sounds fantastic! Have you checked out our Europe Port Chat Section a little further down on the main page? There are many posts there that may help answer your questions. In order to cut down on the reading, you can use your Search tool located at the top of the page. Type in your ports and it will pull up relevant posts. Also, if you'll post your questions in the Europe Port Chat section, you may get better visibility. I wish I could be of more assistance, but have not had the pleasure of doing a Med itinerary....yet
I hope you have a marvelous cruise and will visit us many more times to tell us where your next one is going and how the one you returned from was. Best Wishes!
