Riviera Cruise Review by Lee K
- Sail Date: August 2016
- Destination: Italy
- Cabin Type: Concierge Level
The bed and bedding were luxurious and the veranda we had divine. I spent a lot of time trying to master the WiFi and a laptop computer, and so the width of the room became narrowed between me in the chair and the coffee table and couch. Not a real problem, just an irritation as I spent much longer trying to use the internet than should have been needed. Chalk that one up to user error.
Even though I had told our charge card company that we would be travelling, I was unable to log into my account to look at transactions made during the trip. This was very frustrating, as we thought we had been cheated by one merchant and could not find out. The company wanted us to call them because of possibly fraudulent login attempts (mine), but we had no phone.
We only attended one of the evening musical productions, and that one badly needed more thought. . . There were so many amenities available, but with a new mooring every day there was little time to explore them.
The shore excursions were rather expensive, and I was especially watchful because I have difficulty walking -- one 'easy' one had us walking on cobblestones, uphill, for a good 15 minutes, which is nothing to a younger person but very difficult for me.
The ports, especially Corfu and Kotor, Montenegro were delightful, picturesque, and well worth all the money I spent in the shops.
Service was spectacular and I would recommend this line to anyone wanting classy, luxurious cruising.

KotorThis was the most beautiful scenery on the whole trip. We took a free shuttle in to the walled Old Town, then walked around there. My husband and I then separated, he to walk as high as he was able to on the historic steps up a really, really steep hill, me to continue walking around and getting disoriented and exiting the walled city in the commercial district (at which point I just walked downhill until I saw the ship). The cat is a symbol there, so shopping was especially fun if you like cats.View All 705 Kotor Cruise Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)We arrived 2 days before sailing, so did the Hop On Hop Off city tour and visited the places we especially want to see (after being awake for 36 hours to get there).View All 2,146 Rome (Civitavecchia) Cruise Port Reviews

SorrentoDescribed as an easy tour, there was too much walking for my 72-yr-old legs and heart. The visit to the woodworking shop was glorious. Wild fires did not help with overcast skies, but basically a nice place.View All 12,792 Sorrento Cruise Port Reviews

Mount EtnaWe took the 'easier' of the Mt. Etna tours. We enjoyed the view from 2/3 rds of the way up, shopped at a nice little shop that seemed to have everything you could imagine.View All 80 Mount Etna Reviews
