I am sure that you can do your own thing from there but I suggest that you google " Marina di Carrara" (please spell it correctly) and do your research that way . .... Neil.

I did send a reply earlier but because I mentioned a certain word it appears to have been withheld So..... Look up Marina di Carrara, you spelt it wrong by the way, on the web and it will tell you loads about the port and like most places in the Med you can do your own trips easily with public transport or mor expensively with taxis. A hire car is an option but only if you are a very competent driver should you tackle Italy. .... Neil.

The was not a lot in Marina di Carrara itself but the port had abus service up the mountain to Carrara which has shopping facilities. Carrara is famous for it's marble which was used for the statue of david and you can visit the quarries further up the mountain. Pisa and Florence are also within commutable distances on the train. When our ship stopped at this port in Oct quite a few people who did their own thing and visited both Pisa and Florence but only managed an hour at each location due to having needed to be back at the ship .

We were at this port in August unexpectedly instead of Livorno. Public transport was a little thin on the ground as it was a Sunday. It was also too far in a Taxi. But we tried the local beach about 15 minutes walk and we had a great morning there. The mountains in the backgrond are a great sight. Enjoy!

Do you need protection?

By Barbara Hopley

You may think ‘What is she on about?’Well let me explain….I have friends, family & even some customers who book their own holidays online then something goes wrong and what do they do – come to me for advice or help.I will help anyone but as a Travel Agent this is the worst thing that can happen as firstly, they didn’t book with me, secondly, they then want my help to sort out whatever issue there is.I can give so many examples of this, so here are a few:-Boo...

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...

Brilliant News For Solo Travellers!

By Michelle Fennelly

Michelle Fennelly's blog

As a single traveller the majority of cruise liners will charge at least 100% supplement on a twin berth cabin for sole occupancy; this is actually double the price which in my view it is just ridiculous. It isnt fair and its not acceptable and its about time most cruise liners understood that a lot of their guests do travel alone.Well my good news is that Fred Olsen are doing special offers for solo travellers, eventually a cruise liner that has listened to their guests.The deal Fred Olsen a...
