In Naples, you are in the city as soon as you leave the ship. You can either go on an organised tour to Pompei or Sorento. You can go to Capri independently, however due to the large number of tourists you might be better going in the organised tour. In Nice, it is very easy to get to Monte Carlo and Monaco independently. If you do this you can decide where you spend your time. I personally would recommend Monaco. Hope this helps.

Rome...we found really easy to do on the train from Civitavecchia for 9 euros return including the metro and bus fares...Florence we did a tour where the ship's coach took us there and then we did our own thing before we all met up for our return. Naples we did the Pompeii excursion which was excellent. Athens I believe is easy to do from Piraeus but we did a whistle stop tour of the sites and then couple of hours shopping.

Naples is a bit like visiting the UK and going to Manchester. However one year we did an organised excusion walking to the top of Vesuvius, it's not to hard for anyone who can walk a couple of miles on the flat and the views were very good (just get the shoes a bit dusty so washable trainers or walking shoes are recommended). Sorrento is also only a short boat trip and far better just watch your timings if you go it alone. As for Nice it depends where you actually dock/tender sometimes Nice is shown on the itinery and you actually tender at Ville France. Either way the whole coast is connected by a very cheap and regular train from Cannes to Monaco. We've done white water rafting from Nice, Marineland in Biot Antibes and the Grand Casino in Monaco all fantastic days and the latter two very cheap (in fact came back from the casino £150 up).

What Jane failed to show/mention

By Kerry James

I have been watching this series of Cruising with Jane McDonald (Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 5), and thought that when she was on MSC and Viking she did show more of the ship to the watcher/cruiser which I did think was lacking in the first series.I was surprised MSC had them back on as in the first series she didnt really show of the MSC Divina but was pleased to see that she was showing the newest ship in the fleet – MSC Meraviglia (at the moment until the MSC Seaside and MSC Seav...

Ciao I am Sailing

By Frankie Bond

Frankie Bond's blog

As you read this I will have started my own holiday – and yes you have guessed it I am off on a cruise…Firstly I will be spending 3 nights in the Mestre area of Venice to explore this beautiful city which I must admit to having never been to before (other than landing at the airport for a transfer to Trieste in April) I am looking forward to strolling around the beautiful streets, stopping for an ice-cream or a coffee in a lovely square and also to exploring the waterways of Veni...

Ryanair are a joke!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

Well you have read the news. Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news. Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ? Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are...
