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).

Riviera Drinks Packages & S...

By Jill Johnson

I along with a lot of people like to enjoy myself when on holiday and fab news (I think ) for all of their 2018 cruises with Riviera they will be offering drinks packages and cleverly planned too. With most River Cruise Lines drinks are included with Lunch & Dinner as standard, if you are a drinker or not and include Wine, Beer & Soft Drinks. However often my clients will tell me they dont drink or one of the party drinks and the other one doesn’t so this is false econom...

Whos behind the scenes?

By Silvana Hollinrake

Silvana Hollinrake's blog

Restaurants on cruise ships always fascinate me. The planning that must go behind the scenes must be unbelievable and skilled, serving thousands of guests on a daily basis on a two to three hour window slot accommodating clients special requests sounds challenging. Imagine the pressure of staff having to go through these challenging shifts more than once a day and every day and for the length of their contracted work season. It sounds like a hard work and a lot of responsibility trying to off...
