When i was on a tour of rome 2 years ago i saw some people of a cruise holiday and they seem to do a fair amount of walking, but the route back to the ship is a straight road back, i have a disability andi found it a bit of a struggle. have a good holiday i am on same ship 20th september.
I was on the Independence in June and I cancelled a Rome trip as I was doubtful whether I would be able for all the walking. As soon as I got on the ship I went to the excursions desk and booked a place on the trip Easy Rome which can only be booked once you are on the ship. This tour was a half day and the coach took you everywhere you would want to see, the only time we were out of the coach was for about 45 mins at the Vatican and it was only a short walk from the coach into St Peters Square. This trip worked well for me and is perfect for somone with walking difficulties.
We did Rome in sept 06 and there is alot of walking involved if your detailes state alot of walking then there will be........ do a less activity/easy icon one,that way you will enjoy it more.....enjoy your cruise.
