Be careful in Naples pickpockets bag snatchers and muggers are a big big problem the place is dirty graffiti covered city i suggest that you catch the fast ferry to Capri the ferry is is on the left next to where you dock a much nicer place to se.

It is easy to DIY if you do enough research. Go to cruise critic and their ports of call section for tons of info.

Villefranche: you are right in town Naples: you are right in town Pisa: You dock in Livorno and have to get a bus out of the huge port complex. From town catch the '1' bus to the station and from there the trains run frequently to Pisa, and take 15 mins.

Villefranche is a wonderful place and you dock in the bay, tender to shore. You also have easy acccess to Nice and Monaco, Monte Carlo from Villefranche- there is a train line and I believe buses to both these places. You can walk from Monaco to Monte Carl.

We always DIY these ports by train. From Villefranche you can easily get to Monacao/Monte Carlo, Nice and Cannes. To save valuable time check out the timetables on www.voyages-sncf.com (scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the union jack for the English version) From Naples you can catch the Circumvesuviana train to Pompeii, Herculaneum or Sorrento. Check out http://www.sorrentoinfo.com/timetable/local_train_sorrento.htm. Alternatively, you can catch the hydrofoil to Sorrento, Capri or Ischia These are frequent and fast - if you need timetables, post again and I'll dig them out From Livorno, you can travel to Floence, Pisa and Lucca by train. We usually get the ship shuttle to downtown, then the no.1 bus to the station (tickets on sale at the newsagent shop across the road) Check out http://www.trenitalia.com/en/orari_biglietti/index.html for timetables .

A Cruiser? Me Sir? No Sir?...

By Jodie Baldwin

My last blog was about my partner actually taking his first cruise . My blog today has been done by Mike who tells us about his first cruise experience. Today is part 1 with part 2 to follow next time. Here goes!The idea of a cruise never really ‘floated my boat’. Hundreds actually thousands of people lumped onto a vessel, fighting for space and corralled for a least a week . No- not for me. On the other hand , if your partner is employed by one of the largest cruise travel agenci...

Well I am back from my Italian holiday and I paid a visit to Trento, the capital city of Trentino Alto Adige in the north of Italy nestled between the Alps. The drive to Trento was lovely and the view driving through by car was amazing, we were surrounded my mountain by their white tips all the way there. Verona to Trento is about 1 hour and there are good train connections.We visited an Aeronautical museum of Giovan Battista Caproni, one of the most important engineers of Aeroplane’s h...

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...
