This question has been asked many times- if you type civitavecchia into the search box you will find your answers. Basically it is an easy €9 train ride into Roma Termini.

In Naples a 10-15min walk to the train station gives you access to trains to both Pompeii and Herculaneum. Cheap and easy! In Cadiz a good way of seeing the town is to jump on a tour bus. The stop is directly opposite the ships berth and you can hop on and off to your hearts content.

Yes very easy .the train station is about 10-15 mis walk from port entrance (port lays on a bus from the ship to port entrance -shuttle bus ) you can purchase a combined ticket for the train and the "hop on hop off bus " for 22 euro .......the bus is right outside the station in Rome Termini Station (last stop )it takes about 1hr 20min on train ..as i recall they were charging 155us dollars on board for a bus to Rome and leave you in centre for 3hrs ...you can do the same at a fraction of the tour cost .

With this honorific title, the cruise ship godmother is selected to bring good luck and protection to the vessel as well as being part of the naming ceremony. The ship is then christened with a bottle of champagne (done by pressing a button these days) as good luck.But this we...

It was time for my annual week away with great friends. Last year we went to New York, which was a little cold so this year we went to warmer climates.We stayed at Riu Cancun in Mexico which was a perfect location to the bustling nightlife.We boarded our flight in Manchester the day after and inch and a half of snow fell, so yes there was a two hour delay but that did not bother us. 10 hours later we had swapped the minus 2 degrees to a more relaxing 28 degrees.The hotel was fantastic, all i...

Smoking Should NOT be Allowed ...

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

When we book a cruise, part of our job is managing the whole experience. However, this week I have been upset to hear reports that two separate clients have been disturbed by others smoking on their balcony, this was on two different ships ex USA. We all know at sea that smoke is going to blow around!First, let me explain that some cruise lines have a strict no smoking policy in cabins and on balconies, which my clients would have been aware of. Most cruise lines can charge you a cleanup char...
