Civitavecchia to rome by train is just over half hour, by coach it is over an hour (train much cheaper), Ville France to Monaco - about 20minutes by coach not far at all and very nice scenery en-route - one of my favourites. Rome can have lots of traffic so perhaps train would be better but not sure if trains have toilets but at least you can get off. In France not far so you should be ok - traffic depends on what day you are in port.

The distance from Olbia airport to Porto Cervo Costa Smeralda by car is about 25 miles. If the ship excursion uses the direct route, most of the journey is on a main road. I think you would find it difficult to travel independently in Sardinia without a hire car.

By Alison Ranaldi

This morning a two night cruise on Celebrity Silhouette went on sale for 28th April next year.This will be the first time Silhouette has sailed from Southampton so a great opportunity to see the ship without the hassle of flying. At a lead-in fare from just 299pp including all drinks, food, entertainment and gratuities, it was a bargain.Silhouette takes nearly three thousand passengers and as I write this, there are only a handful of cabins remaining which we expect to see go in the next hour...
