    A personalized tour with a very knowledgeable guide.
    Our tour guide, Caramela (?) gave the 2 of us descriptions of each room before we reached them so we knew what to expect and then she told us more. Since it was just the 2 of us, we had opportunities to ask questions.

    A fantastic Excursion
    Our guide, Francisco, was incredibly knowledgeable about the war in Italy. He made history come a;live during our trip. We went on a private tour that was a total immersion in history.

    Not worth it. The tickets are less at the ticket counter and are better off on your own.
    The tour guide was not where we were supposed to meet. The Vatican requires paper tickets to enter and the mobile confirmation was not accepted. We paid for tickets and the tour yet ended up having to buy tickets at the ticket counter to enter the Vatican. The tickets are less and you’re better off going on your own.

    BAD "small group" Rome/Coluseum excursion from Royale Caribeean
    These are things that would have been really helpful when I was reading reviews, preparing and deciding on a shore excursion on Royale Caribeean cruise. If you ask me, DO NOT pay more for the expensive "small group" excursions. My brother and i did the same Rome/Coluseum excursion but mine said small group. He paid $173 and I paid $350+. The description on mine said it went inside the Coluseum and that it included lunch at a "5 star restaurant". His did not so we assumed and expected something more for my extra $180. Nope, he did the exact SAME tour. There was absolutely NO difference in the fact that mine was a "small group". In fact, we kept running into him at every spot. Also, I know it's not important to all but for those that want and like to buy souvenirs because it's your first time in Rome, forget it. For the 10+ hour excursion we were given 15 mins right outside the Basilica and that was it. It would've been helpful if they mentioned there would be NO other opportunity to buy souvenirs. Our guide was HORRIBLE!! She ran through the whole tour like it was a sprint. We didn't even get to take pictures of most things because she was moving so fast. We got left behind a few times because we decided to that a minute to admire things like the Piata by Michaelangelo. The "5 star" restaurant food was awful and my brother ended up at the same restaurant. I hope my post is helpful.

    Excellent!!
    Great time. Pick up from hotel in Rome and left the driving to Johnny. Paola was a great guide. Lunch was wonderful. Thank God for Johnny's air conditioned vehicle.

    Memorable and fun experience for all ages.
    We have 7 and 9 year old boys and cannot imagine doing the Coliseum with the kids any other way. It was fun, engaging for kids and adults and very educational. We went in July and it was VERY hot! Pack extra water if visiting during summer months. The guide taking lots of family pics that were sent to us after at no extra charge was a really nice added bonus. Highly recommend!

    Great day at Monte Cassino
    We had a good tour of the Monte Cassino Abbey and the surrounding WWII battlefields. The guide spoke perfect English and was very friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend it for history buffs.

    Cruise post covid
    The standard of the ship has totally gone down. I travelled 5 years ago on same ship, I though with the reduced prices to get people back after covid id go again. I was so disappointed the food was not as good our breakfast was cold when we told staff all we got was "sorry Mam" not ill go get you a hot one. The plates were plastic terriable. We paid €165 extra for premium plus drinks all we got was sorry Mam not on this floor, ordered Hendrix Gin, they put cheep tonic from tap with it. So dissatisfied. We had to book excursions only through ship rip off some were good including lunch some same price did not include lunch. I felt so restricted on the ship. Entertainment was not as good as previously. In my honest opinion the ship has lost more than 1 star.

    The American Cemetery and Memorial as as beautiffuly maintained as anywhere. Quiet, somber, and moving. Freedom has a price. These men paid it for us all.

    We went on a 7 day cruise to celebrate our 40th anniversary. From embarkation in Barcelona, we were not disappointed. The layout of the ship is very user friendly. We were on the 12th floor and our stateroom was very comfortable. The layoiut and ergonimics is brilliant. Our Stateroom attendant was very friendly and super efficient. She ensured our stateroom was always immaculately clean and gave it attention twice per day. The restaurants and food were of a very high standard and we enjoyed every meal. The breakfast and evening buffets were very enjoyable and the food well prepared and always fresh with huge variety. We dined in both Taste and Manhattan Restaurants a few times. These are non paying fine dining restaurants. The three course meals had variety and very well presented. We had the premium drinks package and this covered all our drinks for the entire cruise. A single malt whisky is included and very good wines. There is an abundance of dispensed water and ice so bottled water is unnecessary. We had one day at sea and this was adequate to explore the ship and enjoy the pools. We watched various shows and these were of a very high standard and very enjoyable. We also really enjoyed the art auction. We were impressed with the numerous hand sanitising stations. One of the biggest assets on this cruise is the very friendly, efficient and professional staff. It made our holiday even more enjoyable. This ship is super organised and this ensures a memorable experience!
