This week, Mikey Faust of mikeyscruiseblog.com tells us all about his first Mediterranean cruise where he visited the ports in Civitavecchia (Rome), Genoa, Barcelona, Corsica, Palma de Mallorca, and Sardenia. He gives us his view on how the Mariner of the Seas works in the Mediterranean, as well as how a European cruise compares to a Caribbean one. Our news includes stories of an accident which occured on a shore excursion and a new government regulation which may cause an increase in cruise pricing.
This week we look at the large variety of drink packages offered on the mainstream cruise lines. We also talk about the rules and regulations for what beverages you can actually bring on the ship. Cruise news features the resignation of Celebrity CEO, Dan Hanrahan, and the coming revitalization of the Piraeus port in Greece.
Our favorite cruise region, the Mediterranean, is the highlight this week as we talk about some preconceived notions and popular attractions in each port. Then, we talk about our personal favorites in each port and what to look out for. Cruise news features Norwegian Cruise Lines announcement about the Norwegian Breakaway and the fate of the Queen Elizabeth 2 in Dubai. We also discuss the lawsuit concerning the new cruise terminal in Charleston.
