Cruising Italy – One Not To Be Missed

When cruising to Rome, Italy, I recommend my clients stay at least one day in this wonderful city. Sights including the Catacombs, Coliseum, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps are known worldwide and are just a few of the magnificent sites in Rome. Another great city to visit is Civitavecchia, located two hours north of Rome. Here’s my best tip when planning a cruise that includes Rome: Schedule your Rome sightseeing before or after the cruise. This way you don’t have to rush to visit all of the amazing parts of this fabulous city. This is truly one not to be missed!

Bermuda – Unlike Any Other

Bermuda is unlike any other island of the Caribbean and is definitely worth while to visit.   Located 600 nautical miles off the coast of North Carolina, Bermuda really isn’t a Caribbean destination although it is often grouped in the Caribbean Islands.  Convenient departures from Cape Liberty, New Jersey or New York, New York make for easy passage to this British owned island. Bermuda is a great destination with plenty to do including touring brightly colored gardens, pastel painted houses, quaint villages, and pink sand beaches.  There’s excellent golf and shopping making Bermuda the complete package as a cruise destination.
