We're on the Carnival Freedom, August 2nd. Starts in Civitavechhia (Rome), then goes to Naples, Venice for 2 days, Messina, Barcelona, Cannes, and Livorno.
My suggestion is to do your shopping in Livorno. I bought a pair of shoes there for 35 Euros the same shoes in Venice were 79 Euros. Livorno is more a shipping town so the regular italian people shop there. Also if you are not doing a Shore x in Venice I would suggest getting a Venice Card. The orange venice card includes unlimited use of water buses and entrance to some musuems while the Blu Venice card includes unlimited use of water buses but a discount to the museums. Here is the website to buy the card http://www.hellovenezia.com/jsp/en/venicecard/index.jsp. We ordered it on line and picked it up at the train station near the water bus stop.
