My wife and I and another couple are taking the Brillance of the Seas from Barcelona to Villafranche, Livorno, Naples, Venice, Dubrovnik, Coru, Rome back to Barcelona.
The shore excursions booked on board are very expensive. Has anyone taken this cruise before with recomendations about "do-it-ourselves" shore excursions using taxis, day trip companies waiting on shore etc? We would love to go to many of the places offered by RCL, but at a less expensive price.
Any "pros" with suggestions?
