Default Back from our 17 day Med and Transatlantic Cruise on Star Pr

We have returned after our 17 day cruise on the Star Princess. We made stops in the Med and those were: Starting from Civitavecchia we put in at Naples, Livorno, Genoa,Cannes, France, Barcelona,Cartagena,Gibraltar,Cadiz and then Funchul Madeira before returning to Port Everglades.

The cruise was great. Food, Entertainment, Lodging and Services were outstanding.

We encounted the Virus soon after sailing but the Captain and crew was outstanding in preventing it from spreading. Only had less than 100 who were infected. I commend the Captain and Crew for this noteable care they gave us. Helen and I were not effected.

I have placed a few pictures in the Gallery for your review if you wish. Lot of the photos were taken from a moving bus so they are not as good as they should be. We only took 1 tour that was to Nice, France and believe it my battery for the camera went dead. Dumb me I did not bring an extra along.

In all we had a wonderful time and hated to disembark.
