Hi! Can anyone tell me what we can expect to see on days at sea in the Mediterranean. The Celebrity Galaxy will cruise Rome to Naples to Mykonos to Santorini to Sicily to Villefranche to Genoa and back to Rome. For those who have been this route, can we expect to see wildlife like whales or dolphins (I've never been on a big cruiseliner so don't know if this is a stupid question and if we go way to fast to even see these things) or other islands? Thanks
We've not done this particular route, but have done several Med. cruises (and will do again on Millie in May) and if memory serves correctly, the only Island that I actually remember seeing while cruising was off Sicily - it was Stromboli - the volcano was really active the first time we cruised by - and it was late in the evening: beautiful sight......Can't specifically remember whales or anything - but we were so beat after spending days on shore excursions that we weren't really looking!
If your ship docks in Sicily (Messina?) - do try and get to Taromina (rough spelling, I know) but it is a really neat place to visit - there's not much to see in Messina - but there is a lovely park close by where the ship may dock....
You've booked a wonderful cruise and it sounds like a fabulous itinerary - and while we've never cruised on Galaxy - we can speak well about Celebrity! The best. (You WILL be treated "famously"!)
