I am planning a cruise sailing from Venice via the Greek Islands, Turkey and finish up in Rome. Can anyone offer some advice which side of the ship would it be better to have a Balcony Cabin? so we can enjoy the great view of the ports.
My wife and I sailed from Venice to Croatia, Athens, Santori and back to Naples and on to Rome. The port side would be the best on the cruise down the Grand Canal.
You get a terrific view of St. Mark's Square. From there the port side remains the side of choice until you head back to Rome. You will be coming up the left side of Italy and the starboard would be preferable.
Hope that helps...
