We are going to Meditarranean on Voyager, Rome to Barcelona. It's our first time on Radisson. How are their shore excursions? It's a pretty big ship with 700 passengers, and it's a concern. Advantage is that they have more variety of tours. Do they fill up the buses to capacity? Do they have water available in buses? Do they run as class excursion as Silversea?
Busses usually only half full. Water alwasy available. Usually provide free shuttle busses port to town center. Do not take all day excursion to Capri. Otherwise, I have never been disappointed in a radisson excursion.
If you want to do individual tours, here are a couple of people that we used in November, 2001 and they were wonderful. Jaimie does a walking tour of Barcelona that lasts as long as you would like and he meets you at Quay where you dock. We use Romalimo in both Florence and Rome, two couples in a Mercedes van and we had a fabulous time.
