Hello. I am also known as Scarecrow on the Dibb. Bats has already posted some info from me. Here's a link to a thread that I started over here, where I picked up loads of info for my own Med trip back in 2011. Sadly I won't be cruising with DCL this summer, but I may see some of you across the ocean, when I'm on the Sunshine. The info only includes previously visited Med ports not the new ones. I am eagerly awaiting trip reports that include Venice, as I will be there on 07/28/13. Enjoy. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2868717 I can honestly say that all of the ports are easy to do on your own. Just bear in mind that you will not see as much as you would with either a ships tour or a private tour. If you want to see as much as possible then book private tours. There are a number of shared tours already set up for some of the Magic's sailings on the shared tours romeinlimo limo. http://www.romeinlimotoursharing.com/. This might be the way to go for some of you who want to do it all. My best trip was Capri. There are wonderful shoes for sale there that cost 300 euros. One day when I have won the lotto I will return to purchase those shoes.
