Western Mediterranean Cruise Port Tips

  • Worried about a language barrier? Don’t. Most people speak English or at least enough English to communicate with you easily. 
  • Wear comfortable shoes because you will be doing a lot of walking. Streets can be quite dirty, so closed toe shoes would be a good choice. 
  • Use a money belt or small purse that can be carried across the body or under your clothing. You will most likely need to take your Passports and ID with you and the last thing you want to lose is your identity. 
  • Be prepared to buy water or bring it with you when you leave the ship. If you do purchase bottled water at one of the ports of call be sure you know the difference between sparkling and natural (still) water!
  • If you choose to dine at a restaurant while at port, understand that gratuities are generally already included in your bill.
  • Have small Euro coins on you at all times. Bathrooms are not always free. Having coins will come in handy if you have to pay a fee.
