First book I have ever returned ...
on 20 July 2013
Firstly, the information on cruising was completely out of date ... I think it must have been written 15 years ago - even included references like "don't forget to pack your camera and plenty of rolls of film!". Secondly, there was no useful information about how to get from the port to the main visitor attractions eg the port in Rome (Citavecchia) is an hour or so outside Rome - there is no mention of what the best options are eg train and how long the journey is. No tips on how to avoid queues when time is limited etc - all the important things when time in a cruise port is limited. All this book is a very summarised version of the main European cities - mainly consisting of pictures - I could glean as much information looking at a rack of postcards! I sent this book back and purchased the Rick Stein book which was 100% better.
