Default Nice pics, but now I'm depressed

We just left the Noordam last week after a wonderful 10 days on the western Mediterranean. Great ship, great crew. My regret is not also booking for the eastern leg. Thanks for the pics so we can see some of what we missed.

I had been under the impression that Monte Carlo was a tender port for our upcoming Noordam cruise. I see that was not the case for you. Can you tell me for which of the Western ports were tender used?
Thanks!

Default Western Med. ports

None of the ports were tender ports, although some the locations we berthed at were a fair distance from town and required shuttles(small fee - 10.00-12.00 US pp return).

Great choice for our first HAL ship! We were quite impressed with the ship layout and decor,service,food, and the beautiful flower arrangements.
DH was happy with the free Internet/Camera classes and I enjoyed some of the culinary demonstrations.
