The Holiday Inn Venice-Mestre Marghera is close to several bars and restaurants in Mestre and 9km from Venice city centre. We recently travelled to Venice and recommend indulging in a gelato cone while strolling around the winding canals and taking in the views across the water at the beautiful St Mark's Basilica.
The 2012 Berlitz Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships calls the Norwegian Jade a ship with "ample facilities for enjoyment". Entertainment options include a 3-tiered theatre, which hosts shows and cabaret, a casino and a good mix of bars and lounges, many of which feature dancing and live music. The ship also has Freestyle Dining, so guests can choose when, where and with who they eat. Options include Alizar and Grand Pacific, the two main restaurants, Cagney's Steak House and the French-inspired Le Bistro (extra charges apply).
A similar sailing to Croatia and Turkey is available for the same price on 21 September and 5 October.
