Everything was well organized! The staff was very supportive and attentive and helpful and friendly. Food was decent!
But, I think there are several aspects to be improved.
1. when we checked in, the cruise staff sat with chairs but all guests had to stand outside. Some guests were very senior and not convenient to write when standing or bending down. Why did you put chairs for guests? The guest relationship desk was the same. Chairs for staff but no chairs for guests.
2. Sicily tours were very boring. If we could take the cable to view the volcano, it would be interesting. But, the tour did not include the cable and we were not given sufficient time to take the cable by ourselves. It was pity.
3. Santorini is good stop but why no cable ticket? it should be included.
Nothing is perfect. The cruise was good as we expected.
This was our first cruise on an 'upscale' line, so cannot really compare to other 'upscale' cruises. We liked the smaller vessel with less than 700 passengers that could get in to the 'lesser visited' ports. The Windows Cafe was more relaxing (than similar type venues) than on the larger ships, with tables relatively far apart and easier access(less crowded) to the buffet. The staff throughout was very friendly and welcoming. Although only two separate locations (front and rear) the elevators were always prompt and hassle-free. Cabin service was good and unobtrusive. On some days the 'house' white wine wasn't very good, but not undrinkable. Shore excursions always went smoothly, with 18-22 people per tour, a real plus. They really took care of their "Le Club Voyage" (loyalty club) passengers. We had sailed on Celebrity last year so were already Le Club members.
THIS 10 NIGHT AMALFI COAST & ADRIATIC CRUISE WAS OUR FIRST CRUISE TOGETHER AND IT WAS WONDERFUL. THE STAFF ON THE QUEST, CAPTAIN CARL, RUBY (OUR BARTENDER), OUR CABIN STAFF, AND EVERYONE ON THE SHIP WAS WONDERFUL. THE PORTS WERE A PERFECT MIX OF EUROPEAN HISTORY AND CULTURE AND WE WOULD RECOMMEND THIS LINE TO EVERYONE. PERSONAL FAVORITES ARE TAORMINA (CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE OVER AGAIN) AND MONTENAGRO (THE 17 MILE BICYCLE EXCURSION WAS GREAT)......ALSO THE AZAMAZING EVENING WAS BEAUTIFUL. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE CREW AGAIN ON OUR NEXT CRUISE. ED & CATHERINE IANNOTTI

If you fancy getting into a speciality restaurant try to do so soon after getting on the ship as they are popular. Always go to the Azamazing Evening, everyone I've been on has been fabulous.
Tell people to not bring any kind of pocket knife on board. They confiscated (but returned upon disembarkation with some confusion) my husband's that he has been taking on board other cruises for many years. It has a few gadgets--is just a standard Swiss army knife--not a large blade or anything.
A great ship.....plenty of spaces for quite reading, people watching. The library is great.
