Review summary

The cruise was a great experience on how other parts of the world live and how they got started hundreds of years ago. Fun on shore and fun on the ship for a great trip. Better evening shows would be a great thing to look foreword to in the evening. The airline lost one of four bags we checked but with constant checking by the cruise line the stray bag caught us at the third port. I wish I had been all the places that bag went. The hamburger and French fry stand on deck nine by the pool was the best place for lunch.

Ship tip

If you don't want to gain 15 lb. on the cruise eat dinner in the deck 3 dining room and if you want to taste several entrees have them as starters. Same taste but less quantity The less time you spend in the buffet's the les you will carry home..

St Marks Square is great. Get your own Gondela ride and make sure the operator speakes english. They can provide so much more.
