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 Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice room but too much furniture.
Service and Staff
One of the comedians was for adult company but at a children time.
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
We are seniors and kids pool and thrils are not for us. The bars and gambeling did not intrest us.
Destinations and Excursions
Great places to visit and good exccursion contractors.
Barcelona, Spain
Did not take time to look around. Recomend you fly in 1 or 2 days early. this is a great city to see.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
Our second time there.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
the time in Pisa was great but much walking.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Always a great visit.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Amazed at the restored buildings, you would not think there was a war there.
Venice, Italy
St Marks Square is great. Get your own Gondela ride and make sure the operator speakes english. They can provide so much more.
Messina, Sicily
Not Much to see.


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..
