The best part about this trip was the shore excursions! Naples and Marseille were our favorites - The best of the Amalfi Coast and A Day in Cassis.  The most unbelievable sights I've ever seen. 


The ship is clean and has everything you could want.  The only downside is that they do charge for most of the restaurants.  Believe me, the extra $15 per person is totally worth it.  The Japanese, steakhouse and Italian were amazing and we went back more than once! Service is far above the dining room.


Only complaint about the ship is for the staff - they do not anticipate needs.  Other than that, they are friendly and prompt.

Great cruise!

The general dining room was unorganized, rushed and poor quality food. All the other restaurants exceeded our expectations!

Ship Tip

Bring a multi outlet plug in (if it is allowed). Only two plugs in the entire room.
Order room service the night before for excursions.

The taste of Sardinia was very authentic and delicious!

The best of the Amalfi Coast is breathtaking! Be weary if you get sick in car/bus - lots of zig zag driving through the mountains...but the view is worth it!

We did the Day in Cassis and fell in love with the fishing port. Take the ferry tour for $12 to see the gorgeous white cliffs and beaches.

Flaminco show was incredible (tapas were not as good) but we enjoyed the old mansion and the ride along the coast. They stopped at a lookout for pictures...amazing!
