Cucina Del Capitano

It’s definitely worth the surcharge. A lot of food. All of it amazing. Definitely suggest it for formal nights if you aren’t a fan of formal night.

Onboard Activities

Great for a return to cruising. With social distancing they did well with activities. Some activities were missing because social distancing but it is what it is. The activities will be back at some point.

They were all so happy to be back on a ship working. They were also super helpful with my mom who has mobility issues. They did everything they could to help accommodate her

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
They did a lot of work on the ship during the shut down and it was well maintained

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We were in an upper/lower. Though it is the cheapest of the interior cabins, and it was clean. I’m just not a fan of this category. The Pullman berth can be tedious to get in and out of, can be loud, and I honestly hit my head on the frame a couple of times.
