Review summary

I took my wife, adult children and grandchildren on this Med cruise The ship is tired and had too many passengers 2560 compared to the official capacity 2170. No extra staff. Thus service was slow at times and cleanliness in public areas left a little to be desired. Open dining was a nightmare. Fortunately bumped into hotel manager who resolved our issues above and beyond expectations The grandchildren had a ball and loved every minute. Left their parents alone so they could enjoy the cruise TBH I had no expectations so I was not disappointed
