Very slick operation, with all staff well trained in customer relations. The food choice and quality was excellent. Our room met our needs, although the whole boat is looking a little dated and tired now.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Faultless staff. With one exception of disambiguation at Sicily. Staff told us to go to the port on the shuttle, but we should have stayed beside the ship. We nearly missed our tour because of this. It all turned out ok in the end with a 30 min delay, and ended up being the best tour of the entire cruise.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The whole ship is looking a little tired, but you must be aware of this as you are planning a refit.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The room was clean, a good size and kept in this state by the staff throughout the cruise. My only criticism was it always smelled of cigarette smoke outside the door, and on the balcony.

Ship tip

Look for a cruise with 1 or 2 sea days, so that you Can appreciate the facilities on the ship. The sauna is excellent.

Ports of call

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

Use the opp hop off bus. It goes everywhere you would want to go in Rome

Naples, Italy

5 out of 5
Pompeii has to be done. But be prepared, Italy is full of graffiti and rubbish

Catania, Sicily

Rijeka, Croatia

1 out of 5
Industrial, and not as interesting as the previous stops in Croatia. Stayed on the boat here after reading so many bad reviews.

Koper, Slovenia

5 out of 5
Lake Bled is worth spending more time in, like a long weekend. Not 45 mins. Too far from port to visit really. Ljubljana is a very forward thinking town.

Venice, Italy Did not visit port

End of cruise, and had an early flight home.

Very smooth

Traveler Photos

Cabin 7016 balcony view at sunset. View from upper pool bar Outdoor Cinema at the rear of the ship can get breezy whilst sailing, and can be very hot when in port. Side street restaurants are quietest, and better priced than the main strip. They are also cooler than sitting in full sun. When you visit here you can see why it is the choice of movie makers. Spectacular location View from cabin 7016 looking towards the aft of the ship.
