Main Dining Room

5 out of 5

Booking Staff Paola was excellent. Waiting staff were brilliant and helpful and friendly.

Oceanview Cafe and Bar

4 out of 5

Bit manic at times but the variety was good. Is there a better way of servicing drinks. Couldn’t catch staffs eye to order drinks.

Cafe al Bacio and Gelateria

4 out of 5

Al Basil was good but not the gelateria. The staff on this counter did not know that a captains club member got a free “1” gelato per cruise!! It was tiny and an embarrassment!

AquaSpa Cafe

3 out of 5

Adequate, needs more choice and drinks need topping up regularly

Onboard Activities

Lovely Jacuzzis

Food space, beds tightly packed but pleasant. Only gripe is that people “booked “ their bed very early and seldom returned at all! Other people could have had their beds


4 out of 5

Nice pool, not very big but adequate.

Good variety. We enjoyed the more English entertainers as the last 2 cruises we have been on were American entertainers and not very good. Thought the entertainment manager was excellent.

Sky Observation Lounge

3 out of 5

Nice space and views but the daily quizzes were in here and people were still taking up seats so participants had to rest on sides to write. Not the best area for this

Celebrity Theater
