7 Night Western Mediterranean (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 06, 2007
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was beautiful but the plan made it difficult to find the areas. I think more maps of the plan need to be posted. Our cabin with balcony was large and very comfortable as was the bath. I thought the personel did very well considering the crowded conditions and the rudeness of many of the passengers. I think the ship caters to the average European family and some less classy types of tourists. Of course there were lovely people on board too.. There were many children and sometimes they played in the halls late at night. The noise level was high. The food was not great but seem to improve as the week went on.
I really appreciated having a chapel and masses on the ship.

We enjoyed the open double decker tour bus and the restaurants in the town
Don't Miss: The tour bus was very good

It was interesting to walk into the town. I do think the ship should provide information in English about the towns and interesting sites . There was not enough for the English speaking people. The Info was provided while the tours were being conducted and then It was too late.
Don't Miss: The shops and the streets are so intersting and lovely.

The tour guide's english was not good. He was not pleasant and was even rude when asked a question of concern because the bus was having engine problems. It wasn't his fault the bus brke down but he didn't handle it well. I reall would not go back even to see Carthage.
