Ship was clean. A bit confusing to navigate to get to 3rd floor dining. Our room was quiet.

We enjoyed the balcony. The cleaning crew kept everything clean.

Ship tip

We only speak English and did not run into any language barriers. We were impressed by the number of languages the staff spoke, especially those at the customer service counter!

The excursion to Monaco was long but worth it. Great views along the way. Tour guide and driver were wonderful. However, leaving our first stop we sat on the bus an extra 15 minutes due to a late passenger and another 20 minutes waiting for another passenger, despite the guide warning us against being late. It was wasted time sitting on the bus.
