The itinerary was very good; the food was okay. We expected more good Italian food from an Italian line. Pasta dishes were good; pizza was not. We ate mostly in the dining room and had excellent service. Staff couldn't do enough for us and most spoke English. The staff Customer Service desk were difficult to communicate with so we had to wait for an English-speaking host who only had certain hours.
Shows were excellent; no hassling about drinks but service abounded. Extremely clean ship; staff claned constantly. Very accommodating. We had a verandah suite and it was very roomy. Shopping was okay on board, but same old merchandise was displayed except in different areas. Transportation to ports was fine; tenders ran frequently.
We probably would not cruise again on this line as we are very American and the many langauges spoken were somewhat annoying. But that's the price to pay for a foreign cruise line.
Interior designs were overly grandeur and over-the-top Italian!
