Traveled As: Couple

Review SummaryThe ship was lovely---very Venetian in decor and quite elgant. We found the entertainment and shipboard activiites to be lacking in amount and quality. The service was spotty, as was the food quality. Buffet service was poor in that items weren't replenished in a timely manner. Desserts were particularly disappointing---rather bland and lacking variety. Too much jello in most "pies." Staff was often disorganized, though the ship was understaffed in certain areas, which may explain it. Communication was a problem at times, due to the entire serving staff speaking English as a second or third language.
Pros: The ship was beautiful and the cabins spacious and clean.
Cons: Tossup between the food and the entertainment
