Review summary

I would never recommend this cruise for numerous reasons. They treat English speaking people with disrespect. They have outdated décor including old pillows, towels, etc. Always late and they change times without notice of everything. Requested two things on this trip......twin beds and special meal....both took too much time to get finalized. Very unorganized, very............ Continental breakfast every morning as no meals were served fresh. Fruit was not ripe. Frozen most of time. Staff..........well so disappointed. Never smiled!! Announcements were in Italian always first then sometimes we never knew if English coming and never does. Cared only for themselves as never opened or held door open while trying to come thru at same time. Never said thanks for coming as left or gave any verbage last day at all. Charged enourmous fee for transportation when docking was too far to walk. Never free shuttle. So much more!!!!!
