Review summary

Overall a good cruise. MDR did a great job entertaining. Hosted a toga party on the last night and formal nights were fairly respected by the passengers. Food quality was fairly high - Mediterranean flare. Superb cruise director.

Before the age of electronic boarding. We had no status so had to wait in long lines.

A little stand off-ish - not as accommodating as other lines. Some language barriers at customer service EXCEPT - The cruise director was a phenomenal polyglot. Fun just watching her communicate in 6 languages
