Multilugal crew was amazing with all announcements in Italian,French, English, German and Spanish. Tours were punctual as was the entertainment. Shows ended with enough time to get to our cabin and cleanup for our seating. Everything was scrubbed and clean. Evening dining was enjoyable, seating was arranged so that you are with people speaking your language. The italian night was great!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food is great and fresh, lunch buffet was sometimes ending if you cleaned up after your tour and didn't head straight to the food line. Water, tea and strong coffee were always available. Wine and water are extra but they have package deals available but we had to ask (they didn't push the package)


5 out of 5
Evening show was good, with time to get back and change before late seating. Early seating has lots of kids
