More than enough eating places, even though we did not try the speciality restaurants due our strict diest, we only heard good reports. As for the dining rooms, we took anytime dining, and could not have been easier or more pleasant. No more than a few minutes wait and we always had excellent service and well presented tasty food. Due my wife being vegetarian, we also ate in the Horizon Court. Tasty and plentiful food almost 25 hours a day, again with good attentive service.
For the most part the crew/staff were more than friendly and personal once they became to know us.
I personally would have liked more poolside activities, but due only 3 sea days with one having high winds it was understandable.The Movies under the Stars, with small touches like popcorn, really made the day. We did not try the other outdoor eating venues, such as poolside grill, pizza parlour, but like to check the cafe in the piazza to see what daily offerings were on hand.Always something different.
We had decided that we would enjoy the cruise part of the trip as opposed to the land excurions, since for us we have visited many of the places, and due closeness to us it is easy to return to those interesting places if we should want to do so.So at all ports we only walked around the port of call fo a few hours, except for Livorno where we had arranged a private tour to Cinque Terre
Pros: The itinerary, ship, different dining venues and times
Cons: For me the number of ports.
