Cabin Type: Balcony

Everyone was very helpful. Did find that too many items were extra and felt it would have been more relaxing if such things as internet and a glass of wine with dinner were included rather than requiring a sales pitch. Guest services were excellent and wait and cabin staff were constantly trying to please us. Some passengers were rude and unpleasant to the staff but they were in a minority would be better to stay home. As each cruise is different maybe the in this tech. age it would be helpful for the entertainment crew to find the average age of the passengers and do age appropriate music. Generally it was a great cruise.

Ship Tip

We purchased a package of seven bottles of wine for the 15 day cruise which lasted us for the duration, a much better deal than the expensive drinks package. We only wanted a glass with dinner each night and would have never got our money's worth from the drinks packages.

Took a local mini bus tour. Caves, World War 2 tunnels and the monkeys. Probably the place with most to see. but least amount of time.

One Italian lesson on the last day was really helpful but could have used more days of lessons.
