Review summary

We were a little disappointed in the sports of call. Rhodes was the best and Santorini was cool, the rest of the Greek ports were in ruins. Pompeii was excellent.

Boarded at Civetvecchia near Rome. Easy process, took about 30 minutes. Very nice cruise terminal.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dined mostly in main dining room. Food was better than average and service was excellent. The Windjammer buffets on all of RCL are basically Golden Corrals at sea, so we tend to avoid them.

Ship tip

Take the time to explore the ship, check out the restaurants and enjoy the amenities. The on board shopping was pretty poor, but it almost always is.
