Review Summary

Old wolrd charm, elegant features, superb service, wonderflul crew. Our room was the perfect size with a lounge chair on our patio and recently remodeled. There was a plasma screne TV with a DVD player. Rentals of over 1000 movies was free To prevent sickness, the meals were mostly served at the buffet which prevents you from pigging out and really enjoying the food. So much better than our last cruise 2 months ago on another cruiseline Despite bad weather the captain and crew were very accomodating.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We average 3 to 4 cruises a year and this was by far the best food we ever experienced. Incredible desserts Only thing we missed was the soft serve ice cream machine that was available 24 hours on the other cruise lines
