Review summary

We loved the food and service and the Mediterranean itinerary. The only negative was the internet connections. You were routinely thrown off and we couldn’t even load our small local newspaper. Even getting our email was an arduous process.

We basically walked right on the ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We loved the main dining room as well as the specialty restaurants. We loved Waves for lunch.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
I liked the speaker, Adam Tanner, who spoke on a variety of subjects. The unhosted bridge games were in a room with only four tables. It was much too small and should have been held in the Polo Grill like on other ships. Also, would have loved bridge lessons on this ship though there were only two sea days. Also, I would have liked a scheduled Mah Jongg game time or a euchre tournament.

Ports of call

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Loved the hop on, hop off bus. It was very reasonable and you got to see what was available. We also visited the Prince’s car collection. It was well worth the price.

Rhodes, Greece

Limassol, Cyprus

This is the only port we had a truly awful guide. We went to Nicosia which was interesting, but the guide was useless.

We took the Angels and Demons tour and loved it. Beware, though, there was a lot of walking. If you have dreamed of walking all over Rome, this is for you. Also, you will enjoy it whether you have read Dan Brown’s book or not, but read the book beforehand if you go.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
