Review summary

We also enjoyed the "day at sea" which came in the middle of the voyage. Allowed us to leasurely enjoy the ship. By the way, we were only on the ship for the 1st 7 days. We got off in Rome. Did not know there was also a 14-day cruise.

Small ship map provided was a life-saver.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Had both a shower and bath tub. Could have gotten rid of the separate shower (shower head also in the tub) to save room.

Ship tip

Be sure to sign up early for the 4 "special" dining venues.
