Wasn't all it cracked up to be.

I've been on much better cruise lines. We had to pay for everything (even water) and the food was subpar. Marseille France and Olbia Sardinia were the worst ports. There was absolutely nothing to do their. Limited entertainment. Average age of guest was 70. Overall, we had to make our own fun (on and off the boat).

Food and Dining
Horrible if you have a refined pallet and know what good food taste like.
Service and Staff
They were lovely and welcoming.
Cheap low budget shows. Casino is OK. Night club full of senior citizens or empty. Karaoke was cool but they only did it twice (not every night).
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Overpriced for what they were. A 40 Euro trip to the beach thats in walking distance
Ship Quality
A little old. Cabins can use a makeover
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was great. Disembarkation was a nightmare. They held us in the theater for hours and ran old video from Americas funniest Videos.
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean but needed an upgrade
La Spezia (Cinque Terre), Italy
Marseille (Provence), France
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Ibiza, Balearic Islands
Olbia, Sardinia
Salerno (Amalfi Coast), Italy
Theres nothing to do in Salerno. Take the 16 Euro ferry boat over to Amalfi. Well worth it. I attached the photo below


Buy the drinks package or sneak liquor on board. Buy water at every port. The free vending water taste horrible and water at dinner is 3 Euros
