Review summary

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).

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).
