Review Summary

Had read reviews from previous passengers. Lowered our expectations for food. Good bread and pastries. Had Classic drink package - no prolems. Pizza at wine bar was great - ignore the menu, talk to Rosario, the pizza chef, and tell him what you like. Entertainers in theatre are good dancers, singers and gymnasts. Entertainers at venues are quality performers.

Ship Tip

Do not expect same experience at other lines. This is a family owned, Italian company, not an American company. European venues and attitudes. Most non-US guests.
