Review summary

Pretty underwhelming. I think I have gotten too used to Viking, where many things are included, like wine and beer and excursions. When you add that up, it's worth the extra money.

Embarkation

2 out of 5
Venice was flooded, so they bussed us to Trieste. I understand, but they made no effort to communicate the change or give information

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Food was VERY so-so. The pizza at the buffet was the best part. Few selections at dinner. I did appreciate that there were a few decent Belgium beers available.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
A standard gym. Bought husband the spa experience with daily access to steam room and hot tubs. They were not great. I did very uch enjoy Yanti, with whom I had three massages!
