Review summary

Meraviglia is truly an amazing ship. She is a very smooth riding vessel. I felt it was easy to get around and never really got lost. I absolutely loved the Mall...went there every night after dinner and people watched! There are a lot of different nationalities on board which makes it hard to communicate.

Hubby is in a scooter so we usually get right through.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food in the MDR room was not something I eat. Hubby had many delicious dinners. With so many nationalities, they have to have a variety on the menu. Buffet food was always hot and a lot of choices.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We didn't participate in any activities.


We did not attend shows or entertainment

Children's Programs

No children with us.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Waiters were nice, but food was slow coming from the kitchen. Never met/saw our room steward. Bar servers were pleasant and eager to serve.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This ship was spotless. With all the chrome, glass and windows, they were always cleaning them! Ship always had a nice fresh clean smell.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Balcony cabin that slept 4 (only 2 of us) Basically enough space. We had a scooter and still had room (not much) to move around.

Ship tip

Be patient....not everyone can be first. Always say "please" and "thank you". Crew members, no matter what position work very hard to make sure you have the best experience. Don't let negative comments turn you away. Everyone has their own wants/needs. Just enjoy being on a beautiful ship with a lot to offer.

Did early walk off and the line was very long. Could have more crew giving direction, would be less confusing and stressful
