this was our first cruise. We selected this cruise because it was a big band themed cruise. We throughly enjoyed the international flavor with half the passengers coming from Europe. We felt the food was above average, and deffinately Italian. All evening meals were fashioned to exhibit a specific Italian Province. Service in the dining room was friendly, and competent, and the staff promptly adjusted to our desire for full water glasses, once we asked that they keep them full. The ship is committed to cleanliness, as well as a healthful enviornment.
