Nice buffet, seemed more delicious at lunch and later in the evening, than at breakfast though...Maybe it was me. Kinda same choices every morning - 3/5. Later - 4/5. Pizza - 5/5!

La Cantinella Wine Bar

5 out of 5

Bar itself nothing extraordinary, but there was this spanish man playing and singing - Esteban Piera, goddamn he was great. Singing all the old rock classics from The beatles to Deep purple, Pink floyd and others... We spent wonderful time there.

Room steward was nice young man who did his job very well. The waiter was kinda slow, but that’s ok. Other ship personnel from reception to every lounge and bar were good at their job
