Not too bad if you can put up with kids and Europeans with a mixed bag of different languages and attitudes. Service is great compensating for some of the flaws and annoyances. The ship itself is awesome with great interiors.

Study the layout and find out how to get from one place to another - our cabin was in the back and to get to the middle of the ship, you couldn't walk thru the dining rooms.

TRY TO BOOK A CABIN IN THE CENTER OF THE SHIP. IT IS A VERY LONG SHIP. WE DID NOT GO TO THE SPECIALTY RESTAURANT. THERE WAS VERY GOOD FOOD IN THE DINING ROOM. THE SPECIALTY RESTAURANT IS A PART OF THE BUFFET DURING THE DAY. IT COULD HAVE BEEN A BIT MORE EXCLUSIVE. THERE ARE 2 STANDARD DINING ROOMS, SAME FOOD, BUT THE LA FONTAINE SEEMED CLASSIER.

Use the buffet right at the back of the boat through the busy noisy part, where it’s calmer

Italian hospitality is distinguished by its confidentiality without losing attention to the quality of service

The balcony gives you the option of a place away from the crowds. Choose first sitting for dinner, second sitting starts at 9.30, meaning you start eating around 10pm.

Do not get excited about the food! Only basic shampoo and shower gel in your cabin so take your own.

Book a Balcony cabin like we did. It's well worth the extra money. Take advantage of all the facilities on board and if you're fit, explore each port. There is such variety.

You'll have a fabulous time- take note of whether your cabin number is odd or even and you won't get lost!

They upcharge for everything (ice cream, movies, etc) so be prepared to spend some extra cash.

The Jucuzzi's are not hot and are way too small. There should be many more and hotter. Even the ones in the Spa are not hot at all. I was willing to pay extra, but when I checked if they were hot- they were not.

As the cafeteria is only open 20 hours per day, familiarise yourself with its timings to avoid disappointment.

Roll back and enjoy yourself. The lines are not large and shore excursions are pleasent.
