Food and Dining
Quality and service have really gone down the last 5 years. it's not the staff's fault, they cut back in staff and the service is very slow and the foodwas always served luke warm or cold.
Ship Quality
The "production' Shows are all perrecored and it's awful. It's actually painful for me to watch these "pretenders" prance around on stage. the piano bar was fun , but the guitar player was on break more than he was playing. enteratainment needs improving.
Cabin / Stateroom
Veranda Suites are very nice.
Service and Staff
Naples, Italy

Don't Miss: really a dirty, littered place. doesn't look too good
Barcelona, Spain
see Gaudi's stuff
Monte Carlo, Monaco
go by foot, easy to get around
Palermo, Sicily
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
valldemosa if you are into music- Chopin stayed there
La Goulette (Tunis & Carthage), Tunisia
A real snoozer. Take the camel ride by the ship.
Don't Miss: they really pester you with the souveneers and prices
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
lucca and pisa- great tours.
