Ship was good and new. Had no issues checking in. Now, shore excursions bookings with was a a disaster. We had an excursion to Pompaii and Amalfi Coast. Finding the bus tour was horrible. Once found, felt the need to keep checking I was in the right excursion. will never book an excursion if not directly with the ship.

Excursion with was a disaster. Tour guide was poor, restaurant was below any rating possible, but they did include an ant in the ice cream. Amalfi is nice
Don't Miss: Pompeii is impressive but would have been better with a better tour guide
