Average cruise, great ports and expensive excursions

Sail Date: May 10, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was centered around the casino, specialty dining and a costly dinner show.  It seemed we were constantly passing through the casino to get anywhere.  We enjoyed the complimentary dining rooms but found they were seldom open for breakfast and lunch at convenient times.  The specialty dining was over rated and was not worth the extra $30. per person!  Complimentary entertainment was average. This ship lacked anything special compared to other cruise ships.

Our room steward did an outstanding job...Go Reggie!!

booked 3 excusions which were great; Majorica transport from port to town was not needed. Should have been made aware of other options.

Lots of storage. Liked the balcony. Great room steward!
Barcelona, Spain
Stayed 3 nights in the Examplia area and loved it. Felt safe walking day & night.
Naples, Italy
Toured Pompeii and were pleased with our guide and info.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Long tour with lots of walking but well worth the time and effort!
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Very crowded, lots to see, glad we had cool weather.
Cannes, France
Quaint city, great food and friendly people. Did not take a tour and enjoyed a day on our own.
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Least favorite port. Did the On & Off Bus which was ok. Wasted money taking the transportation offered by the ship.


Don't waste your money on specialty dining.
