It is a cruise more suited for family with kids. My 5 year old son absolutely enjoyed it. After joining us for 2 port outing he opted to stay back at the Splash Academy everyday. Dining at the buffet area is much better than the specialty restaurant in my opinion. Dining staff needs more training.

Service and Staff

Most staff at the specialty dining area seems to be rushing all the time. The Shanghai restaurant staff are the worst. Only one of them cared to attend to us.

It's a hassle getting from the ship to Rome (2 buses then a train)
