Ship Quality

1 out of 5
layout horrible only place to walk around outside was on decks 15 and higher unlike the getaway or breakaway where you can go out on multiple levels and walk around outside near restaurants on deck 5/6 and another I think this ship epic on outside space is 15 and above Guess thats why they only built one of these types of ship and then went to breakaway/getaway / escape

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
just perfect size for an inside cabin lots of storage space UNCOMFORTABLE BED VERY HARD

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

after walking Rome and Pompei just laid back and relaxed today, a leaning tower or art didn't really excite us!
