Good cruise,good entertainment, quality of food can be improved. Too much bread and waste. Terrible coffee. offer a pass for the specialty coffee just like the soda. Did excursions in all ports. All excursions were good except in Venice. Guide was terrible, many guests got lost and guest had difficulty locating gondola ride. The guide never counted how many in her group. Every time she stops, she should count the number of guests !!!!! Her sign should be more visible and can be located easily if one is lost. Not worth the money.
