Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We did 2 specialty restaurants Giovanni‘s table as well as 150 Central Park and the food was exceptional as well as the service. However we were turned away twice from the Windjammer which is the main buffet, & the only time we ate there was after dinner hours I didn’t even get a chance to do breakfast there at all because of the crowds . The main dining room was our “go to” for most meals and each night we requested the same server because he was so good and the food was exceptional. I am vegetarian and all my options were clearly visible and made known to me. Our servers in the dining room had our names from the first night on. Great food and great service except for the Windjammer

I really wanted to go zip lining but when I found it, I was disappointed to see how small it was 85ft which amounted to maybe a 3 second zip. I wanted to film it too which I was told was not an option so I passed🤷‍♀️

I ordered free breakfast👍 room service three days. It was in time and very convenient . Our room steward was friendly and professional. I can’t say enough about the quality of food and service in the Speciality Restaurants and Main dining room.

Ship tip

Do your homework

Ports of call

Barcelona, Spain

5 out of 5
Sagrada Familia was incredible and Park Guell fascinating. Make sure you take the shuttle that’s included because the walk is a 45 min gruelling uphill climb from the Sagrada.

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands

Drach Caves -Wow ! Beautiful and able to take tons of pics. Ended with a Classical concert in 2 row boats with Two violinists, a cellist and a harmonium player. I had a tear run down my cheek -exceptional♥️

Marseille (Provence), France

4 out of 5
Great Port and had a 2 1/2 hr walking tour to see the sights but MuCem was closed so a little disappointed but they added a chocolate factory which was nice

La Spezia, Italy

Took a 2 hour ride into Florence so we could tour The Uffizi Gallery. Incredible art work and sculptures Wow!

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

3 out of 5
We had chosen to do “Rome on your Own” Wish I had been more prepared. There was supposed to be maps but there weren’t any & we ended up getting lost and going around in circles and I only saw the Colosseum and the forum in five hours -missed the Trevi & the Spanish steps and so much more😳 I was disappointed and it was cold and rainy which didn’t help. We ended up taking a taxi back to our meeting place . I would’ve really really liked a map next time I’ll get my own and not rely on others

Naples, Italy

We took a ferry to Capri and rented scooters! Was fantastic but the roads have hairpin turns and very narrow. Booked through Oasi Motors and we rented a guide too ...EXCEPTIONAL! We saw parts of the island we never would have on our own. Great Excursion.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We bought The Key and they had a very nice breakfast for us in the Main Dining room last day. Disembarkation was quick and all our luggage was available as well as taxi service back to the airport
