Overall dated but very well kept ship. Staff for the most part are amazing but many ancillary services (Guest Services: Poor) not living up to customer focus.

Great European cruise by chipper1072

Overall it was a great experience. The cruise allows you to see a lot of Europe and explore what you might want to go back to. We love the cruise experience b/c it also allows one place to unpack rather than living out of a suitcase for the week.

Great Ports but the Cruise itself is lacking by lidiaribeiro1

Our dining experience was great and the ports of call are very good. Halloween night was incredibly fun too. Other than that, there is much to improve on this cruise ship. I'm glad I had a chance to visit these ports, but wish I had chosen a different cruise line.

Great trip on a small ship by rscola2014

A great itinerary starting in Venice and ending up in Barcelona with just 2 sea days which were used to rest from the port intensive cruise. The food was fine with some meals being better than the others, but all were fine.

Venice and Athens were memorable by ez4u2c22006

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
The absolute worst display of unorganized chaos -- not the ship's fault that fog caused an 8 hour delay -- the chaos was the way they tried or didn't try to fix the problem. Main dining room had terribly SLOW service and mediocre food. The Buffet was superb. Guest relations is understaffed and NEED TO BE RELOCATED - to an area not near the LOUD music.

If you need a smoking area, the 3rd deck has lots of chairs and the 9th floor behind the pool has about 10 tables (with enough chairs).

The Windjammer cafe can get crowed, so be early if you want to get a table.

Morning coffee with a few people each morning on deck outside Windjammer. Enjoyed self serve ice cream on deck outside Windjammers. My wife and grandson loved eating snack or lite lunch at Park Café in Solarium.
