Great service, good ports, average cruise

Sail Date: August 26, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The service staff was excellent and the dining room food was very good. The specialty restaurant, Giovanni, was outstanding. The buffet was average or less. There was a good mix of age groups and nationalities. This made it difficult to cater to the needs of everyone in the selection of food choices, activities and entertainment. Most activities were suited to the younger passengers. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Great service from Francisco. Lots of cabinet and closet space.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very, very efficient
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Zadar could be left off of the itinerary. The other destinations were very good. We did not do ship excursions.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Dining room food was very good. Buffet was average. Dining room staff, Leonard, Jarbson and head waiter, Jose, were outstanding.


If you get a cabin on the 2nd or 3rd deck make sure to ask for mid-ship to avoid some of the noise of docking.
The specialty restaurant package of 3 was a good deal. Giovanni's was our favorite.
