Review summary

We will do another cruse on this cruise line. Loved eating and when finished, no checks or tips. Also loved the Business Class flights to and from. We never felt over crowded.

Went very smooth. The ships representatives met us at the car, took our bags and guided us through the boarding process. It took no more than 20 minutes at the most.

We attended all the shows. They were all very good, especially John, the cruise director/comedian/ singer. We played name that tune and trivia. The time on board went very quickly. My wife and I also used the SPA services. Wonderful.

Cabin / Stateroom

Beds were comfortable and plenty of closet space. Had breakfast in the room several times while getting ready for a shore excursion. It was great to just sit on our private deck watch the shore or what ever was there.be

Dubrovnik, Croatia

5 out of 5
Toured Dubrovnik. This was a Communist Country that is now a Democracy. They are really thriving. Enjoyed seeing this country.

Koper, Slovenia

Another Communist Country turn Democracy. The tour guide pointed out that they are thriving and it looked that way.

Venice, Italy

5 out of 5
Stayed extra time here. The ship was later getting into port because of fog. Venice closed the port. Not really a big fan of Venice. Hard to get around. Most of the tours were cancelled, but they opened more places on a Gondola Ride, se we got to do that.
