The ship was gorgeous...much more than I ever expected. My last cruise was in 1979 - went to the Caribbean. All I can say is "time have changed." The ship was beautifully appointed and very well maintained. The mosaic tile work was incredible. Just everything!!!!

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

I've never seen so much food in my life! Wow! And beautiflly prepared and presented. We ate at the early seating in the Amalfi - beautiful!

Entertainment

5 out of 5
I was stunned at the quality of the talent and the productions! I come from many years in the television (variety tv and talk shows - I was a Casting Director) - the quality of the talent, the costumes and the productions, in general, were fabulous!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
What can I say about the staff - you pick the "most attractive, nicest people from all over the world" - what could be better. They went out of their way to make everyone comfortable. Amazing!!! We loved our waiters in the Amalfi - Alex and Christina - the absolute best! And our room steward, Darwin was also amazing! Thanks so much for making outstay perfect!
