Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Excellent food. I only had one incident with the Pinnacle Grill when I found a bug on my dessert plate. I believe it was due to the improper washing of the leaves decorating the dessert plate.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Disappointed and upset that the ship decided to remove all self service laundering which we counting on due to our stay in Italy after the Cruise. All the windows on the ship needed to be cleaned.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The only complaint I have is the cleanliness. The surfaces of the cabin need to be cleaned and disinfected which they were not. My mother and I cleaned and disinfected the phone, table,dresser, television remote, end table and all the door handle.

Ship tip

Be prepared for no self serve laundry and bring some clean and disinfectant Wipes to clean your cabin.
