Excellent staff. It was easy to tell the food quality was superior to other cruise lines we've been on.

Onboard Activities

A bit sparse but that was also expected. The biggest negative was we couldn't dock at a port due to high winds so they changed ports. No problem with the change but when we arrived the wind was again too much to safely dock. They really didn't have a plan "C" so it took a bit of time to coordinate activities.

Amazing to see the leaning tower in person. The wine tasting in Tuscany is severely under sold. What a great excursion. It's not your typical wine tasting. We were taken on a horse drawn carriage tour of the property and we're told about the crops. The wine tasting offered full cups of wine of several different types. But the greatest part was we got to make the bread we'd have with the endless meats and cheeses To go with the wine. More wine, then we made cookies to have with the desert wine. The oven was a real 200+ year old brick oven.
