The ship offers plenty of activites for those who are not interested in going ashore. Food is usally good to excellent, but stay away from Johnny Rockets where the food quality has dropped dramatically from the the prior five times we sailed with this similar type ship. They now charge for Johnny Rockets and it is overall a very poor value. They have added Ben and Jerrys ice cream but charge for that as well. As with most Royal Caribbean cruises you typically feel you are nickel and dimed for items that should be included in the fee for taking the cruise. The drink sticker, while usually an okay value, did not work out as well this year as the drinks were almost always flat. Nonethless, the ship provides an overall good value for all the ports. We highly recommend the Imperial Rome tour and the Pompeii tour. Do not buy any items from the Vatican gift shop when the tour ends as you can find the identical items on the ship that night for 70% less! If you want to go ashore on a tender day leave early as lines can get very long.

Don't Miss: Pompeii
Don't Miss: Colleseum and St. Peter's Basillica.
Pros: The itinerary, while busy, is perfect for those who want to get the fullest flavor of Europe in 7 days. The staff is usually very courteous and there is rarely a shortage of things to do.
Cons: Be careful of the tender service in Nice. The seas can get very choppy and some people on our ship were injured going from the tender back into the ship. The Captain did respond by giving everyone on the cruise free drinks for the night. We were disappointed in the quality of some of the shows.
