Firstly, the boarding procedure in Dubai was pathetic. We arrived early on day of boarding and being in a Concierge cabin expected prompt handling. The check in took over two hours standing for the understaffed to process us on to the ... Read more

This is my first review, and as I have only just returned home from the overnight flight from Singapore the memories should still be fresh, and hopefully be of some use if you are considering either this cruise, or this cabin. I know there ... Read more

We looked forward to this cruise for several reasons but especially because it gave us the opportunity to cross off several "bucket list" items. The embarkation process in Rome was easy and quick. The ship, one of the newest in the fleet ... Read more

This was an astounding cruise and an interesting mix of exotic ports and many days at sea. The embarkation process was smooth in Barcelona and we were quickly aboard. The cruise started well with a celebratory glass of champagne as we ... Read more

We decided to go to Venice and Florence for a pre-cruise vacation prior to embarkation. Venice was as magical as we remembered and our stay at the Locanda Orseolo was perfect. This was our second stay, and the owners and staff are the ... Read more
