First I have to say that this ship is by far the cleanest ship we have ever been on. It is also one of the glitziest ones with its Swarovski staircase in the centrum. Beautiful decor throughout the use of marble and glass is very tasteful ... Read more

As an American I thought going on a European cruise would be a good change of pace, didn't realize what I was getting myself into. I expected this cruise to be more subdued than others I have been on such as the Mexican Riviera for the ... Read more
