We booked this because this was a good value cruise and we had limited choice of dates to go away for but we won't travel with an Italian cruise line again, the standards of professionalism aren't the same as other lines we've been on. ... Read more

Ship very clean and modern, entertainment very good, room service good, evening dining service good. The ship does have some quirks to it. The ship doesn't want you to take a drink that might be half full and bring it to another bar. You ... Read more
