Overall Member Rating
Great first RC cruise
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Gave my attendant a nice tip which I think helped with quick service entire trip and I replenished that
regularly . Cabin was very clean , spacious and bed very comfortable.
I am non meat eater and thus had limited choices- all fish was overcooked and dry was very disappointed over all with the cuisine even with the specialty restaurants of which we tried them all .
The only one I enjoyed was Izumi because I could cook my own seafood on hot rock.
Ports were great and we did private tours at all of them except Ravenna and Venice. My friend had her phone stolen More Rome tour so be careful. I had a special bag from Travelsmith that has straps which can't be cut and zipper compartments which lock .
I booked my trip through Noe at Vacations to go and had a 600 dollar on board credit which was great because I left ship after 12 days owing only 5 dollars
Fellow passengers were overall very nice almost all spoke English - we shared the dinner table with charming family from Ireland and did several of our tours with great English couple.
Too many children on ship for my taste and the pool was overrun with screaming little ones.
They need a separate pool for adults only.
So that's a quick review hope its helpful esp for novice cruisers like myself. Less
