We were very disappointed in the dining experience,charging for water and coffee.The breakfast buffet was a big disappointment,powdered eggs,rude people,rationed coffee.
At dinner our waiter was horrible, never smiled,would not substitute food items on the menu.We had the loudest,obnoxious Italians next to us! The food was mediocre, not very Italian.They put the bright lights on after dessert...signal to leave?
The shows were okay,the entertainment in the lounges was boring. The ship's stores and spa were a rip-off.The casino was the usual filled with smoke,not too crowded.
I was embarassed( being of Italian descent )by the rudeness of the Italians on board. I think Sophia Loren would be appalled.....afterall she did christen this ship.The best part of our trip was after the cruise 3 days in Venice...oh we did have great weather!
