Great ship and staff with innovative and excellent facilities and on board services. Rather pricey cover charges, excursions and drinks etc. Had to pay for too may extras compared with RCI and P & 0 such as for pool tables and 10 pin bowling!

Excursions are pricey for what you get compared with other cruise lines (I thought RCI were expensive!). Cant fault the facilities and the staff as well as the design and layout of the ship itself. 4000 passengers but didn't not feel penned in although busy times in Garden Cafe can be a bit hazardous !

Great shows and did miss the general variety act entertainment in the theatre at first but so much going on, u got used to it and it was different.

Highlights - water slides, plunge pool, rock climbing, bars (not prices though) the Blue man Group (seen it twice) and the circus dining. Must do is the Ice Bar, and not bad value for once. Getting on and off the ship was easy compared to RCI (RCI is a nightmare, it has More to be said). Less

Cabin review: Balcony

Large enough balcony cabin and although a bit small, the balcony itself was handy. Nice touches in room such as coffee maker and fridge (just don't use anything out of it as they are not cheap!)

Port and Shore Excursions

Naples itself is dirty, full of graffiti and full of gangs, avoid it if u can or be very careful.

Very easy to get off and walk into town, a bit of a walk thoough but buses are cheap.

If you get off on your own, research it first as the ships are docked a distance away from entrance.
