Overall we had a great week and so glad we booked a balcony on the Port side. If you have any doubts do it as there are loads of kids on board and this gives you a chance for some peace and quiet. We like kids but they are allowed to run riot in the Windjammer cafe and pool area. We were also very disappointed with the adult pool section on board, it was too small and felt crammed in like sardines. Dress code nights were disappointing as this was not adhered to in the dining rooms, they let people in with shorts and T shirts! Also they pander to large parties and in the main the 3 of us were put on tables near the clearing stations. Service was either overbearing so that you could not enjoy your food without being interrupted and asked questions or simply non existent if sat between two large parties. Breakfast is best served in your cabin (always on time) or Promenade Cafe if you want to get away from the food scramble in Windjammer. However be prepared for average food everywhere, Windjammer is like being at School Dinners. Main dining room food never really comes up to expectations from description on menu but overall OK. The ports of call were fantastic especially waking up in the bay of Villefranche. However do your homework before leaving...and don't believe everything that RC tell you. In Marseille they advised there could be a problem with taxis due to number of cruise ships in...so we bought tickets for the scenic boat shuttle. There were loads of taxis and the boat shuttles were late leaving from the dock area and Marseille which meant we lost a lot of time just waiting in line. In Villefranche be prepared for a long line for train tickets - at least 30 to 45 mins in height of summer. Pompeii - chap on the coach was brilliant and gave us some great info even though we had only booked transportation. Be prepared for long wait for entry tickets cutting out 30 mins of our 2.30 visiting time. The biggest plus is the entertainment crew...could not fault them and the shows were amazing especially Sat Night Fever. Musicians were exceptional including the LiBerty of Seas Orchestra, Fresh Beat and Dave Curtis in the Piano Bar he was mesmerising! Well done guys. Not much in the way of entertainment during the day for adults unless you are a bingo, art auction or spa fan all of which cost extra money. Perhaps RC should think about the adults who are paying the money to be on board and giving them some thought instead of more activities for kids who are already well catered for. Overall great holiday mainly down to ports of call and entertainment crew.   Read Less

Ship - Plenty of room for everyone. Very clean and lots to do. The swimming pools were cold so we enjoyed the hot tubs. Food - Food is Windjammer was mediocre. Food in dining room was really good. Fish and shrimp dinners were good. We didn't spend the extra money on the specialty dining, we were happy eating in dining room. Our waiter and assistant waiter were very good. Ports - We loved all the ports. We did shore excursions on our own and especially liked Rome and the Amalfi Coast. We used Miles and Miles which is an excellent tour agency. Cabin - We had an outside cabin with window which seemed small at first but we got used to it. It was clean and our cabin steward was really good. Embark and Disembark - Everything went smoothly...no problems. Shows - The ice show and cirque de soleil shows were very good. Read Less
