14 night cruise from Venice - great ports and that's about all this cruise had to offer. We had high hopes for this refurbished ship. Besides adding a water park and some more rooms, this ship is circa 1990. The decor is outdated and ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we were naturally a little apprehensive about how we would cope with such a long time on board. Our fears were allayed considerably by the friendliness, courtesy and efficiency of the staff. The ship was ... Read more
