I would be remiss if I did not begin this review with a warning to avoid transferring flights between Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris and Marco Polo in Venice. I've traveled world-wide and have not found the degree of ineptitude that pervades CDG.
Next, I would warn anyone with mobility issues to avoid the port of Venice unless you are prepared to spend upwards of two hours waiting to be transferred to the ship. If you cannot walk down several flights of stairs, this port may not be for you. If there was another way, we were not shown it.
Now for the voyage:
Great location right in the center of the ship. It was not noisy at all. Plenty of storage space, though the new sinks take away counter space in the bathroom. Bad smell from a mechanical problem the ship could not seem to get a handle on.
