This trip was my first time overseas, and I traveled with 3 other people. 3 of us stayed in a Jr. Suite, which was very comfortable. A very large closet, and full size bathtub, more than enough storage for 3 women! A wonderful balcony of the Starboard side with 4 chairs and a table, which we used everyday! The ship has recently been refurbished, and I found it to be quite nice. My one complaint about the new design is that they use the Centrum frequently for entertainment, which is fine, but the R Bar, and Vintages are both located around the Centrum and before dinner if you want to meet anyone for drinks, the music is usually too loud to have a conversation with someone. I would like to see them have a lower volume before dinner, and rock out later. Entertainment was good, and varied from singers to hypnotists, to magicians and dancers. The crew was great, very energetic and helpful. We had my time dining, which worked out very well, although you don't get to connect with your waiter like you would on regular seating since you may not have the same one twice.

This was a very port intensive itinerary, with stops in Cannes, Livorno (Florence), Civitavecchia (Rome), Kusadasi, Pireus (Athens), Santorini, and Naples (Salerno)!
