Sail Date: Aug 2014
Cabin:

We sailed from Dubrovnik, Croatia to Venice, Italy. It was a wonderful itinerary and we really appreciated the late stays in port. The captain even extended our stay in a couple of ports which was great.

The staff were, without exception, incredible. For instance, one day we were going into port at the same time as the Maitre d'. He asked what we had planned, when we told him we wanted to go to a beach, he recommended we take a local shuttle service to a small island off the coast. He then walked us through town to where the shuttle left and helped us buy tickets for the shuttle boat. Other staff equally went the extra mile to ensure that our trip was memorable.

We were generally happy with our fellow passengers as well. We were two couples, travelling together, in our 40s and 50s. The other passengers ranged in age from their 20s through 70s. Most were probably in their 40s and 50s. Not as pretentious as some other luxury lines. Generally fun loving and well-traveled. There was one partial charter group of about 30 family members. The first couple of days, they were fairly loud and inconsiderate of other guests. According to the staff, on the cruise the previous week, there was another partial charter group who were far worse. Management should do a better job ensuring the large groups don't impact the other passengers.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deck 2 Stateroom

The very small bathroom appeared to be the only updated part of the cabin. It was marble clad with good (Bulgari) toiletries. The cabin itself was very worn. There were stains on the carpet. All woodwork was scuffed and some of the drawers did not open properly. As mentioned in the main review, the A/C did not cool the room on several nights despite having the curtains drawn at all times during the day.
