We sailed from southampton and found embarkation very quick and easy.plus one point . Went for something to eat,not to bad.plus 2 points.i like Italian food so that helped.next we had a drink ,this had no charge as we took the 23 euro a day drinks pack edge.if you like a drink every day I suggest you take this offer as it includes coffee,bottled water,cocktails,spirits and draught beer,and soft drinks and ice cream from the pool bar. (A rum &coke costs 6.50euros for example) so it will not take to long to get to reach 23 euros. As an example we payed 370euros about £310, and we drank about 540euros about £450 of coffee's,cocktails and spirits,beer and cokes, so we came off better.
Being a Italian run ship one or two things are different, like no coffee after evening meal,no crackers or biscuits to go with cheese counter,but I can live with that. Other than that everything as was ok except for the casino they aloud smoking in all this area which ment you could be playing a machine and someone sits beside you and you have to suffer with passive smoking right next to you,we'll all around the casino actually which is not very good if you do not smoke, it spoiled it for us. Saying that if you pay for a cheaper cruise you only get what you pay for.
