We had a 12 day cruise out of Rome and embarkation was fairly easy since i had entered most of the information online as requested, and we arrived late afternoon. We had 5 days in Rome previous to the cruise, had a great time so were a little disappointed by our cruise.

Like others, i found the overindulgence in 'pink' to be somewhat offputting! The shops onboard had a good variety but getting someone to help always seemed a problem.

We felt the ship definitely catered particularly to US guests. The seamiles program is not available to non US citizens and the ATM outside of the shop only issues US dollars even though we are touring Europe! Particularly annoying is that it isn't highlighted on the ATM. We ended up withdrawing funds from our Australian bank account, in US dollars which then had to be converted into Euros! We were advised there is a euro machine in the casino after we complained.
