A brilliant itinerary :Venice, Croatia (Dubrovnik, Split, Koper) Montenegro, Valletta, Slovenia, Italy (Ravenna, Catania and Salerno)Pretty good weather (though heavy rain in Venice) and a very nice crew. The food was generally very good. We were unfortunate enough to need the medical team in an emergency and I can't thank them enough, they were brilliant.Only two moans: the water in the pools tasted salty but I was assured it wasn't salt water. I found this unpleasant to swim in as it stung my sensitive skin. A bigger problem for us was the siting of DJ Crazy Prince most nights on the landing over the main staircase atrium by the cocktail bar so that when we were sitting enjoying a quiet pot of tea after dinner ( in the only place you could get actually one, al Bacio cafe) we were assaulted by loud thumping "techno" and disco music from the floor below. This meant 3 decks had this noise. The same younger (ie 40 ish) guests - maybe 20 of them- were dancing and enjoying this most nights but I don't think it was to the taste of many older (typically cruiser) guests. We would have had a better cruise if EITHER the DJ was in a more enclosed area- one of the bars perhaps- OR we could have got our tea and coffee somewhere quieter, such as Celllar masters. I asked about taking a tray through as they were adjacent facilities but i was told if i did so I would have to have a paper take away cup...not the experience I wanted. This was due to the design of the ship, I don't recall this as a problem on Celebrity Eclipse. Otherwise a lovely cruise.

Brilliant itinerary, a lovely cruise but please move that DJ!
