Sail Date: May 2016

We choose our cruises by itineraries and desired destinations since little time is spent in a room. The Mediterranea food is average to poor. Dinner menus are fine in that they offer more than you would ever cook at home, although seafood was less than normal, no treats like crab, lobster or escargot. We understood the line is largely Italian and that was a plus for us. The partying element they promote was not the case on our ship. We have Italians in our family so we looked forward to a very international vacation. However, the offering of pastry/donuts and limited deli meats for both breakfast and lunch was a very large portion of the buffets. We went to the formal dining room to seek out eggs and salmon. Things like pancakes and waffles were very greasy. There was no complimentary ice cream, coffee bars or pizza like on american lines, FYI. Also, a lack of lounge chairs are a problem. ALSO, if you end up on deck ONE beware, the crew works through night below. We has to ask for ear plugs!
