We are experienced cruisers - this was our 35th or so cruise. We have sailed on RCL, NCL, Princess, Celebrity, Carnival and Costa through the years. We chose this ship due to the departure date and exotic itinerary - figured how bad could an Italian cruise be and it could be fun and lively. Well we were very wrong. This was the WORST cruise we have ever taken and our sentiments were echoed by our Norweigen and British tablemates who had cruised numerous times in the past as well. I will list Pros and Cons.
- Embarkation from Rome (Civitavecchia)
Decent sized - only cabins left when we booked wanting a higher deck and embarking in Rome - more choices departing from Savona. Cabin was kept clean and had a fridge. Cabin stewards spoke English and was efficient. Gave us xtra hangers and ice twice a day. We barely had any air conditioning in this cabin during the night - got extremely hot.
