BAD POINTS: Very busy, packed with of out of control children. Irritating pop music being played constantly. Over-priced drinks (cheapest glass of wine $11) Over-priced Excursions Dreadful cabin TV. Sports channel repeats of old Everton-Liverpool matches Constant promotions for Bingo Constant promotions for Art Auctions (Park West) - and the auction practicing highly questionable practices, such as chandelier bidding and such like with the purposes of exploiting the naive and people with more money than sense to purchase quite dreadful 'works of art' The fact that the Tour Director Roberto actively promotes this company and its auctions make the Cruise line complicit in its activities. Constant selling. Outrageous $13 per day Service Charge+ 18% additional service charge on all purchases + 10% Italian Tax. In addition those charges applied for example to a drink bought in the restaurant does not include a tip (so what exactly is the 18% service charge for?), so you're also given a bill which makes it clear the tip is not included. Its all about making as much money as possible. All in all a dreadful experience

Like a nightmare....
