Positives-Amazing weather. Best butler. Great food in Sette Mare and Prime 7. Nice pool & aft infinity pool lovely but hard to access.Fun experience in Asian restaurant. Entertainment - such very good shows-loved the Opera Girls. Fun cruise director. Love David Nevin's show. Liked breakfast in Sette Mare. Negatives- Cabin(see below). No outdoor bar. Bad excursions with crummy buses(they were only 1/2 full and should have used smaller more modern with legroom etc.) Impersonal, robotic service on deck & lounges. Two ports changed because of conditions(1 meter seas-seemed overly conservative). We had no excursion planned for Portofino and when changed to Genoa the ship only accommodated people who had booked tours & didn't provide a shuttle to Portofino. Chartreuse was so disappointing- timing way off, service awkward & not professional. Would nave enjoyed a ship formal night.Things like caviar at breakfast on Sun-we just stumbled upon and felt it might have been better communicated. Bad communication about any changes-seemed guest's responsibility to study newsletter for new info.

Never again

Cabin Review

Cabin 701
Most disappointing!! Could not stand up at end of bed because of slanting ceiling. Worst noise caused by ship arriving or leaving port that we've ever experienced (in over 25 cruises).Terrible sewage smell every night. Don't book 701 0r 702.
