What a gorgeous beautiful ship, such detail and European Flair!!! This is a large ship with crowds of people everywhere. The crew was outstanding and friendly and always responsive to our needs. Giovanni and Miguel were our wait staff in the Black Crab Restaurant, they were excellent and friendly and efficient. I had a group of 8 people on this cruise and everyone was pleased with their service. It was nice to be able to speak Italian for a change. The food overall was very good, some of the dishes presented were outstanding, some were average but good. There were plenty of choices from the appetizers to the main entrees to the desserts, I can't understand some of the ratings where people are complaining about quantity of food, we were complete stuffed. The buffet on the lido deck was outstanding, expensive prosciutto and other Italian cold cuts were served with a nice selection of cheeses, there were always a number of pizzas served which was delicious. There was an ethnic corner with various nationality foods served, there was a carving station with delicious fresh meats, a pasta bar, hot dog and hamburger bar, special meals of the day bar, a deserts bar etc. The breakfast menu is extensive as well, both in the restaurants and the buffet. They even have a poolside breakfast bar available so you can eat and still swim in the pools. The gelatto bar was great as well.
The best show was the Michael Jackson Tribute Show....a nice married couple performed Abba and the Beatles in one of the lounges, they were fantastic.
The port calls and tours were great as well, I would recommend the "see everything" panoramic tours for all the ports. Uncle Sam our Cabin Stewart was great, always had a smile for us, kept ice in the bucket and kept our cabin #11106 in tip top condition. We really enjoyed the art auction, the free glasses of champagne, and learning about the different artists, we purchased several paintings at a good discount.
We had a balcony cabin, everything worked, it was spotless and clean and cabin steward Sammy was great, always had ice in the bucket for us, the little refrigerator filled with beverage goodies was great as well, even though it was an extra cost, it was worth it for the convenience.
We got to walk around the Atlantis Resort to get a feel of what it would be like to book a vacation here.
I was a nice introduction to Nassau, Bahamas We got to see the capital and also visited Atlantis.

nice overall tour of San Juan.
You really need to be physically fit to take this tour, so much climbing up steep stairs, well worth it, for the views and history of the fort.View All 182 Walking Tour of Old San Juan Reviews
