It has always been a life-long "bucket list" dream, to visit Italy. This cruise provided me the opportunity to see many of the sites in Italy that I've always wanted to see and also added a few stops that I would have never considered that were fantastic (example - Montenegro). While we opted for shore excursions through an outside Vendor, everything worked smoothly. A very thoughtful itinerary with the opportunity to see so very much. We also LOVED seeing Barcelona for a weekend before we sailed.

Our service in the dining room was perfect. We had an 830 seating and we loved our table (so nice to make new friends) and the food was good. Dessert was better. :)

Our only issue was with logistics as we arrived. They changed (upgraded) our room at check in and some how that information had a hard time going to all the appropriate areas. It took a while to straighten out.

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin D1

I'm not sure of exact category - but we had a balcony on the 9th floor.

Port Reviews


Beautiful port. We had a day and half here. Nice to have some down time, easy to navigate on our own.


We stayed in Barcelona a weekend before sailing and it is a fantastic, beautiful city.


Nice to have time, slower pace, explore on our own.


We had a beach excursion booked thru the cruise line that was cancelled. So we just got off and what a surprise. We LOVED it here. Wish we had more time to explore. Gorgeous.

Getting off the boat was a bit of a fiasco - but when we got off, we loved the city.
