Sorry, Oceania, but Princess has a better product. The food was not enjoyable and rather repetitive. The pizza was to die for--literally--that bad! Here in Rome we had real pizza; the stuff at the Terrace Cafe was tomatoe sauce on cardboard.The 24-hour International Cafe on Princess is marvelous. Sirena only offered a coffee machine and room service after normal restaurant hours. But what if you just wanted a small snack and didn't want to wake your cabin up.
Food aside, there was one movie shown during the sea days. But why not more? Sea day activities were so-so.
Kudos, however, goes to a magnificent and highly attentive staff. Everyone went over and above.
The cabin on the 6th floor, midships, was small and again Princess (although this is an old Princess ship) does it better.
The landside, post-cruise experience was really great. The Marriott Grand Flora in the Via Veneto region was beyond belief! The ground transport from ship to hotel and then from hotel to airport also went very smoothly.
Overall, the ports were the better part of the journey. And, as always, were the great people we met along the waty.
