Everything I read indicated this was the Best, for starters, the food was not as good as Carnival Cruise line, Expected much better quality for the cost of the Cruise. WIFI was free for only 1 hour total the entire cruise. Speciality Dinning was inpossible to get, even when the dinning rooms were half empty (we checked, looked in at all hours listed). Tried to book reservations on line months prior to cruise, was only able to get standby for Seishin restaurant, on nite we dined there the restaurant was not even half full, we stayed till 9:45 pm. Food was very good at the Seishin. La Terrazza restaurant was the best, again you need reservations, when denied, restaurant is not full, what's up with this? Length of time at the best ports was too short, if you take excursions, you miss the old town areas. Cabin was Great, always clean, wait staff the best, drinks were fast in comming and very good. Embarkation and disembarkation was smooth, water taxis in Venice, if scheduled on ship is twice as much as what is charge if you walk up to the Taxis stand. Enterainment was average, Ship was very clean and easy to get around, with only 500 guest it is very social. Not the bang for the Bucks I expected, so said many of the guest we met on the cruise.
