The food was mediocre on this cruise. The food we ate ashore and on our plane to and from was better, and I am not exaggerating. I almost laughed out loud when told the bread was made onboard. It is not and it is not good. Most things are frozen. For example, the lobster thermidor is made by boiling a plastic packet of lobster and other items and placing it on a hulled out shell. It is not baked or broiled in the shell. The room service menu is limited and the items are below par. The hamburger was the worst I have ever eaten---clearly a patty loaded with filler. There are two pools. The main pool is very crowded. The pool off Canyon Ranch spa and accessible to concierge and higher rooms does not have service of any kind. You must walk back and forth between the pools to get a glass of water, cocktail, etc. Really odd.
The stewards and housekeepers were lovely, but that was the only highlight.
We did a tour on our own that was great.
Very crowded. Other than Oia, the island is not something that would interest most.
Not sure that Positano was worth the ferry over.
We had a great private tour.
Lovely town. Be sure to see Castello Brown. Santa Margherita was charming and authentic without the throngs of tourist. It is a short ferry from Portofino and worth the slight effort to get there. Highly recommend.
