  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean

Great cruise good ports and lovely sea days. Had a balcony cabin which was good even with three of us in there. Staff great ready to chat with you. Easy to get around and found things easy. The dinning rooms were great and staff helpful. The food was good and varied to suit most tastes and always looked good. The entertainment was good good shows guest entertainers with lots of laughfter. At times there was too much on at the same time so had to choose waht to go to. The two shore excursions we took were good and the information was helpful to us. Other ports we did our own thing and went ashore and looked around found some lovely places to just sit and people watch. The ice shows as always were great and well worth going to see. Look forward to sailing on the ship next year after refit.

Cabin Review

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Some good places to go to but not very clean in places.


Lovely place to see good beach not far away lovely cafes to sit and have a drink.

Rome (Civitavecchia)

Great place to visit and see all the places you read off.

Florence (Livorno)

Great to go here. The only problem we had was not to do with the cruise line as we had rain after we arrived. The tour guide was good and helped out.


Just went ashore to terminal building. Shutle bus was too expensive.


This is a great port and well worth a visit. Lovely beach front and prom to walk along. The sun shone on our visit as well.


Good ports but shame about all the works going on.
