We chose this cruise for the itinerary. It had ports we wanted to see and only had one sea day. All the excursions were excellent and all the guides were very knowledgeable and spoke with perfect English.
We liked the Tuscan Steakhouse the best. The food, menu and service was spectacular (5 Star). We did not like the menu at the Red Ginger as much but the service was great. The Grand Dining Room food, menu and service were also exceptional (5 Star). When our excursions left later in the day and on sea day we had breakfast at the Grand Dining Room. We enjoyed being waited on for breakfast and having a menu with great service. On sea day we had lunch at the Waves Grill. The food was grilled the way we like it, also great service. The wine and cocktails are very expensive. The Afternoon Tea Time with the Smile String Quartet was excellent. The Captain’s cocktail party was very enjoyable.
The entertainment was the only thing that was lacking. On the first night there was a movie (could do that at home). The production company’s shows were good (not Broadway quality) but we enjoyed them. The comedian was not funny and had no interest in the singer. The Sirena Show Band was excellent and we enjoyed them very much dancing to them at Horizons but were not there every night. The other nights at Horizons there was only a jukebox to dance to (could do that at home). On sea day there was not much to do. We do not gamble and did not use the casino. There was a movie (could do that at home). There was no Line Dancing or Zumba like on other cruises.
