We chose this cruise for the excellent ports that it visited...Barcelona, Naples, Civitavecchia, Marseilles, Nice, and LeSpezia. The rooms were nice although we were expecting a pull-out couch for our adult daughter rather than the very uncomfortable trundle pull down bed with a thin and hard mattress. Overall, the food in the dining room was very good. One night, the prime rib and fish were awful but the rest of cruise it was very good. The waiters in the dining room were great. We did enjoy breakfast in the Windjammer, although it was always a challenge to find a table. The staff were helpful with that. Ate lunch on the ship only one day at sea and it was plentiful and tasty. I would have liked to see nicer deserts in the Windjammer in the evening. We would go there after the show for a coffee and desert before bedtime and the deserts were not very special as we've experienced on other ships. We only took one shore excursion with the ship, which we had purchased two months before. I was disappointed when they lowered the price and we were on a bus loaded with cruisers. Our other excursions were with private companies. They were excellent...smaller groups and great tour guides.

Nice clean ship, Decent food but we wanted a pull out couch
