7 night Mediterranean Cruise- Italy, Spain, France- embarked at Rome Nice ship, pretty well-oiled machine, okay food, VERY nice staff in room, cafes, shops, etc.. Cirque show- excellent but get Premium Seating. Standard seating - miss some parts in air. Get the drink package. We pre-paid all tips (glad to do this). Teppanaki restaurant was REALLY fun but food was so-so. Activities such as bowling, arcade, billiards, darts, etc. involve a charge. Pros: Hotel on water, loads to do, meet lots of nice people, great outdoor area Cons: Lots of upcharges (for things you thought were included), limited hours for full dining but there are options for later *** Seems like Barcelona is the better place to embark- more info, full safety drill, qualify for raffles, etc. that we didn't get coming on in Rome (somewhat disappointing) *** Customer Service not always knowledgeable. IE- didn't know how to get the one thing we wanted to do- shuffleboard (speak English but don't necessarily understand what you're asking). ***Shore Excursion management not really there for you (limited hours and really aren't very helpful if a problem occurs).

Nice Cruise
