  3. Symphony of the Seas
I have been on 5 other cruises and I wanted to take my son(25) on a Mediterranean cruise. The Symphony is a wonderful ship . From the crew members who went above and beyond to make you happy to the activities onboard. Everything was fabulous! (I think the people who wrote the negative reviews were on a different ship!!) The ship offers a number of different dining options and all of them were 5 stars! We loved going to the Windjammer for breakfast. Great assortment of food. My son and I sat out by the pool. He went on all the watersides. I loved the Solarium. He also enjoyed the Flowrider. At night we listened to jazz in Central Park or music in the Piano Bar. The only problem area was that parents were not always watching their kids. And there were some kids in the piano bar at night. Best Cruise Ever!!

Fantastic Cruise

The cabin was great. I loved sitting out on the balcony watching the Mediterranean go by. We ate breakfast out there twice which was fun.

    The bus took a very scenic drive to Sorrento. Beautiful. We had lunch then took a boat to Capri. From gorgeous Capri we took a ferry back to Naples (ship). Great tour and be ready to walk!!
