We were on a 12 night cruise in the Western Med in an Aquaclass cabin. We were somewhat concerned before we left on this cruise having read a number of reviews talking about how tired the ship looked and indicating the food was so so. This was not our experience. The ship is older but I found it very clean and well maintained. They were repainting large sections of the wooden railings on this voyage.
We ate most nights in Blue (never ate in Trellis) and the food was above average and on most nights was excellent. The staff were great. We did have a couple of lunches and a breakfast in the Oceanview Café and we were impressed with the choice and the quality of the freshly prepared pasta and omelettes. Café Al Bacio was great and the Martini Bar was a blast.
The staff were very friendly and always helpful.
This cabin is in back of the ship at the port corner. It was in excellent condition. the only defect we found was a loose rail on one of the shelves in teh bathroom. The cabin is a bit tight but well laid out and functional. The bath is also a bit tight but functional. The shower was great and we found the bed very comfortable. The balcony is a reasonable size and we love having a balcony on back of the ship. Very happy with the cabin which was in very good condition.
Did the Cassis tour. A charming seaside town and the visit to the martime bluff with its amazing views before reaching the town provided spectacular views. The guide was great. As with some other tours a little more free time would have made the tour perfect.
We only took the first half of the tour as I took ill. We saw Valletta and the guide was very good and the history was very interesting.
Guide was nice but her accent was so heavy that she was difficult to understand over the headphones. Another tour that would have been perfect if we had more free time.
We took the ferry to Amalfi (40 minutes) and spent a lovely day in Amalfi.
