My wife and I chose this for our honeymoon. Having never cruised before we were apprehensive - there was no need for that. What a perfect holiday.

Arrival at Naples was fine for us mid twenties couple, although there is a little 10 minute walk from the terminal to the bus so can't imagine it's great for everyone. Straight onto the boat and into our cabin, bags were delivered about 15 minutes after our arrival.

We can't fault any member of staff on board the ship, and a special mention to our cabin steward Anastasiia and also Zaida in the perfume shop as their service went above and beyond.

Cabin Review

Cabin Balcony

Ample size, good for storage, bed is huge. Bathroom is good size. Balcony is lovely for an afternoon/evening drink watching the sunset. Nice to have that bit extra space out there.

Port Reviews


A lot bigger than you think, and take water with you!


Stunning place.


Very nice in port, didn't do any excursions just walked around.


Stunning town, loads going on. Lovely little marina for food and drink, market going on while we were there
