This cruise offered the prospect of seeing a number of places we had not seen before. The ship was state of the art and very new. The food was of excellent quality. Some aspects of the service were poor. Our first tour of Rome overran and there was no lunch available when we got back. I got the feeling that the organisers were having problems coping wth the larger numbers on the ocean ship compared to the river vessels. Room service was absolutely fine and we enjoyed the ambience of the sitting areas. Afternoon tea was a great idea but the live music was rather strident in tone demanding our full attention rather than providing a background to the meal. There was a logistical failure in Valencia; the shuttle bus drivers took a two hour lunch break. When the service resumed at 2pm, only one bus turned up and all the waiting passengers could not be accommodated.
