Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin:

The service was excellent aling with all of the food at the main restaurant and the World Cafe. The tea at the Winter Garden was lovely.

The size of the shop is substantial and with only having 930 passengers it never feels crowded. The crew keep the ship spotless and maintained.

It was never a problem getting off and on the ship when it was at port. The included excursions give you a nice taste of the area. For more in-depth exploring, the optional excursions are the ones to go on. We really enjoyed the included tours for Messina and Crete but the highlight for us was the included tour of Ancient Ephesus in Turkey.

Cabin Review

Spacious cabin with veranda on the starboard side just about midship so it's great location.

Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)

Getting from the airport to the ship was quick and we didn't have to wait long on board before lunch was ready and our stateroom was available early.

Due to bad weather, we had to stay docked overnight to ensure the safety of all on board.

Naples

Unfortunately due to bad weather, we were not able to depart from Rome as planned so this port of call had to be skipped.
