We have done two river cruises, wanted to try an ocean cruise. We had a wonderful experience. the food was terrific, service friendly and helpful, and the room was very comfortable and well appointed. The excursions were well planned and fascinating, I could have spent days at Pompeii! Rome was great too, and of course, Venice. The spa is the best kept secret on the boat, wonderful and relaxing after a long day of walking. The choice of dining options and location was great, formal if we like, or not. Our cabin steward, JoJo, was very helpful and friendly, and clearly went out of his way to take care of us. The lectures and port talks were very helpful, and entertaining. The former ambassador was very interesting and open to casual talks after the formal presentation. We didn't participate in a lot of the entertainment activities, but the oldies concert night was great fun.

It was delightful
