Positives. Staff. Top class. Waiters - Excellent especially - Dining Melvic Z and Jansen Nicolas along with others we made good contact with and there was several of them. Thank you boys and girls - bar. Sheila, Jennifer, Araminda and lots of others whose names I didnt remember! Shows - Excellent and fresh- no repeats! and wide variety all done by staff who also had other duties. The energy!!!! Music - lots of it and various styles and in many venues Communication - excellent altho in up to 7 different languages. ( remember its an Italian ship) so obviously everything was in Italian then other languages followed. Service desks- excellent. Dining rooms - excellent choices, flavours and presentation and energectic entertainment was a hit with all -Buffet. Many choices and styles of food and never a shortage in quantity or quality! Variety of drinks with in each package was very good. The range of coffees, teas and juices was great. Only one type of beer avail by the glass The effort that went into keeping the Ship free of the CV-19 was commendable. Some of the ports of call were extremely good. Others interesting. Some activities had the gloss taken off only due to the language barriers. Negatives wine- Maybe better quality? Why not water available free as duty of care? the water available from the Buffet was not nice as it was heavily chlorinated not filtered, and not always available. I was of the understanding the buffet area was open for longer hours than it seemed to be, Some one apparently did complain and it was open longer for the 2nd part of our trip. No quiet zone any were except in your room to chill out in.Only place was on deck 5 with the smokers - no thank you. A quiet lounge/seating area with soft music and view outside would have been magic Difficult at the service desks from time to time to hear while the music was blaring! Internet. super expensive. Rating? still 10/10 from us

Cabin Review

Inside Classic
Cabin IC
Our cabin was big enough to move around in easily and lovely bathroom. Our cabin steward Martins' diligence was commendable. Lovely friendly guy who immediately saw to two problems we found....fridge not working so it was changed over and USB port not working so it was fixed with in an hour of him seeing the note on our bed. Lovely towel art too :) Thanks mate!
