We like sea days when cruising. Taking this cruise offered many days at sea at the beginning of the cruise. The cruise stops were at the end of the cruise with stops in Azores, Spain, France and Italy. The staff in the restaurants, the Captain and crew were very visible and willing to talk throughout the cruise. The Captain always had a briefing every day and about weather conditions. Always felt well informed about what was happening on the cruise by the Cruise director.
The ship was constantly being cleaned. As the ship was only running about 1/3 capacity the activities were always available and you can always find a private spot around the ship. They offered regional wine tasting (French, Italian etc.) and around the World wine tasting which were well attended and informative. The food on this ship had some of the best food we have had at any of the major cruise company's.
We will need to try taking this same cruise in the opposite direction next time.
Typical size room. Service was excellent. The bathroom products were different and nice to use.
