We are a family of 5. 2 adults and 3 teenagers. We travel extensively and we’re looking for a fun way to explore the Adriatic. We chose this cruise because of the 18 day itinerary and the room sizes. The cruises were only half full. We enjoyed all of our dining experiences in all of the restaurants. The staff knew our preferences quickly and we enjoyed everything. The staff were fantastic. We never had to wait in lines for anything. Tons of tenders going back and forth. Buses taking into towns when our port was away from the historic areas were nice. Our room was always cleaned with no issues. We had plenty of room for all of us. One youngest son was on a cot. We still had room. The bathrooms and closets were perfect. The internet was the best we ever had at sea and that made a huge difference traveling with teens. We all enjoyed reading in the library and spending time in the observation bar. The exercise room was nice for this size ship. We went to a couple of entertainment in the evenings and they seemed geared more an older demographic but were high quality. My 17 year old went to a talk and he said it was a bit boring. My only complaint was the shore excursions were not up to the level of the ship. Just nothing special. We switched to mostly private excursions towards the end of the trip. The other guests on the ship were older than us and all I heard them do was complain about everything. It seemed to be a culture of of complaining by the passengers more than actual things going wrong. I think sitting around complaining was their bonding time? We just kept to ourselves and had a great time.
We had a 2 rooms on floor 9 connecting. One with a living area separate from the bedroom by a glass wall and the other a regular suite. The rooms were large and had tons of storage. We were very happy with 2 double sinks and an extra sink in the toilet of the larger suite. We did not use the bath tubs. The closets were perfect.
