Initially chose this cruise as my very elderly parents needed a holiday and flying was out of the question. Found the staff very helpful and friendly. The cabins one of the largest I have come across at sea with a decent bathroom.
The ship was heavily decorated with an Italian renaissance theme which may some of the communal areas including 9th floor buffet restaurant area dark. Eat dinner in the main dining room which was OK but found the portion sizes and courses inconsistent. The buffet food was actually better in terms of taste and temperature.
On-board singers and musicians were good quality especially the electronic violin band. Could have gone with some jazz.
