Ship: Amadolce, max passengers 140, actual passengers on our cruise 110. Beautiful ship.
Cabin: 3**, Category A+. We chose this cabin because the pictures online showed a larger bathroom arrangement than the rest of the categories. When we cruise on Scenic last year in their lowest level cabin, we had to open the bathroom door to turn around, so bathroom size is now a priority. Unfortunately, the layout was not as shown on the deck plan, but was the same as all other cabins. Wouldn’t have paid the extra for this suite if we had known that! Good news was that the actual layout was manageable for us. Negatives about the cabin were lack of counter space as well as no drawer space. Found a pull out bin under one of the twin beds, which unfortunately was unusable in the twin bed configuration (provided feedback on cruise survey at end, since it would have been usable if placed under the other bed). Plenty of hangers though! No difference between a suite and A+ other than Suite has a bathtub. As typical in Europe, the beds have a duvet instead of a top sheet and blanket. Easily changed if you let reception know.
Staff: Never met our room hostess, but our room was made up twice a day as expected, so think she did a great job. Only saw her picture on the t.v. Our Cruise Manager Marianna was excellent. Everything well organized. Presentations each night about upcoming day during Sip and Sail hour. Captain and ship crew were visible everywhere, doing everything when they weren’t “driving” the boat. Bar staff were great. There were 3 people in the lounge serving drinks and food and they were very responsive to any requests or questions. Reception staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Most crew seemed to be from Serbia and Romania, and this was the first cruise of the season, so some were brand new. Training was obviously going on, but pretty much transparent to passengers.
