Sail Date: Oct 2023
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

Selected itinerary for the ports and ability to spend a few days in Rome. Embarkation was the BEST, easiest, fastest we've ever experienced. We were boarded and eating lunch in MDR a full hour before our check in time.

For a ship going into dry dock, we did experience any maintenance related issues or ration shortages. There was no visible work being done in the areas where we walked. May have been some happening down where the library was going to be installed, but I did not go down there.

Only negative, and it was kind of a big one, was speed of service in MDR. Service was painfully slow no matter which meal or time of day. DH does not like eating in MDR and this really frustrated him.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

Aft cabin with wake view did not disappoint. Had zero maintenance issues, had worked flawlessly, mini fridge actually chilled contents, water pressure and temperature in shower were great.

Port Reviews


Very pretty, interesting and walkable city once you were in port. We used ship shuttle (paid, not free) to get to Old Town.


Quite enjoyed the wine tasting excursion we did. Very pretty port.

Rome (Civitavecchia)

Very dirty city full of homeless people. No place to sit anywhere when walking around, not even at bus stops. So much to see, great food, easy to navigate using HOHO.
