i selected this cruise for its best itinerary. i was glad to realise that the price was very attractive too. we are a very experienced couple about 60 years old. the ship was excellent in every aspect.our balcony cabin was refurbished and very good. deck no 8 is very good.the choice of ports was excellent and many tours were offered.all the public areas look attractive and i didn't see signs of old.the entertainment was very good with dozens of items to choose from.the food was great. the main dining room is elegant and the service excellent.the casual dining room had all you could want to eat and was active most of the time. because of the quality, quantity and service of these two great free restaurants we didn't eat at the more elegant olympic restaurant.the service of the crew all over the ship was unbelievable excellent - the best we experienced in our 30 years of travel to more than 100 countries.this cruise was excellent in every aspect - a top cruise experience.
