Good food. That's the positives out of the way. Rooms small. Accommodation deck stank of poo. Shows were god-awful ending with a finale of a guy on a bmx bike cycling round in circles. Utterly naff. Busy ship with ...

We chose this cruise because we got a good deal on it. We're long-time RCI sailers, so only go on their line. The ports were lovely; I had never been to Europe before except a land-based Italy tour, so it was ...
