Thank you to previous review writers of this cruise ship. Our expectations were fairly low with all the negative reviews, but we still booked because we liked the ports . Surprise, we loved the ship. I should point out I’ve also travelled on bigger ships with the Celebrity and Norwegian lines.

Many complained about the meals. We found them delicious ( except for one night) Some complained about the portions being too small. This was great for me I have a tendency to eat everything on my plate and get overfull. What people might not know is you could order two or three main courses. Don’t like the one you ordered, the waiter got another. Want a second helping, no problem. The menus were varied. My only complaint was you had to pay for a lobster tail meal for 22 euro. The menu said lobster tails ( plural) in 5 languages ( plural ) but you only get one ... however it was delicious .

I never found any of the people on board pushy ( some reviews complained about pushy Italians)and the staff were mostly friendly and courteous... a few female waiters could smile a bit more.
