Let me start off by saying my wife and I had a wonderful time aboard the ship and the tours we took. The room stewards were excellent, dining room staff the best! The room, but small was always clean and comfortable. The food in the main dining room was pretty good, nice selection and always properly prepared. The buffet had a very nice selection of dishes and nicely prepared. Disembarking the ship went smoothly and quickly. The tour buses could have been a little newer, but were clean. The drivers were beyond compare and the tour guides very knowledgeable and humorous. A FEW THINGS WE WEREN’T TOO HAPPY WITH: 1) We entered our room and found a large bottle of water on the dresser, and drank it because we with a little hot. The room steward informed us the water cost 4.5 Euros, with no signage to that effect. That annoyed me. I told him I enjoy cold water in the evening, and he outdid himself! Twice a day a pitcher of cold water and a bucket of ice! That earned him a nice extra tip at the end of the cruise. 2) The constant hawking of bottled water when we left the ship. Over twice the price. 3) The end of the trip: It was suggested by our tour director that taking their buses from the ship to the airport would be a great idea, saving time instead of trying to get the few cabs that would be available. So we signed up for around $64.00. After we retrieved our bags and dragged them off the ship to the bus assigned us. Got to the bus, now changed to another bus, then changed again to another bus, dragging our bags all over the place. Finally loaded, our overhead bag didn’t fit in the bus overhead, in the lap all the way to the airport. The bus arrived and dropped us off at the beginning of International Departures, short of the overhang and it was raining. Nice. To make matters worse, our airline was at the far end of the terminal, again dragging our luggage. We noticed cabs with other ship passengers arriving in front of the terminal at the same time. Appears the cost was a little less with far more convenience. Anything to make more money for the ship’s company. Very disappointed, needless to say…

Great crew, clean ship, very good food.
