Pros & Cons

The Pros

SHOWS are amazing, food and decor were fantastic, no cheesy american flash, pure mediterranean elegance

The Cons

Busy tender service, required use of the lifeboats on 2 stops (of 7)
The Review
We were treated like royalty even in basic accommodations, our stewart Paul took amazing care of us. The shows are to die for, nothing like what i've seen on Carnival or Norwegian, we went to most of the shows TWICE on our back to back cruise. The lobby and shops are very elegant, classy and relaxing, i've never seen so many shwarovsky crystals in one place. The gym has better equipment than the 19 gyms in my city (Ottawa, Canada) which is saying a lot. The food in the DR was wonderful, I gained so much weight eating fresh warm bread soaked in EVOO and fresh pasta…yikes. The buffet had everything you could imagine and very friendly staff, my boyfriend was even kept cookies every night made by Michelle for the cookie cart in case we missed it.
Additional Information
Ship Quality:          
Huge ship, we were the biggest ship in all the ports, great pools (there are 3). Try the water slide which is hard to find thru a stairwell near the teen play area.
Dining and Food:          
Best food i've had on any cruise. My boyfriend is a bodybuilder who eats 6 times a day and is very FUSSY…and he liked it…that in itself is an amazing recommendation. The Maitre D' would offer to make items off-menu when there were options he didn't like
Stateroom Quality:          
Decor in rooms was really nice, closets were huge, bathroom was modern with great lighting (to do my makeup which isn't alway obvious on cruises with so much pot-lighting from above)
Ship Staff Quality:          
From the buffet staff to the pool/bar staff everyone is personable and friendly and not pushy. The only bad experience we had was with reception staff once.
Entertainment Quality:          
Witches of Paris, Alice in Wonderland (a la Johnny Depp version) were my favourites, I would see them 10 times. For those who like to see how the shows are produces, we took an excellent 4 hour tour of the ship where they spend a lot of time in the contro
Family Friendliness:          
The Activity staff were very engaging and friendly, we played all the pool games and even went to trivia twice a day most days.
