We were dubious about this cruise after reading alot of the negative reviews, but we were going on a family holiday there were 16 of us, so we booked it with an open mind. You get what you pay for, the ship does require a reburb, but its very clean, the food is excellent, so is the entertainment, the cabins are small and require re-modernisation, but on a cruise you dont spend your time in your cabin other than to sleep and refresh? The restuarant and lounge areas are comfortable enough surroundings. The all inclusive package is well worth the money, as you can eat 24/7, they change the menu reguarly throughout the day and there is always a choice of hot and cold food. The food is also of good quality, I am vegetarian and found there was more than a sufficient choice of hot food, which is more that can be said than restuarants on land. The places visited was of a good choice, Menorca, Monaco, Monte Carlo, Rome, Pisa, Tuscany, Corsica (which I personally loved) and although I personally felt time restricted to get back on the boat, it gives you a good taster of the places you would like to go back to for a full time holiday. The sea was calm for 6 days our of the 7. One of the nights it was rough for a full 12 hours, but a boat is there to rock. The staff are friendly and will go out their way to help you, there are hand sanitizers everywhere, before you go in restuarants and outside the entertainment areas. Over all I would say this cruise was value for money, clean, confortable and varied - places of visits across Europe.
