The ship is beautiful. Staterooms are plenty nice, but the ship charges for everything as an extra.
Also, the food was terrible. Coffee was in-drinkable (and this is run by Italians who know good coffee). If you want to lose weight on a cruise this is the one!
Shows were surprisingly entertaining which was a bonus.
Sooooo many kids on my June cruise I felt like I was in an elementary school tout. Thank goodness I only had three nights on the ship.
The real positive is that this is a great way to travel between Istanbul and Venice via water as there are no ferries available.
So good luck with this cruise line is all I can say. Take along snacks so you don't starve.
