Outdoor dining experience with gorgeous sunset was amazing. Great food all the way with only one overcooked boarder lined quality steak!

Our stateroom was spacious with tons of storage. The bed was as good as Westin Heavenly Bed. Ladies, the L'Occitane amenities made your skin and hair silky! They were much needed after a day of hot sun and dip in the sea water. Same day laundry and ironing service with very affordable price was a big plus! Room steward was helpful, friendly, hardworking and ensured our room was at its best condition at all time. We rented some movies from reception and enjoyed it in our flat screen TV. Great Bose sound system and vast song selection from its iPod!

Due to its size, there is no big Vegas show or anything like that. However, we enjoyed kayaking and swimming in the open sea when we anchored in Ischia and Capri. In fact, their staff actually saved my partner when he accidentally tipped off from the kayak. At night, we enjoyed playing blackjack at the casino. Although we made some "deposit" there, we still had good time with the manager and her staff from Eastern Europe. There were two music bands and both were adequate. One was in the Lounge and played some great relaxing music. The other one was at the semi outdoor lounge. We played Monopoly on one night. Because the cruise has only 300 passengers, we ended up making four really close couple-friends and spent lots of time together.

Never take its excursions. They were way over-priced. We only did one in Capri. The Blue Grotto was the one that we booked through the ship. It cost about US80 per person. You can get 1/4 the price on shore if you go by yourself.
