This was a 'Farewell Opera' cruise as it's in it's final season from Southampton before being enlarged. It was amazing value for money and altogether excellent.
We heard some passengers foolishly comparing the cruise to much more expensive lines. Having been on some of those lines we can only say we felt the service and food were better on this ship and the entertainment certainly was.
The food is excellent, if sometimes a little less hot than we have it at home. But this is an Italian ship and if you want all day English breakfast or English pub food you should be going somewhere else.
The cabins are on the small side but we tend not to spend any time in there except for sleeping and showering.
