From start to finish we were made to feel as if we were the most important guests the crew had ever hosted. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was outstanding. In particular I must mention Tibo, Marco and Virgil as staff that were outstanding. In addition the cruise director was very helpful, full of advice and so interested in everyone.
