The journey was pleasant, the service on board was good, it was on time. The cabin could be better maintained, it wouldn't need much: a plug in working order, some properly fixed towel handle, etc.

The catering was deficient, the choice was poor and the quantities were small. The prices are high in comparison to what's on offer (both in the self restaurant and in the restaurant). Moreover, you should adapt the opening times of the restaurant according to the time of boarding.

Genoa is a city and a seaport in northern Italy, the capital of the Province of Genoa and of the region of Liguria. Genoa's history goes back to ancient times. A city cemetery, dating from the 6th and 5th centuries B.C., testifies to the occupation of the site by the Greeks, but the fine harbor probably was in use much earlier, perhaps by the Etruscans. Destroyed by the Carthaginians in 209 BC, the town was rebuilt by Rome, under which the city enjoyed municipal rights and exported skins, wood, and honey.
In 1797, under pressure from Napoleon, Genoa became a French protectorate called the Ligurian Republic, which was annexed by France in 1805. Although the Genoese revolted against France in 1814 and liberated the city on their own, delegates at the Congress of Vienna sanctioned its incorporation into Piedmont (Kingdom of Sardinia), thus ending the three century old struggle by the House of Savoy to acquire the city.
Tunis is the capital of Tunisia. Situated at the end of a large gulf (the Gulf of Tunis), linked to it by the Lake of Tunis and a canal to the port of La Goulette (Halq al Wadi), the city extends along the coastal plain and the hills that surround it. From the centre of the city, to the east is the silhouette of the medina and to the north is the suburb of Belvedere. Tunis is a city with a long history. In the 2nd millennium BCE a town, originally named Tunes, was founded by Libyans and also over time occupied by Berbers or Numidians. In the 9th century BCE, the city was taken over by Phoenicians from Carthage. The Berbers took control of Tunis in 395 BCE but it was soon lost when Agathocles invaded Africa and established his headquarters there. When Agathocles left Africa, the Carthaginians took control of the city once again. In 146 CE, the Romans destroyed Tunis (along with Carthage). However, the city was subsequently rebuilt and became an important town.
