Venice was as beautiful as ever. Staying on the Michelangelo made the holiday, it was like being at a big house party, such fun. I thought it was very good value for money. The boat was moored in a very convenient position with wonderful views from our cabin. The ship's crew were lovely and worked very hard to make the holiday perfect.
