Great cruise and ports with just a few negatives

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise and particularly the ports of call.

We had a very nice Promenade View Stateroom with a very helpful attendant, Lillianna.

The food was very good. Plenty of it and much was included. We were suprised that there was no charge at all for room service too.

There was plenty to do onboard although I thought the itinerary was light on when it came to opportunities to meet others. This is not the ship's fault but we found the crowd a little unfriendly.

As other posters have pointed out, RC know no shame when it comes to attempting to extract as much money as possible from you in ways that were, at times, sneaky. Offers of cocktails that appeared to be free were frequently very expensive and the laundry service was twice the price if you asked for it to be returned sooner. We were surprised by the constancy of these attempts. Yes, RC is a business.....but additional profits from holiday makers seems a little mean-spirited to More me.

The cost of ship organized shore excursions are nothing less than extortion.

Despite this, we had a nice time. Less
