Magic Mediterranean Vacation
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
We had very mild weather and seas, compared to our prior cruises we were cruising in a bathtub. Alot of the cruise was spent at ports on shore excursions, but we did a few ship side events. We indulged in the spa the first day. Also attended an art auction. The entertainment on board is really focused on children, but we still had fun. They have a beautiful movie theater and saw some late night shows. A comedy act for adults, Alfred and Seymour was very funny. The disco bar was smoke free, as was most everything, and the singers and musicians excellent. We attended a concierge reception when sailing out of Corsica, FUN, intimate. The last day at sea I took a tour of the kitchens, the chefs were actually kind of arrogant and overconfident, which explained to me why I never cared a great deal for their main dining rooms. If we hadn't dined at Palo, whose chef is fantastic, it would have been a very different cruise, for the worse. I have to say though that when our son was young the dining rooms were fun because of the entertaining and sweet staff, so we didn't much care about the less than stellar food.
Our experience of the ports was mixed. Great - Naples, La Spezia, Villefranche, Good- Ajaccio, Rome, OK - Malta, Not OK - Tunis. Tunis, for a variety of reasons is not appropriate for a Disney cruise. When we were there it was Ramadan, in the summer heat, which means the local population was uncomfortable from the daily fast, while we were vacationing.
In summary, the additional money spent for the suite and concierge service was well worth it, for us. We had a true luxury cruise experience. I can't wait to go back! Less
Cabin review: T
the one bedroom concierge suite, for our family of three, was worth EVERY EXTRA PENNY. We had privacy, dining room space, a double balcomy. two TVs, two bathrooms, all beautifully maintained.
