Our cabin was very very clean and we tried to enjoy our ocean view often but usually this was spoilt somewhat by the two chain smokers on both sides of our balcony who certainly enjoyed their balcony at every possible moment from early morning to late at night !!! It was for us quite disgusting as we do not ever go into any public place here in the U/K with smoking far less our own personal space. May i kindly suggest ot Royal Caribbean that it might be to their advantage in the future for people like us who are now cruising every year that they at least try and please the NON SMOKERS for once, maybe by accommodating us on ONE SIDE OF THE SHIP ????
We enjoyed only some of the entertainment of IOTS as they do try to appeal to all ages and tastes, so the nightly performances in the Alhambra can be literally anything and not a showtime show like we have been wowed with on other cruises e.g. P & O Arcadia which in my opinion was the most enjoyable "west end" standard of show that has obviously spoilt me rotton !!
We have been to Barcelona before and found the courtesy bus into the centre a very good way of getting to the La Rambla street for a lovely walk. also there is open decked buses that can take you around the city.
Had lunch included on this trip in small restuarant. Veal stew and potatoes followed by vanilla mousse. Be careful here I found the flies were on the bread!
