The ship is barely 12 months old and in good order. The crew were unbelievably friendly and courteous. The food in BLU, the aqua class restaurant was consistently very good without being over facing. The Dining arrangements, tables for two, are perfect and you could close up if you brought friends. Really a most enjoyable experience night after night. Breakfast in here was superb with lots of choice.

We ventured into the Tuscan grill one evening with a a lovely view of the stern of the ship. This was of the highest quality in presentation, style and service.

We also ventured into Qsine where high tech menus in the form of ipads takes a little getting used to. The food in here was really good but be careful the portions can be huge. Choose only 3 dishes and you will be impressed. It is a 3 hour experience like no other. Most enjoyable once again.

All the crew on this ship must be incredibly well trained to look after you in the best possible way.

Our only criticism would be the Aqua class deck has a large overhang in most cabins and you seldom have direct sun.

Overall a wonderful ship and crew.

Cabin review: AquaClass 1

Port and Shore Excursions

Port
We went round Lisbon in the rain and we were dropped off by the bus close to the main shopping street. Pedestrian zone needs the walkways relaying. The buildings are becoming old and tired, some shops boarded up. Odd exceptional shop but most very ordinary. City looks short of cash. However away from City centre there were nice parks. Not a city we wish to return to.

We climbed to the Church at the top of the hill and walked back. Views were quite nice but we were not impressed with Cagliari.

Really nice well kept City. Looks and feels prosperous. We had a coach trip to south of Centre where beaches abound along with muscle beds in the estuary. Shopping looked good and we would return.One of the best places on our trip.
