Almost perfect

Sail Date: July 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

good bits. food in the restaurant was fantastic, every meal that we had was as good as a top restaurant and our serving team were fantastic. buffet food excellent but choose your time to go as 8am - 9am is very crowded.cabins spotlessly clean and room boy was always available and very friendly.ports of call excellent but you did not always have time to go far. very much enjoyed pompeii but take a tip if like me you are over 65 take your passport as members of the european community can get in free.and a tip if like us you arrive back in barcelona early and have many hours to kill, get a taxi back to thr airport and put your cases in left luggage then take the free shuttle to the other terminal and get the train to central barcelona (4 stops).it will cost you about 6 euros return and give you an extra day out.

bad bits. the groups on the ship although musically brilliant were so loud. the worst area was around the pool where in was deafening. there was supposed to be a dress More code although they allowed people in the restaurant in shorts and baseball caps. it seemed to get better as the week went on so i expect that somebody must have complained. we mentioned it to the maitre di but he brushed ir aside and avoided us for the rest of the week.

overall i would score the criuse 7 out of 10 but the restaurant 10 out of 10 Less

Cabin review: Carnival Magic Balcony Verandah 8236

no problems. as we have cruised before we knew what to expect. we loved having the balcony and everything was spotless.

Port and Shore Excursions


stayed around the port. a trip to florence would only mean that you could spend an hour there.distance is about 75 miles. pisa about 15 miles.

enjoyed walking around the port and town and seing all the sights
