Easy Embark Easy Disembark. Great Ports of Call. English, German, & Spanish speaking passengers were friendly. French Pas singers were pushy & were butting in line everywhere. We rented Cars at most ports. Budget Rent-a-car was great ... Read more

The old adage, if it's sounds too good to be true it is...applies here. Pricing is very attractive. You get what you pay for. We travelled only two hours to port embarkation which was very convenient. Embarkation was smooth and ... Read more
