This was our first cruise - a bit of a learning curve! A big hiccup at the airport as one of our suitcases was lost and we were just left to our own devices to report it, which we did but we were delayed by over an hour. It was not until ... Read more

We got off to a good start as flight was on time, efficient transfer to the ship. We had a drink and bite to eat and went to our cabin to find luggage already delivered. As we had a very early start - left home at 2 am - we did not see ... Read more

Brilliant cruise for a first time cruise! We didn't explore Palma on our first day as we was mainly on the sun deck but wish we would have. Embarking and disembarking the ship was easy every day as it was as simple as finding the gangway ... Read more
