Occupied level 9 Cabin with veranda. Cruise commenced Barcelona with various brief stops and concluded in Fremantle Australia. Pros 1. Cabin well appointed serviced by excellent staff. 2. Excellent wait staff in dining rooms. Cons 1. Embarkation took over 3 hours. Disembarkation was reasonable. 2. Emergency drill was so inept that only those on the bridge had any chance od escape. 3. Variety of food very good however it was not put together by kitchen hands. Quality was poor. 4. Non English speaking Captain. 5. Ship should have been quarantined from the third day until the thirty first day as a result of an outbreak of severe gastro with ambulances called in Malaysia to offload critical cases. 6. Duty Free shopping was ultra expensive with many items flea market quality. Could have purchased any item on Ebay for half. 7. Identical shore excursions could have been bought 60% cheaper from the wharf. 8. No live coverage of major sporting events despite the fact there was live streaming on the internet. 9. Cost of drinks out of the ball park. 10. Management more concerned with promoting Casino and providing free grog and entertainment to frequent travellers in private areas. 11. Entertainment was patchy but overall fair. 12. Activities were only fair. 13. Internet and telephone calls costs outrageous. Summary Senior staff were overall lazy, inept and unapproachable. Avoid at all costs sailing for 35 days and clocking up kilometres on water. Would not have been surprised to have hit an iceberg. This company is a no no as evidenced by its plummeting stock market value. Read Less
