This was our first cruise and I have to say we are total converts. The ports on this cruise were all interesting and varied. The organisation from the cruise line to get the right passengers on the right excursions with the right guides and done in such a light-hearted, non stressful way deserves recognition itself. The ship never felt cramped, the food was good and varied and the crew were unbelievably helpful and pleasant on each and every occasion that we needed them. How people can complain about the entertainment I have no idea, the "On The Bayou" show was as good as any West End musical that I have seen, yes they were only 30-40 minutes long but with bars on almost every deck and food available from dawn until midnight why tie people down to a theatre for longer than necessary? A wonderful, interesting and simply brilliant experience that I will be repeating asap. Read Less

This was our 1st cruise so did not really know what to expect. When we arrived in Barcelona we were met by our driver who drove us to the port. Embarking was well organised, staff friendly and helpful. Our cabin was large, clean and comfortable. Horizon restaurant had lots of choices and the food very good, we also had 2 lovely meals in the Bordeaux where we enjoyed afternoon tea also. We chose not to book excursions with the ship instead we hired a driver at each port which worked out cheaper each driver was very friendly and took us to some lovely places of interest and to beautiful italian resturants for lunch Sorrento being one of our favorites. The service on board was exceptional there was always happy friendly staff to bring drinks whenever we wanted them. We spent a lot of evenings in "Crooners bar" all staff there made us very welcome especially Savio Fernandes, Sandeep Gaikwad & Jenalyn Salvador. Dan and Duke were great hosts and we enjoyed the british pub night. One criticism there are not enough smoking areas otherwise had a great time already looking to book another. Read Less
