We've cruised RCI, Disney, Norwegian, and Princess. This was a great ship. It was the largest we've ever been on but we never felt that size except for all of the options of things to do. We stayed in an Owner's Suite and had great ... Read more

Chose this cruise as it suited our needs to travel the French and Italian Rivieras in the time we had. Overall it was okay but a few service issues relating to staff knowledge really could have been avoided. A few annoying frustrations ... Read more

The buffet was really good, and the main dining room was good... although wait staff in general were lethargic and seemed to be sedated. Also, we bought the 3 night dining package and the Chef's table package... the 3 night package is not ... Read more

After 180 nights sailing with this shipping company, I have to say that although it maintains important quality levels, it is not about the best ships in the company and I do not talk about big or new. I had the pleasure of inaugurating ... Read more

First, the tips: You really can have the time of your life--just remember that this is a money-making business and you are a money-spending passenger. So, spend wisely, have fun and don't presume the service is for any reason other than ... Read more

Having been on a large number of cruises with RC, Princess, Fred Olsen and others, I feel qualified to say that I know what to expect, and all the pros and cons of each one. I always preferred RC to any other, but after this latest cruise, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the destinations, the boat, and the amount of time it was at sea. Embarkation and disembarkation were chaotic in Barcelona, but it didn't seem like we missed anything. The ship is great, lots to see and ... Read more
