This was our 4th cruise but 1st with RCI. To us they have nailed everything spot on! We booked a private cab from Barcelona to the ship which was 57 euros return for 4 people, ziptransfers. Embarkment was less than 5 mins and we headed straight to the pool, we were relaxing by about 1130am! Cabins were ready around 2pm. I had booked the cheapest cabin, no window, in the dungeon bat cave on deck 2,perfet for days out! As far as I am concerned I am never in my room to need a window so why waste money. Cabin was by far the biggest we have ever had and our stateroom attendant was fab. We had booked anytime dining which was perfect and we never had to wait for a table.
All the shows in the theatre and Centrium were of a high standard, always lots to do onboard, somedays things classed and we found ourselves running to join in different things. The CD, Ricky Mathews, was hilarious, mad and mental and full of life and energy, his entertainment team buzzed off him, brilliant!
Sea days are as always busy round the pools, but even at 9am there were still beds empty so not to bad, the adults only pool was beautiful but they never pulled the glass roof back? The park cafe in the adult pool was delicious for salads and toasties.
