Just got back last night

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona
The ship was beautiful, there were no problems incurred like the week before. The rooms were decent sized and the staff was wonderful. The food selections were good and the choices were plentiful.

The shows for the most part were excellent and the special effects were state of the art.

Boarding and departure was handled fast and efficient.

The only negatives I felt were the fact that there is no center staircase made for long walks to get to certain parts of the ship and I felt there was long waits for crowded elevators.

The one thing I didnt like was the fact that they didnt give you information as to how to get from the ship to certain areas such as Toulon , Mykonos and Venice that were a lot cheaper than what they suggested .

Example Venice , they automatically charged you $15 per person on your account for a round trip direct water taxi to St Marks square,and that was all you could get on and off.

There was a ticket you could More buy for $18 all day on and off a water taxi to get where ever you wanted to go. You had to go to the desk to have them remove this fee

We skipped a port due to high winds.( Better safe than sorry) they refunded all tours , but never mentioned port charges for that port, that they kept. Overall it was a great trip and we had a wonderful time Less

Cabin review:

Good size and I loved the fact that the hanging space and the bathroom is situated around the corner of the room. Plenty of room for clothes and your luggage without any problems of being underfoot
