Great first time experience

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona
Never being on a cruise before, this was so enjoyable...!!.the finishings and the decorating were truly superb ..our room was fabulous, and we lucked in to the larger balcony (room E407) The steward Ignaccio couldn't do enough for us and was at our door in minutes if needed.

We booked in the Allegro for dinner each nite, but found after a few nites that the food was even better in the Horizon much to choose from and much more interesting...But saying that, the service in the dining room was amazing...we were greeted each nite by a line of servers, that made us feel so special as we walked to our table...Our server was Ileana from Romania...loved her..she is the best....

shore excursions could have been shorter and/or less crowded!!!

A couple of down points:

-the elevators were so aggravating ..couldn't tell which was going up or down and were crowded

-internet service was so averaged $10. per e-mail and they More were just short ones to family

-need better signage to the allegro dining room, put down to the location

-beverage card was costly and didn't included canned pop, only the "soda shop" kind (watered down) and not value for money Less
