Embarkation was the fastest and easiest ever! The logistic of this ship is amazing. The shows are very high quality. Don't miss Mamma Mia's show. This Cruise has 5 ports of call.

Naples, Italy: close to the Amalfi coast, we visited Sorrento, Pompéi and Positano (on the Amalfi coast) with Fabrizio (Leasure Italy) and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a perfect day in this port. He modified our itinerary to avoid the heavy traffic, added a stop in Sorrento to an olive local factory after I mentioned my interest about it and brought us to a little restaurant for lunch where we were treated like family.

Barcelona: A guide brought us to the cathedral designed by Gaudi, design and Colors are remarkable. We also visited one of the house he designed and we could recognize his style. The Guell park also designed by Gaudi was the best part of this day.

Palma de mallorca: a good way to visit this port is to get on the public bus (Line 1) and go into Town for 1.5 euro per person. You can go up to the cathedral by bus if this is what you wish to visit. Nice Island with alot of flowers and old mills.

Marseille: we had booked a tour with Viator to visit a vinery but our tour guide notified us of the obligation to cancel our tour because his vehicle was controlled by a police roadblock and they confiscated the vehicle because of the yearly vehicle Check was pass due. Since we only found out about this cancellation on the morning of the tour we were kind of forced to use the shuttle offered by RCCL at 23$/pers to go into Marseille center (8kms). In this port we took a mini train which brought us to the cathedral up in the mountain for 8euros/pers. Nice little which permited us to not have lost our whole day with this last minute cancellation.

La Spezia: we went to Florence (2hrs drive) to see the David of Michael Ange and then we drove (1hr) to Pisa to climb the tour for which we had a reservation made about 1 month priori to our visit our driver was very informative but the guide in Florence was ordinary.

The best part of this tour was the stop we did at Michaelangelo plans to see the city and the bridge from this point.

With these ports, there isn't enough time explore the ship and do everything this ship has to offer. We did do the zip Line which was alot of fun, we did not have Time to try the flowrider but it seemed like people on it were having a great time.
