We were on the Marina 3 years ago and was not wowed. This time it had improved tremendously. The food and service was much better. We had one bad meal in the Dining Room and the rest were either good to GREAT! My favorite dining experience was in Toscanno and least favorite specialty was Red Ginger. (It was the opposite last time) The only negatives were the high price of excursions. We did most on our own but had to do the Alhambra in Granada as we couldn't find space on a private tour. We paid $320.00 each for such excursion, while the private tours were running approximate $150.00 per person. The entertainment at night was not terrific, and most of the time we didn't bother going. The best capacino's are in the coffee shop near the library. (love the biscotti's) It is just such a beautiful ship, never had to wait for anything. The ship was kept ship shape! There is no nickel and diming like we have experienced on Celebrity.

Better the Second Time Around

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin B1 8101
huge amount of storage, not to far from elevators. We did hear some "bangs" which I believe came from the room next door when they opened their sleeper couch. Great bathroom.
