We flew down from Newcastle and checked in smoothly and quickly. We found the ship to be very big and luxurious. The cabin was spacious even though it was an inside one, the bed was big and comfortable and our cabin attendant was very good. The dining was excellent, both the free time dining and the three extra restaurants we paid for. The meals were all presented promptly and were hot and very tasty. The bars were all very good with lots of different drinks and cocktails. The evening entertainment was brilliant and the ice show was outstanding, you would never think you were on a ship to have this sort of entertainment.
The shore excursion we took was very good, Lisbon for Seville. The coach journey was very good and we had plenty of time in Seville to have a look around. All in all a very good cruise which we really enjoyed.
