Sail Date: Jul 2016
Cabin: Interior

Chose the cruise based on its destinations and also for its reputation of good food and comfortable beds which I have to say I wasn't impressed with.

Cabins are noisy and aluminated with light from outside the cabin door which you can do little about. The beds are too soft and we both suffered bad backs and necks during our cruise. The entertainment provided on the stateroom television is excellent though and at no extra cost to watch a wide selection of the latest movies.

Dining was uninspiring, not a wide selection of choice and generally very average. On occasions you would get a good selection of food. The specialty restaurants that you pay extra for though are excellent if you can afford it. The onboard Pizza that is available throughout the day is very good.

Interior

Noisy, light and uncomfortably soft beds and pillows. Room wasn't an issue and had plenty of space for cloths and toiletries etc Stateroom steward was excellent.

Port Reviews

Gibraltar

My 2nd time here but love exploring the place each time, so unique.

Genoa

Confined to cabin

Florence (Livorno)

Confined to cabin

Barcelona

Shuttle bus provided to get near to the center. Plenty to see on foot but would recommend public transport for sites such as Park Guell (Gaudi) as its a long walk.

Southampton

Ideal location as we live local.
