Sail Date: Aug 2016

flying out to Mallorca took under 2 hours. The coach trip from the airport took 20 minutes. The Cruise staff were quick and efficient with boarding. The ship itself is beautifully refitted. The balcony cabin was worth the extra money. You have a cabin boy allocated for your area on the ship. The food was varied and cooked to perfection. If you have any special dietary needs they will accommodate them easily. Spoiled for choice for eateries from A la cart to burgers. The service is brill, they can't do enough for you. place is kept very clean. Entertainment was varied and excellent. Didn't book any excursions as too expensive went on tour bus to see the cities we visited. I found the planned excursions were very crowded and busy. You can dress casual for some of the eateries and dress up for the more 'posh' restaurants. Would recommend this cruise to anyone that has not been on a ship. This is a smaller cruise liner.

Cabin Review

Cabin Balcony suite

The cabin was spacious and had a queen size bed. Compact shower room but functional. Ample storage for clothes and a safe for security. The balcony was big enough for two chairs and a small table. Air conditioned.

Beautiful city, lots to see and do without going on an expensive excursion.
