We arrived in Barcelona and embarked the ship with ease, very organise and well executed process. This is the largest ship we have been on so we were a little apprentice of what to expect. When we first stepped on the ship it soon back apparent that the layout was very different to the many ships we had been on before. After a couple of days we were soon used to it and loved the ship.
We didnt find it anymore crowded then other ships we had been on and found a lovely quiet area to relax above H2O.
All the food we had was good with the exception of O'Sheenans, this was poor quality and my husband had to send his back as the cottage pie was cold! The other 'free' dining areas were good with Manhattan being the one we visited twice. The buffet is the same as every other ship, busy and repeated food but still pretty good and We always got a seat.
