Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda 1C

We chose this cruise as we had enjoyed our first cruise on board the Reflection a year previous. Ironically the Reflection was alongside us in Barcelona , which brought back happy memories. We knew the cabin would be well appointed with an attentive steward to assist us. The excellent crew member who allocated my wife and I to a table for 2 each evening was brilliant, We prefer to eat at 19.00 - 20.00, but on this occasion we went to see a show in the Theatre at 19.00 and then went into the main restaurant at 20.00. The shows were usually of a very good standard and this was a great start for the evening. The meals were very good and as the waiters were so happy to ensure you had exactly what you wanted and the quality was up there with great restaurants in London. The only downside was the excessive charges for dining in the Specialist restaurants. The Ports were ideally chosen allowing you to visit places of interest, such as Mount Etna, Sorento and the wonderful Florence. We deliberately chose early October in order not to have children on board, and this proved to be a great time to holiday.

Port Reviews

Malta (Valletta)

A lovely City, with bags of histry

Corsica (Ajaccio)

A stunning journey around Ajjaccio

Florence (Livorno)

It was wonderful, unfortunately Sundays are a day to avoid as huge queues for museums and cathedral

Barcelona

Didn`t have time to do anything due to flight times

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Walked into town which is very easy, the streets are steeped in history and well worth just being there.

Taormina (Messina)

Been before,

Positano (Amalfi)

Been before stayed on ship as the heavens opened

Rome (Civitavecchia)

Walked into town, which is really quite poor. Went to Rome last year
