Cabin:

We got a great deal on this cruise and loved the itinerary. The ship was beautiful and in great condition. My husband was missing the outdoor movie screen he so enjoys. Our cabin was spacious with plenty of storage space. I did not like the shower as the shower head was fixed and not detachable. In a small space this is an annoyance. The food in the dinning room was a huge disappointment. We had been told that it was superior but we found our Royal Caribbean dinning room experience to easily surpass it. That said, the Seaview Café was very good. The in house shows were excellent as was Jayne Curry but the magician, juggler and other entertainment were not impressive. Our cruise director Alejandro was very good but the Activities director was near unbearable. The wait staff in the dinning room were wonderful as was the staff in general. We were surprised though to arrive in our cabin to find to TP or tissues and we never received our onboard spending statement before getting off the ship. We only booked one of our excursions on the ship and it was fine. One other things was that the lifeboats are not suspended so that deck has very limited visibility.

Port Reviews

Barcelona

We arrived in the pouring rain. Embarkation went smoothly.

Cartagena (Spain)

We took an excursion through Cruising Excursions and it was excellent. There is so much history here. Not to be missed is the Roman Theatre that was discovered in 1987 and is beautifully restored. We dock right in town which is always a delight.
