Sail Date: Mar 2017
Cabin: Classic Ocean View
Traveled with children

Cruised out of Barcelona on March 20, 2017 with our 2 teenage daughters. We had two cabins next to each other.

The ship is beautiful and very large. OUr cabins were on the lowest deck. It was by far the nicest ocean view cabin I have ever had on a cruise ship. Very large with 2 bathrooms. Ports of call were all very nice.

Food was just average. Half the nights we ended up at the buffet for dinner instead of the dining room. We were assigned to open seating at Corona Blu. The nights we did eat there, we got right in. We were given free tap water. No problem. We also purchased a package to get bottled water.

Port Reviews

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

So beautiful. Walk from the ship to the town is about 45 minutes to an hour.

Rome (Civitavecchia)

3rd time in Rome. Took the bus to San Pietro Station which is close to the Vatican. Walked from the Vatican to the Colosseum.

La Spezia (Cinque Terre)

Took the train from La Spezia to Vernazza. Hiked from Vernazza to Corniglia. Incredible! Highlight of the trip!

Genoa

Port is in Savona. Cute town but not much to do and pretty far from Monaco.

Marseille

Not impressed.

Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities you are going to find. Spend the night here and walked around Las Rambles and the Gothic quarter.
