Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2017
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

Got on in Barcelona it was raining embarkation was pretty easy room was great had a balcony we were on level 12 right in the middle we didn't know what to expect as first timers but we had a great time met some really nice people we took the drinks package through our booking agents and it paid off as drinks averaged 5/6 euros each food was good shows were fine and weather was great ship was huge and lovely to walk around and find a nice sometimes quiet place to sit it had a sports bar showing all the football and boxing plenty of beds if you needed one to sunbathe staff work hard and ship started to really fill up as we neared the end of our cruise pizza was fab and there's enough variety to surely satisfy everyone we will sometime in the future do another cruise possibly in the Caribbean .Also the ports we stopped at where fine genoa and Valencia the stand out ones for us Marseille Palermo Cagliari Parma were nice just done the hop on bus tours which was fine we stayed on board at the Rome stop as been a few times and it was Sunday so we knew it would be very busy
