We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, which did not disappoint, and the reviews we had read about how great the Journey looked after her face lift. We agree that the ship looked so much better than it did in 2015. The staff was still amazing and very attentive to all of our needs.
The AzAmazing evening was OK, but many people couldn't see well because of the was the stage was set. If you weren't in the first three rows, it was very difficult to see the performers on the stage. Also the cocktails were minimal, poorly set up and few people knew there was food being passed until it was time to go into the show.
The food on board great and every venue showed variety and well prepared choices. The drinks package is OK but Azamara upcharges for certain brands that are included in the basic package for no additional charge on Celebrity. A few more bar and lounge areas would be welcome.

Had a full day tour of Valencia & Segundo on the first day with Spain Day Tours. Very good and very extensive. On the second day had a six person gastronomic walking tour of Valencia with Tours in Valencia. Amazing, very up close and personal, just a delight
Took the ship's tour to Girona. It was a good tour, full of information with an experienced guide. But, the ship was in port until late and the tour should have included free time for lunch and shopping, at least an additional 90 minutes.
An amazing city to see and visit, our guide was good, gave us a lot of history BUT...would question whether it is worth 1 1/2 hours each way on the bus.
