My wife and I wanted to visit Barcelona again as we did not spend as much time the last time we were in Spain in the spring of 2015. The Transatlantic Cruise seemed just what we wanted to do as we had heard great reviews about westbound Transatlantic Cruises and Royal Caribbean did not disappoint us. The staff was great and I would recommend a cruise like we took to anyone interested in a Transatlantic Cruise.

I do have some caveats concerning the cruise ratings and my two complaints are; food in the main dining room, while very good, on two occasions was served cold and the other complaint is; drink prices are just two expensive. I know cruise ships have to make money, but come on; a glass of wine on the ship costs as much, if not more than a bottle of wine through a land based liquor store in the United States. Buy the drink package is also very expensive. $51.00 a day per person, plus 18% is way too expensive, in my opinion.

However, don't let my caveats tarnish a cruise like this if you do not enjoy a cocktail, wine or beer while cruising or you don't imbibe.
