We chose this ship for price, and itinerary. We have cruised before with Norwegian, Royal Caribean, Carnival, Princess, and Disney.
Embarkation was strange but did go pretty fast. You got to a counter and they give you a number, when your number is called you can board the ship.
Passengers: 80% Germans, rest were Italians, Spaniards and French. We did not noticed any Americans on board and I think we were the only Canadians. It did not bother us at all since we speak French and English.
