My husband and I were on our honeymoon. We wanted to do a Mediterranean cruise as neither of have ever even been on a cruise before. I didn’t know what to expect. I have to say, I had so much fun and enjoyed almost everything!

The ship is so breathtakingly huge and beautiful, it’s hard to not be taken back by it. It was clean and I loved the style and color scheme.

Boarding the ship in Barcelona was a breeze for us. We were on the ship in probably 10 minutes. We had small luggage so we just took them to our room ourselves. When we first got on the ship, we were greeted with a free glass of champagne and it just looked and sounded like a party. So we went to drop the bags in the room so we could join in the fun.

Barcelona was so beautiful and the people wear really friendly. I would highly recommend going to the bar Obama's and get a pornstar martini. So delicious!


Do capri on your own so you can see the whole island on your time. The blue grotto was closed the day we went due to rough seas sadly but it is still just a stunningly beautiful place.
