headed to Molara and Tavolara islands in Italy for snorkeling.
Beaches in Fermentera island, Ibiza. My top liked excursion

It was me and my mom on the Medditarenean cruise, our girls time went really good because of the itinerary, service, and excursions!!!

I would highly recommend booking excursions in advance to save your spot and attend on the ship entertainment which was amazing. We had a small issue with our bill, but the front desk collaborated with food & beverage department and resolved it.

Things for improvement 1. L'Aprodo restaurant disappointed us in poor choices and flavors of food. It was bland no flavor, in comparison to amazing delicious and various choices at the buffet on floor 11, Il Patio & Le Vele. Kudos to amazing buffet supervisor Osman Alfaro who always gave us VIP service as well. 2. A bigger swimming pool would be great. 3. Poor quality of toiletries, like shampoo and shower gel in each cabin. So you might want to bring your own.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin O1

Our cabin attendant - Loda Desire has been incredible to say the least. Attention to detail always smiled and greeted us in and out. We are happy to have chosen a room with a balcony with ocean view. It is worth it. Even if you don't spend time there, when laying in bed you can easily enjoy the water views. Loved it!

Really enjoyed the Molara and Tavolara island experience by a zodiac and snorkeling. Definitely explore this. Due to rain could not fully experience it all but happy I went out.


It was a great place to stroll around the city and it is so much to see as is, it was a full day so it allowed us to explore on our own. Great food, architecture, little narrow streets, watch your bags, there are some people working the street to steal from distracted tourists.
