We cruised from Barcelona to Venice. It was organised to coincide with my wife’s 70th birthday. We had an excellent cabin on level 7 which was comfortable, well appointed and had a lovely balcony. We ate in all the specialty restaurants and found Jacques and the Italian most enjoyable. The entertainment was lacklustre and the wifi exasperating but these were minor hiccups on an otherwise fantastic trip. The day trips were well organised and the guides pleasant and knowledgeable. We are Australian and found that a large proportion of the other passengers were older Americans who managed to complain about almost everything including how hot it was in Europe in August as if the shipping line could do something about it. Still we kept largely to ourselves particularly in the dining rooms. We booked another cruise before we finished this one but this one cruising through Asia which hopefully with a more varied passenger list. Would thoroughly recommend this ship.

Fine ship, fine food, fantastic staff
