We chose this cruise for the ports and for the fact that we would embark and disembark in Barcelona (one of our favourite cities). We had a few glitches on the first day but after that everything fell into place and the rest of the cruise was wonderful. When we booked the only OV cabin available was 3174 and we were worried that it would be noisy but we had no problems throughout the cruise. Our stateroom attendant (Nasveeta) was most attentive and we had no issues with our room. We found that the Ocean View lunchtime buffet food had improved considerably since our Silhouette cruise two years ago. The choices were excellent especially of local cheeses, salami etc The evening meals in the MDR ( Moonlight Sonata) were very good and if I chose something not to my taste it was quickly replaced.The service was very attentive. We dined once in Tuscan Grill which was fine but not as good as I remembered on the Silhouette. The service was probably no better than the MDR and it was very difficult to attract the attention of the sommelier. On the other hand, we had an amazing meal in Murano with the most attentive service from the waiter and the sommelier. We could not have hoped for more. We were "wowed" by the variety of entertainment/shows though we did not enjoy the two bands ... The Badness were too loud (for our tastes). We were very lucky to have Gilly and the Girl on the cruise and we went to nearly all of their sets and shows - very talented, engaging and playing music that we really enjoyed. We occasionally heard Sashi (guitarist) - very enjoyable and the string duet who were lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed all the shows by the guest entertainers ( except the hypnotist and I didn't find anyone who enjoyed his show). The productions shows were mostly amazing. We struggled occasionally to find drinks/wine at the level of our packages but by visiting several bars we eventually managed to find something we liked (Thank you to Sedat, Dipil, Lewin, Roldan and, especially Ganesh who truly went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy and had everything we wanted). In Elizabeth we think we have found the best Captain's Club host we have encountered for a long time. She was everywhere, greeting and chatting with guests and, making all feel welcome and appreciated. We did not take any X shore excursions but explored on our own. We particularly appreciated the overnight in Dubrovnik and the opportunity to be there in the evening when most of the tour groups had left and the lights came on and it was magical!

Surpassed all our expectations
