The scenery everyday is awesome. Going through the locks was very interesting.

Butlers and bartenders were friendly knowledgeable and attentive. Food was delicious and varied. I am allergic to shellfish and felt they could have done a better job of ensuring that there was options when shellfish was on the menu. Portobellos the Portuguese restaurant was excellent with magnificent service. The evening Crystal dining room had a varied menu. We found the service very slow on the nights that the speciality service/restaurants were open.

Loved the butler service for morning coffee! Relaxed before breakfast and enjoyed the scenery.

The Portugese bar b que up on the sun deck was very good. Ribs were amazing!

The musician was entertaining and engaged the crowd. One night there was local entertainment which was also very good and engaging!

Cabins were efficient but small. Bathrooms were well appointed. The tours were good but some required too long a bus ride. A few were sick and not enough was done to find out why. Probably the heat as it was very hot Throughly enjoyed the trip though. Cruise directors were very knowledgeable. We took the three days in Lisbon prior which very worth the extra days. Porto was beautiful with great tours.

Enjoyed the cooking class tour of the galley and being able to interact with the chef

Very efficient boarding. A little confusion on the embarking as they moved us to a hotel. The lunch at the hotel was not very good compared to the ship

Cabin Review

Cabin Balcony suite 215

Small but efficient bathroom very functional. The hairdryer could not be plugged into the outlet in the bathroom and requires me to use the desk outlet. I was told this was a safety issue which does not make sense and there was an outlet in the bathroom. Great amenities. Housekeeping was very good
