We chose this cruise because of its itinerary. Putting sea days in the middle of port days allows for time to recharge after doing tours.
We left out of Barcelona without touring the city, which worked out to be best as there were riots in the area that have hopefully been resolved.
Embarking at Barcelona was a breeze. No line ups at 12:00 and we were on board in less than 30 minutes. Room was ready, which was an extra treat
Basic cabin with chair rather than couch. Balcony was a good size and lots of room for clothes and hangers. Shower stall was tight, but so are most older cruise ships.
Need shuttle to get off of ship at this port
Scenic Drive, Sanary-sur-Mer & Bandol
Two laid back towns with many boats in the harbour and surrounded by small cafes
