Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Balcony
Cabin  More than enough for the little time we spent there
Balcony was romy
So relaxing being at the back of the ship enjoying the view
The piazza
So beautiful
Roomy enough for the cruise
Balcony was small but able to sit OK
View from the back of the ship

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

Cabin Review


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.

Port Reviews


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
