Cruise covered a wide span and interesting ports of call. Some were new and some were old. We just immersed ourselves in the beautiful localities whenever we can. Also, the weather was favourable at this time of the year. Hence, it was a popular cruise. See pictures attached of the ports visited, Cartagena, Corfu, Dubrovnik, Hvar, Venice, Cagliari, Gibraltar and La Coruna.

Lots of on varied on board activities from morning to midnight that suit different people. We liked dancing and so, we enjoyed it very much. Picked up a few tricks from Shane and Jessica, the dancing instructors. They show cased some great performances during the voyage. Our Guernsey dining companions loved table tennis, paddle tennis and etc and so they are up the decks whacking the balls against their competitors whenever they could. Another Southampton dining companion, preferred to read and walked around the promenade decks and critique the paintings on sale. She is an art restorer and knows more than we do. One day, we tried foil fencing. We had so much laughter playing Errol Flynn and the white jackets and fence were great for pictures. Each to our own taste and liking. And we enjoyed sharing jokes and trips and going to the shows together when we could.

The musicals were very enjoyable even though we have seen some before on earlier cruises. QV premiered one musical which most of us felt, that it was excellent. The dancers were definitely very good. The singers were a little too loud for some and were probably let down by the sound system which is preprogrammed and hard to control. But when they sing softly, it is just so beautiful. The NZ lady singer Lara for the Queens Orchestra Room, definitely can belt some lovely old favourite songs to everybody's liking. Look, even the gentleman head of the Royal Court Theatre Orchestra can sing some nice jazzy tunes when they play jazz at the Golden Lion pub. Save your money visiting the touristy French Quarter in Louisiana, USA.
