Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Junior Suite Accessible

Embarking and disembarking on this ship were very well organized and went quickly. The ports of call on this trip were excellent. We got to stay overnight in Lisbon, Portugal which gave extra time to see the area. It was our first time in all of the ports except Barcelona where we departed from. Cartagena felt very safe to walk around to all of the main historic sites which were not far from the dock Malaga and Seville were excellent stops. One of the most beautiful scenic stops was Ponta Delgada in the Azores. This is a must see, and we were fortunate to have good weather. This is a very nice size ship, one of our favorite with a lot of windows including glass elevators facing the ocean. All of the crew that we interacted with were very friendly. The food was very good and we got to experience Chops and Giovanni's which were both top shelf. The entertainment on this trip were the best ever; we are still talking about it and listening to the CD's that we bought on board. Jimmy Hopper a singer/entertainer from Vegas, The Barricade Boys who had the most incredible harmony and Mary-Jess, an incredibly talented young singer. I would make this exact trip again in order to see more things in the ports.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite Accessible

For a Jr. Suite, this was very large with plenty of space and storage. We had a walk-in closet with shelves and plenty of hangers and space. The balcony ran the width of the cabin and was very comfortable I believe we were under the Windjammer because I could wake up with the first rolling of carts around 6 am each day. We did have problems with the TV a few times, but they were very prompt in coming to fix it.

Port Reviews

Barcelona

We stayed in Barcelona for 2 nights before we left on the cruise to explore this city This was our second time there are we enjoyed walking around to several sites including the Casa Batillo.
