I chose this cruise because of the itinerary but I should have paid more attention to the ship and cruise line. The buffet was lukewarm and didn't have much variety. We went once to the to the sit-down restaurant my girlfriend isn't picky, and she only ate half her meal. The sheets and comforter were stained. Only a sheet at the bottom so just sleeping with the comforter was too hot, I slept with a couple of beach towels. One of our excursions was canceled due to not enough people, they didn't tell us we had to go to the excursion desk to find out why we didn't our tickets. The soap dispenser was clogged, we had to ask for wash cloth. Got in a ping pong tournament and the guy could not keep track of the score properly (it's not complicated). We have done a dozen cruises and this was the worst one.

We stayed in Barcelona 3 days before the cruise, and we did the on and off bus tour, but it was a bit hard finding some of the stops. Saw all the main things it was great.
