Additional details

Sail Date: Jul 2011
Cabin: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

yes it was ...firstly, the organising was first rate.everything from landing at the airport to embarking the ship went very smoothly.our lovely stateroom attendant " smurdy " soon introduced herself and what a treasure she was.

all the staff on board from dining to maintenance,work tirelessly with smiling faces to please...dining is no problem with the choice of food on offer ,although some nationalities do tend to pile their plates high then leave an unnecessary amount.sometimes it is difficult to find an area to sit in ,but that is to be expected with the vast amount of people on board.

we never had a problem with queueing to get on and of the ship and the little boats to take you in to cannes are a delight.entertainment very good.give this ship a go its worth it.wig and gavel was a big hit .staff lovely ,always greeted you with a big grin...i would like to see the gratuities go to waiters in schooner bar and wig and gavel please

Port Reviews

Genoa

genoa is quite a hike to get into the town .one tour bus took us round the town for about 30 minutes dropped us off at some point but we never saw it again.and it was quite a walk to get back to the ship.this should be looked into

Corsica (Ajaccio)

easy to access .coming out of the port into a market area .pleasant walking.

Cannes

lovely. nice touch with the little boats to take you into the harbour area.

Barcelona

bus needed .nice drop off point .not to far to get to la ramblas.plenty of excursion buses on hand

Las Palmas (Gran Canaria)

must get the bus or you could spend most of your time ashore getting to any point of interest.
