Super ship but disappointed with Itinerary. Just five Ports to visit in 12 days Initial three days at sea before reaching Barcelona frankly seemed too long.

Why for example pass Vigo, Lisbon,Malaga, or even Palma and forge on all the way to Barcelona cannot comprehend the thinking behind this. On the plus side the Entertainment particularly the Dancers and Singers were truly awesome.

They put on a breathtaking show every night each one on a different theme. The Costumes and sets on a par with any West End Production. Comedians and Solo acts also very good. The Lectures were first class. But dear oh dear the

Dining Room was a monumental disappointment. The word miniscule would best describe the size of every portion no matter what the dish on offer. Certainly one did not have to watch one`s weight when tackling the Menu this had been taken care of for you.
