Great experience but this ship was made for the Caribbean

Giant corporate group ruined cruise.

As an experienced traveller, I was looking forward to my first RC cruise. There were definitely positives, but also a few large negatives. Food - good selection, no complaints. Not excellent food but definitely ...

Great ship with lots of features

Embarkation Barcelona: The quickest easiest I have ever had. They grab your luggage as you exit the taxi and don't have to haul it through any lines. Had a Jr suite so had priority check in and nobody was in line ...

Nice Ship; Very Basic Cabin; Cruise Director Not the Best

This ship is certainly big and there are so many beautiful features to see. The shows are brilliant particularly Mamma Mia but the Ice Games show and the Aqua Show were also brilliant. The food was a little below ...
