The buffet was really good, and the main dining room was good... although wait staff in general were lethargic and seemed to be sedated. Also, we bought the 3 night dining package and the Chef's table package... the 3 night package is not ... Read more

Embarkation was quick and efficient as was disembarkation .Although the ship could do with refurbishment or at least change to bedding the crew work hard at keeping it very clean. We were disappointed with the quality of the food in ... Read more

After 180 nights sailing with this shipping company, I have to say that although it maintains important quality levels, it is not about the best ships in the company and I do not talk about big or new. I had the pleasure of inaugurating ... Read more

Went with my mother (81yo) but found some of the distances from ship to shore difficult for her. Was disappointed that water was not supplied to the rooms. It cost $US2.00 per bottle. Wifi had to be purchased and that was about $US178 ... Read more

It has always been my dream to see the Greek Isles and this cruise offered that as well as several other ports. There were six of us traveling, 2 adults, 1 teen and 3 children, and there was something for everyone both on and off the ship. ... Read more

Trip was planned by friends as a gift to a graduate. I went along for the destinations. There wasn't enough time in ports of call. Didn't know alternate tours were offered when Cannes was canceled. Amenities were missing in the cabins. Too ... Read more

We selected this cruise because of the long list of ports of call. The opportunity to visit so many countries and still have a few days to relax at sea was very appealing and the cruise did not disappoint. Our favorite destinations were ... Read more

WE choose this cruise as we were going with friends who had never cruised before and liked the ports of call. We flew into Barcelona 2 days prior to our cruise and stayed at the hotel Abba Rambla, which was a basic 3 star not bad in itself ... Read more
