Barcelona 2 days before departure - fantastic called H10 - apx 10 mins walk from beach, easy metro/underground to use Cruise 2 Adults from UK boarded ship (all age ranges on board and nationalities). Decor really over the top ! mirrors, colours, cleaning must be a nightmare ! Thought we were in a film set, ha ha Inside cabin good, service good all round on ship Dining geared to Italian taste, pasta pasta pasta, puddings not brilliant. Waited on meals -really didnt know what we were going to end up with, always a suprise, some good, some not so good (we are not fussy eaters) Drinks packages expensive and you cannot take any alcohol on board at any point, boarding and from trips, scanned bags on boarding every time and if found taken off you until end of cruise Entertainment ok but they have to translate into all languages and it becomes a bit tiresome for all. Hence no comedians. No cinema. Trips good, expensive. Even had to pay for shuttle bus to take into town from port 10 euro each Be careful if you have not been warned - you have to swipe you credit card with them on boarding for your drinks, purchases etc. The service charge (tips) were compulsory and it was 140 euro inclusive for both of us.

Board Barcelona, Marsielle, Savona, Naples, Sicily, Malta
