Positive reviews of this ship helped me make the right decision. I was travelling with a disabled mum, so knew this ship would be good for her too. The cabin was 3104 - accessible and was great for mum’s wheelchair and scooter. The steward was lovely and kept the cabin clean and tidy for us. The staff are amazing! Annoy do enough to help you. The main areas we enjoyed were the upper deck of the pool - deck 14 - still in the sun, but away from the kids in the pool. The solarium was lovely too, just a shame it’s inside. We spent lots of time in the Passport Bar as this was closest to our cabin, and when entertainment was in the Grand Foyer you could enjoy it. The MDR was lovely, we chose our times and sat upstairs - cannot fault the food or the staff... in fact I preferred the steak in the MDR to to Tuscan Grille. I had a mixology class which was great fun. I also had a lovely facial... but BE WARNED.... I booked the cheapest one - which was still an arm and a leg... and she changed it without telling me, then when she said the bill total it was way more than I had planned. She said the facial I chose wasn’t right for my skin type, but as she didn’t want me about this I refused to pay the extra and she agreed to this.... they do add tip on - even though I had prepaid tips. The casino was great fun as were the quizzes and games shows. And the shows themselves were good - just one duff one out of two weeks. Sue the Cruise Director was great too! We did our own private tours of Rome and Tuscany - £500 for up to six people... better value than the boat excursions. We did the hop on off bus in Barcelona and Marseille. The shuttle cost was steep in one of the ports €20 each, but other shuttles were cheaper. It was great to get mum into the cities!

First time cruise which met my expectations

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Barcelona
    Hop on and off bus was excellent, so much to see! I saw a lot of Barcelona that I hadn't seen before and this was my third trip to this lovely city. Great for disabled people too, Mum took her scooter on board and the tour guides were helpful getting us on and off.

  • City Tour
    Simona was excellent, she drove us around all day and explained the sights as we went. She even took us into the Tuscan hills to see a vineyard and for a quick photo opportunity. She booked lunch for us as well! All in all excellent trip for four of us it was €480 - which was excellent value!

  • Gibraltar
    Walked into the town and back. Didn’t want to see the monkeys, but some bargains were had in the shops!

  • City Tour
    A bit of a guided tour, only half a day but limited information given by the guide.
    Saw key sights but don't feel I really saw everything.

  • Transfer
    We took the shuttle into the town and then the hop on and off bus. Apart from a nice harbour and a Cathedral there isn't much to see, in my opinion. Nice to say we've seen it!

  • Private Tour
    More of a taxi than a guided tour. Still great for my disabled mum. We were driven right to the centre and only a few steps from every main attraction.
    Much cheaper than the ship excursions. We paid €500 between six of us for a full (ish) day - 8-3.30.
