Liked the first 6 days being at sea, very relaxing. On a large ship like this one, plenty to do if you want too. We took only one excursion, all the ports had do meting interesting just to walk to. Lisbon was a particular treat, ship focus near the old part of city. We enjoyed the food, ate at the buffet a lot...again, a larger ship has lots of variety even for gluten free and vegetarians. Lots of international items. Many European guests which was nice.
