Fantastic. Lovely ship. Apart from a slight case of norovirous which was nipped in the bud very quickly by the Captain and his staff.

To be honest I thought I was in Turkey or morroco.

Gibraltar (U.K.)

3 out of 5
Been a few times. But also used to live here. It's changed a lot since the 80's. Downside is it's the shortest port call out of them all. Had to be back on board by 13:30. NOT sure it was worth getting off.
