We had a great time!  The ship was nice, the staff were great.  The dining room food was disappointing, if you've ever been on other cruises.  But, overall everything was good.  There was no special food for formal nights.  I've heard the Europeon cruises don't offer the same quality of food. Also, we had asked for a table for 2 by ourselves since we were on our honeymoon.  They didn't do that, so we had to ask and the next night they had placed a small table between 2 big tables, so closely that everytime the server tried to get through, he knocked our table.   They seemed to also be understaffed in the Windjammer Café.  Tables would stay dirty for a long time while people were trying to find a place to sit.  I booked 2 excursions with the ship and 5 with another company.  The other company was cheaper and had smaller groups and were actually better excursions.

The cabin was roomy for a cruise ship. I wouldn't pay a lot extra for the oceanview because we rarely looked out. It let more light in so it was harder to sleep late on sea days.

Spend some extra time in Barcelona and be sure to see the Basilica de la Segrada Familia! It's Gaudi's cathedral creation and it is amazing!
