Wonderful Trip

It was our first time to Europe, and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Spain, Italy and France.  The weather was beautiful, and so was the ship.  The cruise staff did and a great job keeping everyone involved in activities, and having a good time.  The trip was fast paced as almost every day we were in a new port with lots of things to see.  I highly recommend taking a tour, or hiring a driver.  The roads and driving scene is not at all like the US, and our one venture driving in Barcelona, was exhilarating, and harrowing at the same time.  Take my word for it, and leave the driving to the pros.  The embarkation left a little bit to be desired as there was a long line, and it took a while to get through check in.  They needed more of a covered area to wait in.  Debarkation was extremely smooth, with little to no waiting at all.  Our room steward did a great job, and the wait staff in the restaurants did a great job also.  I really had no complaints, and couldn't have asked for anything more.  It was our first time cruising with a balcony stateroom, and now I will be hard pressed to cruise any other way.  It was delightful to get out of bed in the morning, and go out to the balcony and watch as the ship cruised in to the port, and docked.

Loved the Balcony. The room size was adequate for two.
