Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We received the table setting arrangements that we requested. The food was just outstanding. Most nights, we requested an additional entree because the selections were so great and appetizing. The buffet was open for all meals with each day being a different country theme. Low calorie foods were availble as well as sugar fee items.

Theeree activities scheduled for morning, noon and night. The broadway shows were astounding. We didn't miss a night. We also enjoped the activities that the guest were included.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The entire staff was wonderful. Our stateroom attendant greeted us upon our arrival and gave us instuctions on where to find things on the ship. Our waiter and assistant waiter were always willing to make meal time a great experience. The assistant Maitre'D came by our table each evening the see if there was anything that he could do to make our evening meal better. He suprised us on the third evening with crab cakes which were not on the menu. I had asked him the previous evening if crab cakes were on the menu. Crab cakes were not on the menu the entire trip. This was a great suprise that we shared with our adjourning table.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was just he right size. It's guest capacity was less than 800 guest, which is much different from the mega ships.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an oceanview stateroom with a large viewing area. The bed was kingsize and we had ample space for our clothing and personal items.

We enjoyed a self tour of Cadiz. There is a tourist bus that takes you over the city.

We did a self walking tour downtown from the port. We arrived on Sunday so most stores were closed. The mall, which was in walking distance from the ship was open and some shops on the main street were open. Language was a problem but we were able to find some persons that spoke English so we were able to enjoy our time ashore on our own.

We were able to get a personal tour guide to show us the old city of Lisbon and the ancient catherals and monestary. Lisbon is a beautiful city. We passed under the 'April 25th Bridge' on April 25 which was a coincidence. We saw the Freedom Monument and the statue of Christ that was a gift from Brazil.

Pros: Ports of Call

Cons: Crossing the Straits of Gibraltar at Night
