Amazing ship! Wonderful ports!

Sail Date: September 18, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We have traveled with RCI many times but this ship has outdone them all! The service was impeccable,the amenities excellent and the ports of call wonderful. The food,surprisingly, we give four stars. Not as varied as in other RCI ships. One problem was the size of the ship limits access to regular ports  where the town's were within walking distance.RCI  provides buses but in some cases at a cost. We only took one RCI excursion and it was good(Pisa &Lucca ) from La Special. The others were pre arranged private tours. Our only regret is not having enough time to enjoy the attractions on the ship. Only one day at sea made it hard to do all the fun stuff ! Most excursions lasted all day ,not wanting to miss anything at ports of call.

Barcelona, Spain
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Marseille (Provence), France
La Spezia, Italy
Take Lucca and Pisa tour . Florence has so much to see that it is not worth doing in 2-3 hours
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Naples, Italy
Go to Pompeii and Capri. The visit to Sorrento and Positano,although beautiful scenery,not worth it! They are tourist shopping traps.


Formal night not so formal! Did not " dress up"once! Make show reservations prior to sailing. My time dining was great for us because we have emerald status, but make reservations ahead to avoid waiting lines. Days are long in ports so plan accordingly. Use Royal IQ.
