7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip) Sail Date: May 12, 2013 Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 4 years ago
This was a good cruise if you don't like days at sea. The first day was the only one we did not visit a port and some ports you had to travel over an hour by bus, train, or taxi to get to the site. I would prefer at least 2 days at sea to take advantage of all the things offered on board and to relax. Anytime dining has advantages but it also does not let you get to know your waiters and meet other passengers. I did learn never to wear a tux again on European cruises. I also felt they could have used the sports court better by offering a variety of sports on their schedule rather than just soccer. I had just come off a 15 day cruise comprised of mostly older retired passengers but we still had over 20 people who played VB almost everyday. The specialty dining places are nice but really appear just a way for the company to make more money since the dining rooms serve good food. Getting on and off the ship was excellently run every time.
