7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)

Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony

Having a living room meeting place for solos was so helpful. Our expert leader made dining together easy.  I also had great assistance from the service desk. A nice young lady (sorry not to have gotten her name) when above and beyong to call Delta to insure I had assistance thru the airport.  Instructions were clear and disembarking went smoothly.

I was very tired after 9 hr. flight but was glad to have the tour as otherwise I would have missed Barcelona altogether.

A favorite. The train ride was breezy and cool. A welcome I am a tennis fan of Nadal. The life of Georgia Sands and Chopin was interesting as well.
