Review summary

This was a trip of a lifetime! this was our first time to Europe and we wanted to make sure we saw as much as possible. I felt the cruise was a great way to do that. All in All i would definitely recommend this cruise and would suggest any Americans looking to go to Europe take Norwegian where everything on board is in English and they use american currency.

very clean, we did not feel crowded at all

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
We did not like the sink in the middle of the cabin, and we did not care fr the entire layout. The bathroom door did not provide any privacy and the TV was positioned too high to watch from bed. The TV needs to be able to adjust down

The cabins are awful

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

5 out of 5
We hailed a cab in the port of Livorno, they charged us $100 Euro to go to the town of Pisa and come back. It was about a 25 min ride. The driver was very nice and it proved to be a good deal. we spent about 5 hours walking around Pisa and seeing the sights.

Cannes, France

5 out of 5
We walked to the beach by the port. We visited all the shops and had a very nice day

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands

5 out of 5
This was a great day, although we arrived at 1 PM we went to Magaluf beach. It was a 30 min cab ride that cost us $22 Euro, be careful they only allow 4 in a cab. Also getting a cab back from the beach was insane, we almost missed the boat back


5 out of 5
we left the ship at 6am, it was a breeze
