Review summary

A romantic trip and the opportunity to get a full taste of Europe. Take your time and soak everything in. Majorca & Barcelona are not to be missed. Spend a few days before cruising in Barcelona (Gothic District) walking around. Highly suggest the Hop-On/Hop-Off buses and late evening walks to the courtyards for dinner & wine. Don't miss an excursion to Montserrat (sp).

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was good but not excellent.

Ice Bar

4 out of 5

A bit expensive and half our guests left because of the cold...duh, its going to be cold. Very fun but make sure everyone's a bit lit beforehand and ready to make their own fun. Bar is kind of quiet so bring the party.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Bingo....try a game or two for fun but it can quickly become expensive and a waste of time. The Deal/No Deal game was fun to watch.


3 out of 5
Crowded and quality was uninspiring. Lounge acts were great, particularly the piano bars which engage the crowd. Comedy shows were good.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Good. Never wanted for anything. Seldom saw our steward as he respected our privacy.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Needs more elevators for such a large ship

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a balcony cabin which greatly extends the overall spaciousness.
