Review summary

Although things did not work out the way it started, overall I feel they did what was best to be safe. I do appreciate that safety was number one and I commend the staff and crew that had to deal with a lot of disappointed and not so pleasant travellers..

Food was good. Had the option to go to Teppanyaki, Bistro, Cagney's and La Cucina and we enjoyed the food. The main dining rooms were great had a couple of meals there. Visited the Garden cafe most of the time.

Did the Greenwich excursion. We did not have much time left to explore. Wish the museum was included, not just to look through the gate to see where the timeline was.

Zeebrugge (Bruges), Belgium

4 out of 5
We did the Gibralta on our own, once we got there we walked to the place to take the tram to go up to the rock and back on the tram. Great view from the top and saw the monkeys that were running around up there. They were quite interesting

Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands Did not visit port

The ship developed technical issues and we were told they would not be stopping there but will be going straight to Barcelona. Was very disappointed but nothing we could do.

Barcelona, Spain

4 out of 5
Did the hop on hop off bus tour. Was just able to do both lines offered, but was not enough time to keep stopping and getting back on, so it was like a driving tour of the city.
