The Pullmantur ships offer all the trappings of a traditional cruise — with a Spanish accent. This means two-seating dining: early seating dinner is at 8 p.m. and late seating at 10:15 p.m. (one example of the Spanish preference for evening meals), production shows, a spa and gym, casino, shops, youth programs and pretty much everything else you’d expect of a typical mass-market cruise experience.Needless to say, the main onboard language is Spanish/English.
