It was a great trip!
perfect because I didn't have to worry about luggage every day. You unpack only once!
leaving from Venice was very nice! Very easy to access the port. Very easy process for boarding!
the fact that you have 2 days on sea was great, because you could use the rest after walking all day long.
the ports "cities" were fabulous!
Croatia - a dream ! You change money to their currency right outside the cruise, then walk few steps take their public transportation ( bus) and you are in the main city.
"santorini" spectacular views! If there are more than on cruise at the time, it could be a complete cluster to get to the island. You can only walk up the mountain, take a ride with a funky or take a cable cart.
you could wait 2 hours to come back down. Santorini is not made for that many people.
turkey " Ephesus"- a must see. We took a 4 hour tour pre-paid tour.
Olympia was a also very exciting.
the food was average. I don't believe they had a good variety of foods on the menu.
the shows were not good at all. I was very disappointed because I have taken at least 10 cruises and this is the first time that I did not like the shows at all.
The staff were very professional and very nice.
it is a cruise that I will recommend to everyone if you want to have a taste of these countries.
this is not a Caribbean cruise where you go to relax. If you want to visit the sights in every port of call, you have to be on top of your game!
