May 2016 - 14 Night Mediterranean & Aegean Medley (Rome To Barcelona) Cruise on Royal Princess
Wonderful time, great tours/ports (except for Mykonos - see comments below). Glad to see Princess has finally improved upon the quality of their entertainment/shows. Great shopping on board ship. Thanks to Vicki our cabin steward on Caribe deck and Paul in Facets for all their assistance.
My only disappointment was the tour guide we had in Mykonos (George) - had absolutely no knowledge of the ruins (Knossos) and had to keep referring to a book to tell us about it. Also, he gave us the impression he was totally bored with the tour. He never counted to make sure we were all still part of the group and many people in fact left the tour. When asked if we could have a little shopping time in Mykonos, we were told no that we could shop in Athens. Also, the meal we received as part of the tour at the restaurant was disgusting....a hamburger (couldn't decipher the meat) and lump of rice with yogurt for dessert. Not at all what we were told the meal would consist of. I would suggest Princess find another restaurant as well as guide for this particular tour. We and others on the tour immediately reported our experience to the on-board tour desk upon arrival back to the ship.
