Thanks for the review. I'm really looking forward to the 9/21 sailing. Could you tell me about your tender experience in Santorini? That is the only one i'm concerned about. Since we are doing a private tour we won't get priority tender through the boat from what I can see. thanks!

Thank you for posting your review. We LOVE the Reflection.
Thanks for the review, sounds like a good time.
We took a tour of the active volcano's in Santorini and didn't have any issues with making it there on time. Our tour started at 8:45am and went until 12pm. We came back to the boat to change clothes and then went back out into town for lunch. The process of taking tenders isn't at all difficult. The boats can hold 30-40 people and they leave the cruise ship every 30 minutes. Coming back from Santorini is just how DiBeau describes it. The cable cars can only hold 36 people at a time so the que builds up when its time to get back to the ship. You can take a donkey down the hill but the smell is nothing to be desired. All in all you will be fine in Santorini. Just give yourself an hour to get back to the ship and 45 minutes to leave the ship and you wont have any problems.
It sounds like you had a marvelous cruise. I, too, wish that the pools were bigger. They get so crowded that it really isn't relaxing to use them. At least you had three choices. Thanks for posing your review. I enjoyed reading it.
