Review SummaryThe ship was phenomenal! I loved having a smaller ship where I never had to fight for a beach chair (even on the day at sea). Friendly, friendly people everywhere. The specialty restaurants were to die for. I'm pretty difficult to please and I had no complaints when it came to the boat. They were organized and getting on and off the boat was easy. Check-in was amazingly fast - maybe 10 minutes, no lines.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Blue Mosque (it's free), Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi palace can be run through in 30 minutes
Don't Miss: Paradise Beach and the windmills are neat up close
Don't Miss: Troy is all there is.
Don't Miss: Pompeii
Pros: The boat! The food was excellent. The beds were comfortable. The staff were friendly.
Cons: I would have skipped Chios and added an extra day in Istanbul. The Panoramic Istanbul tour wasted 2 hours of our time taking us across to Asia and didn't go into the Blue Mosque (which is free).
