Ship Quality
we had a cabin in the middle of the ship which made it very convenient for everything
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
really liked the location
Service and Staff
our waiter and his assistant were just the best
nice variety
Santorini, Greece
the volcanos are well worth seeing but the hike is rough. DON"T try to walk up to the top of Santorini, the steps are bad but the mules impossible.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Don't miss the museum and chapel plus St Peter's
Don't Miss: the museum
Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France
couldn't get off the ship so we missed the island
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Acropolis is well worth the walk
Don't Miss: acropolis
Salerno (Naples), Italy
the Herculaneum is awesome. The walk is easy and well worth the trip
Don't Miss: the new ruins
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Pisa was small but very interesting
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
the Roman ruins. The pressure to buy at the rug weaving school ruined the tour.
