Review summary

I absolutely recommend this cruise. It was a very busy itinerary, but we got to visit so many outstanding cities and sites. Just wish we had a bit more time in each port. Food was the very best on the cruise ship - superb!!! Ship was not crowded, Service was excellent. Word of advice - do not plan your return trip by air on the same morning that the cruise ship debarks - way too many people, long lines at airport, can easily miss your flight.

Loved our cabin and being close to Lido deck was a plus. Our friends had the two rooms next to ours, so we asked the room steward to open the balcony dividers. Result was one long balcony where we enjoyed wine and each others company.

Ship tip

Don't rush to dinner on the first night m- there will be a line. Go about 5-10 minutes late. Other nights were fine. Do not miss dining in the formal dining rooms at night as the food and service is top notch. We did self debarkation but had to wait for an elevator for about 20 minutes.
