Review summary

The Reflection is a lovely ship with a terrific staff from the Captain down. They are very organized from our dining experiences to the tender system and port transfers.

We chose this itinerary because it went to the three Greek islands that I have wanted to visit the most and I was not disappointed. They are all quite different but can be crowded which we expected.

We enjoyed the other ports very much but Ephesus in Kusadasi,Turkey is not to be missed, just as spectacular as the Parthenon (Acropolis) in Athens.

Ship tip

This is a lovely ship with many areas to sit for the sun or for hiding away to read. The Crush Martini Bar is not to be missed in the evening. Apart from great drinks the bartenders put on a fun little show to amuse the cruisers.

Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey

5 out of 5
Ephesus is not to be missed, we had the opportunity to see how the Turkish rugs are made very interesting.

Rhodes, Greece

5 out of 5
The town is steeped in medieval history with lots to do & see. Lindos was a great side trip but you must be fit as it is quite a strenuous walk & climb

Santorini, Greece

5 out of 5
Beautiful just like the pictures, but extremely crowded. We walked the back streets, the views are fantastic.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

3 out of 5
Athens not what I expected however the Parthenon, Acropolis and the views from there are worth the trip.

Naples, Italy

5 out of 5
Second time around, just walked about.
