Review summary

We love all the destinations, and Reflection is a wonderfully equipped boat with lots of activities that fit most people.  However, three of the destinations either were poorly planned (Santorini), or no much to explore (Crete/Souda, Bodrum) as a first timer.   Despite the less than ideal destinations the cruise itself was fabulous.


The worst experience came during disembarking in which directions were severely lacking:  people were just confused where to go, and which shuttle to take getting back to the train station.  There was also a pending strike in Rome where the disembarking process never mentioned.  This will cause people to miss their flight if not known.
