Review summary

The ship - Reflection - was, as expected, top quality for this range of cruising. From easy boarding at Civitevechia to disembarking at each stop, everything went smoothly.

The on board facilities were excellent and the choice of food was superb.

The highlight for me was the trip, in Turkey, to  Ephesus  where the excavations and detailed finds were mindblowing.

Clean and well serviced.

Ship tip

Find the afterdeck behind the buffet restaurant early in the cruise as this is an excellent venue - with plenty of seating - to take breakfast in port.

When you land on the quayside, walk 50m to the left and buy a ticket for a boat that takes you on a 30 min cruise to Oia quay where an included bus takes you up to the town. After 3 hours the bus takes you all back to the cable cars to get back to the ship's tender.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

Find the fish market and enjoy a dirt cheap meze lunch with ouzo for 5 euros for 2 in the little cafe that appears in guidebooks and sits between fish stalls!

Mykonos, Greece

Far nicer than we had expected. Clearly an island developing its facilities for the higher end of the vacation market.

Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey

Bodrum, Turkey

Don't believe the market traders!!! Everybody knows the brand labels are fake but I didn't realise even the size labels are questionable!!

Souda (Chania), Crete
