Review summary

This is by far the best Cruise Ship I have been on. Never felt crowded. All the crew were great. The only negative aspect of the cruise was the lost time in Rhodes due to crew member jumping off ship.

Ship tip

Aft Cabins were very quiet but a long walk to the elevators. I would get a similar room though again.

Ports of call

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

5 out of 5
We stayed in Rome for 3 days prior and had a great time. Recommend doing this versus rushing. We were onboard by 11:30am day of departure.

Messina, Sicily

4 out of 5
Nothing much to do in Messina.

Valletta, Malta

4 out of 5
Need to take tours from port. Blue Grotto was scenic but too windy to go out by boat.

Mykonos, Greece

5 out of 5

Rhodes, Greece

2 out of 5
Because a crew member jumped off ship on route to Rhodes the boat did not dock as planned. Eventually docked at 8pm. Lost whole day.

Santorini, Greece

4 out of 5
Hot springs is not that hot and you need to swim 200 yards+ to get to it from boat. Long lines at cable cars.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

3 out of 5
Ancient sites and museum were great. The city not so much. You need to try the Greek Yogurt. Better than anything I have ever had in US.

Naples, Italy

4 out of 5
Pompeii was amazing. Naples not so much. Food was good though.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Bags were organized well but one did lose its tag and we needed to look. 5 Min tops
