Daily shore excursions were a plus. Tours offered were good very good with tour guides very knowlegeable and very informative, good value for price.Ship evening entertainment was very good.However there was a complete lack of information about the ports in relation to the cities visited,..unless you booked a tour you were completely blind about where to go, what to look for, etc.

cabin was good but towels were very worn and no wash cloths were provided.

Food aboard ship was very pedestrian versus other cruises we have taken. Everythting was extra cost,; coffee, soft drinks except at breakfast.Food quality was not what was expected.

....seems equivalent to Carnival low cost cruises, lacks a bit of class.


Cabin / Stateroom
spacious cabin
and bath area were excellent
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ease of boarding and disembarking was handled efficiently.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Destinations were very good with the exception of Kotor if you went to Olympia on your own,; no information on what was available or not available at the site, which was true for other stops too. Olimpia was barren not even a place to get water.Should have been advised.
Onboard Activities
shows were very good. Quality and variety was excellent
Children's Programs
not applicable traveling as couple.
excellent evening shows
Service and Staff
Overall it was so-so. Cabin attendant very good.
Dining room server was excellent.
Food and Dining
Service was excellent from server (Carlos). Food quality so-so, coffee served unless special order...budget issue? Charge me more for cruise, don't penny and nickel me to death.
Venice, Italy
Trieste, Italy
took tour guide was very good historical sights were very interesting
Split, Croatia
Took tour excellent guide and tour value.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
time on land was too short for a wonderful city.
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
barren long walks to sights, no amenities.
Corfu, Greece
Nice, abundant shopping, historical sights
Kotor, Montenegro
Nice, abundant shopping near ship docking area


Do your study about destination because cruise line does not provide much information.
