Review summary

Overall it was a very pleasant cruise. The onboard activities were good, the only negative is they closed the hot tub early. They keep up with the timeline and most of the shore excursions had ample time to sight see. I think more island info could have been available and offer more excursions. On two islands we visited the excursion were not available. (FYI I also feel the excursions were overpriced). Room service was good, except for the laundry service took 4 days to get back.. The food, as on most cruises was good. Nice Cruise overall.

Take a bus at the end of town and see the island and beaches. Cold water if you go is springtime.

Santorini, Greece

Long lines to catch the Gondola down. Catch a Donkey for 5 Euro, if you walk watch your step

Argostoli, Kefalonia, Greece

5 out of 5
You need more time there. We rented a 4-wheeler and went to the beaches and caves

Dubrovnik, Croatia

If your going to walk the wall you need to walk fast if you want to catch the Gondola or stop off and have a snack.. (oh don't get snacks on the wall it super expensive.)

Venice, Italy
