Review summaryThe itinerary for stops was good, unfortunately to short of time in each port. Messina shuts down in the afternoon when we arrived so unless you booked a shore excursion you basically had nothing to do or see. Each port was about 4 hours which didn't allow for much other than a quick excursion. Mykona's is beautiful and coming into port at 6:00pm at least the shops were open and the people there were very friendly. The service on the ship was good, food was not exceptional but definitely a good variety/quality. Something new for us on a cruise ship if you ate in the dining room for breakfast, lunch or dinner they did not have water at the table. If you wanted water you had to buy a bottle which had about 3 glasses of water in it for 5 Euro. They did have a good variety of excursion and I would definitely recommend taking them in Athens, Messina, Santorini and Izmir mainly due to where you dock and time in port. The excursions we took were good. I want to go back on a cruise in Europe but will pick a different cruise line next time to compare. The weather was great, a little warm some days when hiking around so you needed to be prepared with some water and comfortable clothes were a must.
