The ship was very clean and the staff were friendly and efficient. Only real complaint is that the pool water was freezing and you couldn't really swim in it. Also, there was no real kid play room.

Ports of call

Ancona, Italy

3 out of 5
The beach excursion was nice. The water was too rough to get in but it was a relaxing day. The beach is rocky so you have to wear shoes.

Mykonos, Greece

3 out of 5
The jeep tour was a waste of money. If you have to sit in the back, you could not see. Also, the sites they took us to were not very nice.

Santorini, Greece

3 out of 5
Santorini is a nice stop with all the traditional looking houses and churches. It was very hot.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

5 out of 5
This was by far the most beautiful stop. Our excursion spent too much time on traveling by boat when we could have gotten to the same stop via a bus. But the area was nice and I would go back there again.

Corfu, Greece

5 out of 5
We went to a nice sand covered beach with clear water. Had a great time with the family.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

3 out of 5
Lots of tourists were there which made it less enjoyable. Very hot. Otherwise, it was a nice stop.

Pros: food, customer service

Cons: not really kid friendly, pool water was way too cold to swim in, no play room for kids
