Room Type: Oceanview

Had a wonderful time getting to know a lot about Greece and its Islands. Can recommend to anyone interested to see a lot in the Mediterranian in an pleasant way. Was specially impressed by the efficiency of the service staff to resolve a bad smell problem in the cabine by upgrading to a panoramic stateroom as soon as it became available and doing everthing to minimize the problem.
Food was excellent, be it in the restaurants or the buffet.
Guides, except one, on land tours (took them in spanish) restricted their action to comment what we saw with no or very little feedback on population, economy and other general topics of interest.
Did not like on board entertainement - very amateur and mainly to fill in unused time. Musicians were not to bad.

Pros: Service on board

Cons: Guides on land excursions
