Review summary

We traveled with our 3 adult children who love history. This was a perfect cruise. We had time to explore and then come back to ship to relax. I wish we had another sea day but I have no idea what port I would want to leave out..

We played a lot of trivia and enjoyed that. There was an escape room for a little extra charge, $5 per person. It was well done and a lot of fun.

We had a balcony with connecting room to our kids room. They opened the balconies to connect to. It was like having a large suite

Crete

5 out of 5
We did the long tour to the Knossos Palace. It was well worth it. Drive there and back was not bad. After the palace we had a dinner show which we really were not expecting and it was great.

Salerno (Naples), Italy

5 out of 5
We did the Amalfi coast excursion. Beautiful scenery. Lots of time in Amalfi. Got back to ship by 1pm so we could enjoy it.
