Favorite part? Hard to say. The ship, service, ports and excursions were memorable. Particularly the ports. Venice, Athens, Corfu. Pompeii was SPECTACULAR. As was Athens.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was fine - bathroom was small - I always woke up stiff - bed? me? I was never sure.

Ship Tip

Things have surely changed since this trip - but the buffet and MDRs were top quality - no need to pay extra for the specialty restaurant(s).

If you have time - explore. It is worth it.

Explore the back roads (canals) - don't bother with "Harry's" unless you absolutely have to say "'been there."
