Very good overview of the Greek isles visited, just not enough time at the stops to enjoy. Going back to Santorini! Paying for an excursion to visit Oia and only getting an hour there was not enough.

Absolutely loved the mix of Greece and Italy communities. The dinning service was fabulous. Would have liked to have had more "locally" appropriate meals. The cruise line serves what they believe  "American" guests prefer, I would have preferred more local fair, but our family got that in port each day. The trip to Santorini, Greece was shockingly poorly executed. Due to the number of cruise lines that port simultaneously there are too many people for the small port to manage. A fellow passenger broke their leg when being forced to walk down a hill to catch the boat due to so many passengers being in line to get down the hill otherwise. I strongly recommend some ground tour in Santorini otherwise you'll experience chaos.

The food was excellent and the nightly entertainment in the theatre was great!

 

The ship's decor was beautiful; the stateroom was up to date and clean.

 

The personnel/staff were all very friendly and efficient.

 

We loved this ship and the cruise itinerary.

Dining room food served cold.  Entertainment amateurish.  Weather was great.  Great way to cross Atlantic.  Great service.  Attrium pool is great asset to enjoy the sunshine without the wind.

Service overall was great, especially at dinning room and bars. Entertainment was boring for 13 nights, same bands and songs every night, Latin band needs better performers and sound equipment.  Royal Caribbean must improve/more creative dinner menu.

All in all the trip was good, the cruise was clean and nice. The food was very good but the service in the dining room was not the best although the staff personal were very friendly. At the buffet the food was good but a bit disorganized. The spa prices were high, the shops had very limited hours.

Do not rest as expected as the bed was as hard as a stone.

The forward elevators are much less crowded than the midship elevators.

Keep cellphones and iPads away from keycards. We had to have our cards replaced 4 times.

The Poolside Bar has the best staff. Victor and Rohan were amazing and they make a mean "Sex on the Ship". If you like red beers, ask for a Red Eye so they know what you're talking about. Also, the 5th floor allows you to walk outside the ship 360 degrees - it's awesome!!!
