great island to cruise

Favorite part of the cruise was the stop in santorini, however, the tender took so long that we only had limited time left to explore the place. Santorini is a beatiful island and we ship could've stayed a little longer than scheduled considering how slow the tendering process was.

The food selections in the Windjammer need to be changed.  They serve the same food everyday!!!!  Crew are great, but the place look yucky.  I saw one Caucasian lady pick up the cookies with her hands even though the crew handed her the serving tong. 

Cabin / Stateroom
We got a bigger room than what we expected and we're happy with that. The drainage system stinks every time we open the toilet bowl even though it hasn't been used yet. The shower drain also stinks.

Do not buy the shore excursions from the cruise company, you will save A LOT if you just go out and explore on your own. Shore excursions bought from the cruise company is a rip off.
