Review summary

I have already given my view of the various places we visited. My only other complaint is that there was no free Wi-Fi on the ship which, based on the cost of the trip, was a disgrace. The staff were all excellent and indeed the waiters, state room staff, the bar staff and the people serving in the 'Tea-Room' were incredibly friendly and happy despite the fact that they always to seemed to be on duty !!

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
I've rated it as a 2 because the room had a restricted view caused by the placement of a scruffy, dirty platform which was used to clean the windows of the room on level 7, 8 and 9. The platform was right outside our balcony which meant that sitting on our so called "Oceanview Balcony view" room was not an 'Oceanview' !!!

Mykonos, Greece

Not a lot to do

Santorini, Greece

5 out of 5
The views were wonderful. However we were lucky in that we were the only cruise ship in the town thus it was not too crowded.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

4 out of 5
Athens is full of graffiti and therefore is not a place for sightseeing. However the main attraction, the Acropolis, was well worth seeing

Naples, Italy

5 out of 5
Naples was a very interesting place to visit with lots of lovely buildings and sites to see

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
