Never could understand why we did not do this cruise before. The Greek island were beautiful, Santorni's white homes and blue roofs overlooking the deep blue sea. Mikonos, with their windmills and Athens - history, traffic and smog. One of the prettiest cities was Dubrovnik - the high walls that surrounded the city, great seafood and the oldest Pharmacy in the world. The Armonia was great, Italian waitstaff gave us some of the best service on the seven seas. This is a cruise I would do again.

Ship Quality
Ship was clean, easy to get around
Food and Dining
Some of the best meals we had, only problem ws they wanted to keep all us english speaking people together and at the early seating
Cabin / Stateroom
Execelant staff, room was airy and light
Service and Staff
get staff everyone of them deserve a shout out.
Did not do to much of this, was a little tired when we got back from the shore trips.
Children's Programs N/A
Onboard Activities
poolside was the best
Destinations and Excursions
All shore trips were the right lenght except for Athens, lost a lot of time in traffic. recommend skipping the shore trip and taking the train in to the city.
Venice, Italy
Loved walking around the city and taking the water bus or taxis when we went out. PS the food was great.
Bari, Italy
Nice city loved walking around the fort
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Santorini, Greece
Greatest sopt on the planet, love the views of the sea from high up, we had the best Greek salad, winery was a little disapointing
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Piraeus to Athens - take my advise and use the train to get into the city - lost a lot of time sitting in traffic.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Loved this city, we walked the wall, had lunch at a small seaside cafe
