Review summary

I loved every minute! I thought the destinations were fantastic. The staff onboard were all amazing and I loved the food. Only problem I found was the rudeness of some other passengers can be very annoying when you are used to everyone being well mannered.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Really enjoyed the food in the dining room and in the buffet. There wasn’t really anything I didn’t like.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We didn’t really take part in any shipboard activities so I can’t judge them! Everyone around us seemed to be enjoying what the team were doing.

Could do with some more variety in the shows but they were all ok!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All of the staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough for us.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Everything was spotless can’t fault anything.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
There was loads of room in this cabin, the bed was huge and really comfy. There is a walk in wardrobe with plenty of hangers and drawers and a sofa bed. It even has a bath. I loved the balcony.

Ship tip

Go with an open mind and don’t believe everything you read.

Ports of call

Split, Croatia

5 out of 5
Really not what I expected. The old town has so many winding streets to be explore. I loved it.

Santorini, Greece

5 out of 5
Lived up to all my expectations! So beautiful. Be sure to take a boat to Oia to see the classic views of the blue domed churches.

Argostoli, Kefalonia, Greece

5 out of 5
A beautiful place. Make sure you visit the fishing boats in the harbour to see the turtles that hang around there.

Venice, Italy

5 out of 5
Beautiful, just like a film set and so easy to get around.

Bari, Italy

3 out of 5
My least favourite port. Not really much to see and do unless you do an organised excursion.

Chania, Crete

4 out of 5
Quite far from the town so definitely need a bus to get there from the port. Use a local bus for just a few Euros rather than the ship organised one. Chania old town is lovely.


4 out of 5
Well organised and worked really well on the day!
