Loved the whole thing, it was meant to \be the trip of a lifetime but i will be back. Loved the line, and the staff were excellent. A great group of people cruising, I did not meet the man of my dreams but I had so much fun it did not matter. Loved the size of the ship, not too big. (Perhaps the man of my dreams may have been on a larger ship) however, our meal mates, other people we met on board, the fun games with the crew at 8 bells. My friend and I who took the cruise as a treat for our 60th birthday it was wonderful. Oh, perhaps one negative, the ladies in the pursers office (not pleasant) and the ladies in duty free were a bit above themselves. I did not mean to complain at all but they were the only problems and of course, it was not across the board. our waiting crew and cabin crew were the best.

We should have gone to Athens, the port was not impressive and the market terrible, Did find an internet cafe at 1 euro for 30 mins. Much better than on board which was 12 euro for 30 mins with lots of cut outs. I should have complatined about that earlier
Don't Miss: Internet, great to contact home

Etna, we could not go right up because of the unespected snow but what we saw was great, apart from that, we were given the option of a different bus tour or opting out which no one did
Don't Miss: The stories about the eruptons
