We had a great time on this cruise! We were really impressed with the quality of the food and with the service on-board (Royal Caribbean hires some great people). The ports we visited were really fun. We booked one tour through the cruise line at Ephesus and it was great. The ship had tons of activities available for people of all ages. I especially enjoyed the ice skating and my husband liked the rock climbing wall.

Pros: Great service and wide variety of activities available on the ship.

Cons: There was an extra charge for soft drinks, even though coffee, tea, and juices were free.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
We booked the cheapest cabin possible and it was really comfortable and well laid out.
Service and Staff
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
We booked an all-day tour of Ephesus, Miletus and Didyma through the cruise line. It was excellent! Our tour guide spoke great English and was extremely knowledgeable.
Don't Miss: Book a tour of Ephesus -- the tour guides in Turkey are awesome!
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
A rude, aggressive taxi driver almost ruined our experience here. Watch out -- they will try to rip you off if they can. We took a taxi to the train station (but could have walked, and did so on the way back). Then took the train/metro to the Acropolis. We toured around the ruins there (a great experience, though very crowded) then walked down to the Plaka area for shopping and lunch. Finally, we took the train/metro back to Piraeus and walked back to the ship from there.
Don't Miss: Acropolis
Messina, Sicily
Take the train to Toarmina. The hike up from the train station has some gorgeous views, or you can take a bus.
Don't Miss: Toarmina
