The ship was great. THere was so much to do at al times. The staff was amazing. Everyone was helpful, considerate and enthusiastic. I really enjoyed the shows at night and the poolside dancing.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I loved the food. There was always variety and many options. We had a later dining time but I thought it worked out perfectly. Johnny Rockets was a nice option and the Cafe Promenade being open so late was nice. Room service being free or a minimal charge during late night hours was very helpful.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
They were great. If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have had the great time that we did. Our waiters Daniel and Atul were the best! They always knew what we wanted and if we weren't sure about that we wanted and ended up picking something, they'd bring us both things we said we were deciding between. If we needed anything special that wasn't on the menu they somehow worked it out. Our stateroom attendant Lionel was also great. He brought us things we asked for immediately and was really nice. The people at guest services were extremely helpful and enthusiastic. We loved them all.

We loved our stateroom attendant. The beds were extremely comfortable.

I felt like if you didn't sign up for an excursion (like we did) there wasn't much to do that didn't consist of spending a lot of money to get somewhere else.

The beach wasn't what we were expecting. We thought it was going to be a lot bigger and have shops around. Since we didn't go shopping in Athens, we thought we'd do our shopping at the beach but since we had to take the bus there and back and didn't have any time once we got back to the boat, we couldn't.

The Acropolis is awesome. I wish they provided transportation from the town after the offered to drop us off after the trip to the acropolis. We didn't want to stay and shop because were were nervous about taking a cab back and we felt like we missed out on a lot
Don't Miss: Acropolis
