Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food in the dining room was the best I encountered on 8 different cruises. The food and service on the Lido deck was not as good. The variety of food offered and the organization of food dispensation was less than optimal.

We did not take a tour to Olympia since I had been there 60 years ago. The town of Katakolon, however, was very nice.

We made a trip to the Acropolis. It was OK except for the masses of tourists. Our tour guide was not very helpful.
Don't Miss: Acropolis

Ephesus was after Istanbul the most impressive site. We had an excellent guide and were really impressed by the ruins of this old Roman city.
Don't Miss: Ephesus

This is an amazing city. We took the 2 DeLuxe tours on subsequent days. Our tour guides were exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here but were exhausted.
Don't Miss: Blue mosque, bazaar, Hagia Sophia
