I really loved this ship. There was always maintenance going on to keep it in tip-top shape; the food was excellent; the cabins were well laid out; the crew was awesome; the whole hand-sanitizer thing was really great.

Crowded - more shopping but beautiful, once again. Lots of places to eat and drink right on the water.

The Island itself was beautiful. Skip the winery tour - not worth the money. The cable car line was awful - a full hour from start to finish. But the scenery itself was breathtaking.
Don't Miss: Greek festival, from what I heard from those who went.

Loved the KRKA National Park excursion. It was such a lovely place. I'm not a shopper so I was really pleased at this outdoor activity.
Don't Miss: Only did KRKA and it was great.

Toured the "new" castle and had a few beers. Nice stop but nothing exciting.

Seemed like this was just a final shopping opportunity. Nothing much here to speak of.

Pros: KRKA National Park in Croatia

Cons: The crowds on Mykonos and Santorini
