Review summary

This was out first big ship cruise, having only done a river cruise in the past. The river cruise was awesome, but this cruise was, too. I did not expect my husband to care for the experience and he loved it! We took over 2,000 pictures during the cruise, cannot wait for the prints to arrive next week.

It was a quick embarkation as the lines moved quickly.

The cabin was perfect for us and we loved its location especially with the angled balcony.

Ports of call

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy Did not visit port

We spent our day before embarkation in Rome.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

5 out of 5
We toured what we wanted to see and then a taxi driver asked us if we wanted a tour and so we got to see outside the city, too.

Corfu, Greece

5 out of 5
The beach was great. Wish it was an option at every port.

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

3 out of 5
The dancing was a bit boring as it went on too long. The food provided was awful.

Santorini, Greece

5 out of 5
What we viewed was very cool.

Mykonos, Greece

4 out of 5
Too long a time spent on Delos.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

5 out of 5
This was everything we hoped for in an excurison in Athens.

Naples, Italy

3 out of 5
The cost of going to Pompeii should include tickets into Pompeii.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

2 out of 5
Our preferred excursion to Florence was cancelled without notification so we were stuck with just going to Pisa instead of an affordable tour of the beautiful city of Florence.


5 out of 5
We self-assisted our departure, so it was fine.
