We had a wonderful cruise with calm sailing in the Mediterranean. Service was excellent - everybody was helpful and friendly. Wide variety in the free dining areas and not long queues. Free drinks could have been more varied - not just iced tea. Ports of call and excursions were very good - maybe could leave out Egypt, as the travelling time to Cairo was so long and Egypt was disgustingly dirty and a health hazard! Could have had theme music for the different ports of call or theme dinners eg Greek food and music in Greece. Enterntainment fair, but sometimes very loud. Crew show excellent! All in all had a very special holiday for our 40th wedding anniversary. They went out of their way to make us feel very special. Can recommend this ship and ports of call (Istanbul and Greek Islands)
