Food and Dining

3 out of 5
same menu we'd had week before; specialty restaurants not all that special. Exception - Papa's Italian Kitchen... they treated us like VIPs


3 out of 5
Having a sea day between ports gave everyone time to unwind; heavy seas/weather limited on deck activities for 3 days... seasick passengers

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Front desk staff need work- rekeyed our card incorrectly, did not respond well to report of emergency situation, didn't get back to people with answers. Communication of sanitation issues was handled poorly.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Good clean ship; sanitation focus went overboard post-Egypt. Extra steps were not communicated well to passengers, though.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
penthouse suite. Best bed we've had at sea; extra perks like in room cappuccino machine

our favorite stop. Private tour meant we were ahead of the hordes of bus tours. Visited House of Virgin Mary, Ephesus (including Terrace Houses) and carpet factory
Don't Miss: Ephesus
3 out of 5
Another private tour -- overnight. Officials held all tours in Alexandria for 2.5 hours... delays our guide was able to overcome. We visited Memphis, Saqqara, Giza, Egyptian Museum and the Alexandria catacombs.
Don't Miss: Sound and light show at pyramids
5 out of 5
went to Ostia Antica since we had done Rome week before. Great ruins; amazing mosaics
Don't Miss: Rome tours
5 out of 5
Best port arrangement - shops and restaurants and access to town. We took the hop-on-hop-off bus to see entire island
Don't Miss: Mdina - for history and crafts

Pros: Historic sites

Cons: Post-Egypt treatment of passengers

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!
