Review summary

This cruise was relaxing, interesting and at times exotic.  We started from Rome, went to Greece, Turkey, and back to Italy.  The tours in Greece focused on the ruins of Olympia and Athens.  In Turkey we went to Ephesus and Istanbul.  From Naples we toured Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. 

The ship was comfortable.  The food was ok - pretty crowded in the buffet, not a lot of choice in the full service restaurants.  Service was very good during this cruise.  Entertainment was excellent at times, at others it was not to our liking - that's why there's variety. The piano bar was where we spent most evenings, as the player took requests and had a very nice voice.  I would recommend this cruise.
