The cruise itinerary was phenomenal.  The ship itself was very well maintained, clean, etc.  The food was so-so.  This is our first time with free-style and it will be our last.  The food in the restaurants was much better but I don't think we should have to pay for it.  Charges have a way of adding up quickly.  The main dining room only rotated one thing on the menu, so  it as kind of boring.  The excursion prices seemed expensive and we were shocked that we had to pay 22% tax in the shops. 

The evening shows were very good as were the parties in the Spinnaker club.  Staff was very friendly.  Joan, our washy, washy, happy, happy girl, was fantastic.  We didn't see much of our cabin steward.

Ship Tip

Go to the Blue Lagoon for late night snacks. If you don't like smoke, stay clear of the casino - the smoke went into the lounge next door often. Be prepared for the QUEST!

We rented an apartment after the cruise - great way to see the city!

The jeep excursion is overpriced for what you get. Better off to go into town on your own.

Make sure you go to Oia. It is fantastic. Ride the donkeys up to Santorini and take the cable car back down.

Great shopping; go see the windmills!

Get a bus to Olympia on shore - way less than on the ship and many, many vendors.
