The cruise was great, but the excursions were too short. Although we spent considerable time at each stop, we could have seen a bit more had the tours offered by NCL be more comprehensive. For example, our day in Mykonos included a morning tour (4 hours) without the option of an afternoon tour (extra 4 hours to spend in town). Had NCL combined tours, we would have been able to see or learn a lot more. The same can be said about our visit to Santorini. NCL crew members are always great, but the Art Show was not as pleasant as we had experienced on previous cruises (Art Staff, particularly the auctioneer) were too pushy and a bit condescending. Our first visit to the Blue Garden Cafe resulted in extended wait, only one person to serve all of us, and poorly prepared food. I would do it again, but NCL needs to look into these issues.
