Great first time trip to Greece and Turkey. Could spend a week or more in Istanbul alone. We did learn that weather in that part of the world can be unpredictable, just like back in the states. We had to skip one port in Greece due to high waves in the port. One nice thing about NCL was that any time a port was missed the captain had staff hand out free rum punches for about an hour. Nice little extra that other cruise lines could learn from.

Some are corny but they keep trying.

Wish they didn't repeat shows as often. Over 300 guests did a back to back like us and were treated to multiple performances of same shows.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
For folks that work 70 hours a week for up to nine straight months they manage to keep smiling.
We did a free walking tour that lasted over 2 1/2 hours and the guide was terrific. He gives tours on the weekends on his own and works just for tips. Check: AthensFreeWalkingTour.com website before booking through cruise line.
