Review Summary

The crew was the best thing about this trip. I've never met such friendly, competent people. Also, the entertainment blew us away. It was over and above anything we expected to find on a boat. We also really loved the food. We thought the buffet had higher quality food than pretty much any other buffet we've eaten at. The food in the complimentary dining rooms was about on par with the buffet (though the wait staff was exceptional). Since we had children with us we ate mostly at the buffet. Our little kids loved the splash academy and we appreciated the fun activities they got to do there. Our older child got a bad first impression of the teen club, Entourage, and wouldn't go back. (He was scolded by a counselor because of an innocent misunderstanding). The ports of call were a great way to see places we didn't want to ride trains through (Greece and Turkey). The weather was on and off but overall for that time of year we felt lucky. Our family's first cruise was a success!

Onboard Activities

We wish the movies shown onboard had better thought out showing times (I.e. kid films were shown late at night)

bathroom bigger than expected. You always want more room on a cruise ship but this one had more storage than others we've been on.

Ship Tip

Walk on the 12/13th deck outside whenever the ship leaves a port and watch the sun set!
