Cruise was good, Greece is not at its best at the moment.

Sail Date: June 27, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

We really enjoyed the cruise and our Penthouse stateroom but the destination of Greece is probably not at its best at the current economic climate. Difficult to obtain euros when you are at port and everything was a bit tired. People were lovely but a little on the desperate side, understandably, for your patronage.


Food and Dining
Food started off really good and then seemed to drop in quality and variety as the cruise progressed.

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Disembarkation was really smooth but embarkation was chaos in Venice. We did not receive the VIP treatment that we were expecting from a penthouse cabin.
Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was fantastic. Minibar was locked the first day and took ages for someone to come unlock. Coffee machine needed descaling from the first day and never got fixed which meant the coffee did not taste very nice which was disappointing. Not thrilled with some of the extra "perks" you were suppose to get. The treats in late afternoon were often canapés with meat and we specifically told our butler that we didn't eat meat on the first day. We reminded him 3 times and when he said he'd get us something else, it didn't happen.
Venice, Italy
Corfu, Greece
Santorini, Greece
Don't do the Volcano hiking excursion. It is very disappointing and does not give you enough time to explore Santorini like we had hoped.
Mykonos, Greece
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece


Breakfast at the private restaurant for Penthouse and Haven cabins was really nice to have at breakfast and lunches. The only downside was that the menu never changed for the entire 7 days.
