Good cruise, but just too many kids and not enough adults only spaces

Sail Date: August 15, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The cruise itself was overall good, and the staff, cleanliness of the ship, food, and excursions were very good.  However, there were just too many kids and not enough space for adults to enjoy and relax.  It would have been better, if there was a larger pool for adults only and if kids were kept out of the bars/clubs at night.

Cabin / Stateroom
Great size and space for an inside cabin. It was away from the elevators and so, it was quiet and we were able to get a lot of sleep. The bathroom is also a good size for an inside cabin and was stocked well with towels, etc.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was slow, but disembarkation was quick.
Ship Quality
Decor was clean, but hawaiian decor for a european cruise seemed weird.
Destinations and Excursions
With the exception of Athens (where I felt we didn't have enough time), all the other destinations were very good.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Staff and service was very good on the ship.
Food and Dining
Food was also very good.
Venice, Italy
My overall favorite city on this trip. Quite charming.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Athens was ok. The Acropolis is very crowded, and I feel like we didn't have enough time in Athens on our excursion.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Excellent place and would definitely go back.
Split, Croatia


Don't go to the pool when all the kids are there. Wait, till later in the afternoon or early in the morning
