Review summary

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.

Ship Quality

Decor was clean, but hawaiian decor for a european cruise seemed weird.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
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.

Ship tip

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

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
