Room Type: Suite

The cruise itinerary had two days of "At Sea," this was really nice as just having a couple of days to relax between ports and go no where was pleasant. We loved the Shore Excursions, but needed some down time to just relax as well.Big Smile  Cabin temperature controls were excellent, especially when it was 85F with 80% humidity outside.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was great, lots of storage space. Only minor issue was that there was a kids activity center on deck 12 right above. They made a lot of noise running around until at least 11 pm each night
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Don't forget that Croatia is a member of the EU, but has not adopted the Euro, you will need Kuna. Some places may take Euro or Dollars, but they are not supposed to. Public toilets are 5 Kuna.
Onboard Activities
Shows were good and only last 45 minutes. Usually do the shows each night at 7:45 and 9:45 pm
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Water, coffee and some basic juices are complimentary, everything else costs unless you have a drink package.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Acropolis will be very busy. Athens is not within walking distance of the port
Split, Croatia
Diocletian Palace is an easy walk from where the ship ties up.


When going to the buffet for breakfast, you can sit in the La Cuchina restaurant as well as the open table areas. Bottled water costs extra, even if you have the drink package. All the water stations have signs saying "do not fill water bottles here" but nothing about where you can fill them.
