Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The staff was very good about accomodating my family's dietary needs in preparation of our meals everyday. I only wish we had more vegan meals available to us on board. We were unable to eat at any of the specialty restaurants because they didn't have any options for us.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
I didnt really feel like we had a lot of things to do on the ship. For as long as we were on the ship I wish we had more to do in the evenings or a "at sea" day.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The entertainers were very good, the shows were great, I wish we had more.

Children's Programs

2 out of 5
My daughter didnt want toparticipate in the entourage club on board because it was a lot of hanging out instead of interactive events.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was as friendly and as helpful as anyone could have wished for.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was very clean everywhere we went. The ship has been updated but it still seemed pretty old.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
I thought the service charge per person, per stateroom was high. Our sheets were not changed everyday, which is fine, but the amount we are paying should deliver more or be less. And we paid for the first of arrival which seemed excessive.

Ship tip

Be prepared to spend a little bit of money a lot of times.

Ports of call

Santorini, Greece

5 out of 5
Beautiful stop and wonderful tour of the island.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

3 out of 5
The heatwave shut down tours to the parthenon, so that was disappointing.

Mykonos, Greece

4 out of 5
We loved the island and wished we could have been there longer or later since a lot of the happenings there happen at night.

Rhodes, Greece

5 out of 5
Good snorkeling.

Souda (Chania), Crete

2 out of 5
Visit was far too short with no opportunity to do anything.

Valletta, Malta

5 out of 5
The port was a little difficult to manage. You had to pay 1 euro per person to use the elevator to get up to the city.

Messina, Sicily

4 out of 5
Cabs from the port were very high.

Naples, Italy

3 out of 5
Not enough time to do all that is available in Naples.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

4 out of 5
Had to hustle to get to both Florence and Pisa and back to the ship in time.
