Ship Quality

The hot tubs had some issues. We saw some places that had a little bit of rust. The layout was great.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
My only complaint is that being down on the 5th floor, every time we got to shore, we heard all of the anchors, chains and connecting the stair/ladders. It woke me up at least 3 mornings.

Ship tip

I feel that some of the services were rather expensive. Be prepared for extra charges.

Ports of call

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

4 out of 5
I would have like to tour the area around Civitavecchia. I looked very pretty. That opportunity did not become available

Santorini, Greece

4 out of 5
There were 5 ships in port the day we were there. It was difficult to see anything. It appeared very beautiful but most sites were so busy that you just didn't get the opportunity to see it.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

3 out of 5
The town was kind of run down. We took an excursion to the Posiden temple, but we didn't see anything else. It was a rather long trip tp see one small ruin.

Mykonos, Greece

4 out of 5
We did not take an excursion here. We walked around the city and walked to the run down wind mills.

Rhodes, Greece

4 out of 5
We took a hop on hop off bus, which they only left you get off on one spot. That was at the shopping area. The places they took us were nice, but it would have been nice to get off the bus to get pictures, but that wasn't possible

Chania, Crete Did not visit port

there wasn't anything there we were interested in seeing

Valletta, Malta

5 out of 5
This was the most beautiful place we visited. Unfortunately we were there on Sunday and a lot of places were closed. We were able to go on the hill where there was shopping available.

Messina, Sicily

5 out of 5
Ver y nice area. We took a highlights of Sicily excursion, This was a beautiful island.

Naples, Italy

5 out of 5
We went to Lucca and then Pompeii. Amazing, I wish some of other excursions were as good as this one. Both places were amazing.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

5 out of 5
We went to Pisa. I was amazed by the beauty of all of the buildings. The street vendors were a pain, but I know you cant do anything about them.
