Review summary

This was our 25th anniversary cruise that had been postponed from 2020. We have always wanted to go to Greece and letting Norwegian be tour "tour guide" was our best decision. The islands visited were all great and the experiences we have will never be forgotten. Thanks!

We got there early and the process went very smoothly, including the Covid testing. Staff was friendly and professional

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We had two experiences at the specialty dining and both were great! The Brazilian restaurant was fabulous, as was the Japanese restaurant. (forgot their names) Buffet was about the same as always., but did appreciate the staff's efforts to wash hands and keep safe.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
I really enjoy the sports activities on board (tennis, basketball, table tennis, etc); and unfortunately these were almost non-existent. Probably because of Covid I assume. We were pretty busy during the day though so it didn't have a use impact on our experience. The fitness center was NICE!


4 out of 5
We really enjoyed the musical entertainment. Singers and dancers were especially good, as was the couple who did the acrobatics! The illusionist show was pretty lame....The "Elements" show with everyone was GREAT!

Children's Programs

No Kids. Actually, we didn't see any kids, which made the trip especially relaxing.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff who serviced our room were exceptional! Friendly and prompt and thorough. Waiters and wait staff did a great job as well. Bar tenders knew how to make some great drinks!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was very clean. Never saw anything out of place. Found our way around the ship fairly easily.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This was the largest cabin we've had on any cruise. We normally go "basic", since we spend so little time there, but this time we got a cabin with a balcony. And it was great! Loved to be able to see the islands as we sailed in and out of harbor from the comfort of our room.

Ship tip

Get onboard as soon as possible and enjoy walking around the ship before you set sail the first day.

Every day went smoothly. Even the "tender" ports. This may have something to do with the ship being not at full capacity.
