Food and Dining
I like the freestyle because we ate when we wanted and what we wanted. The all day buffet was very good especially breakfast.
Cabin / Stateroom
The balcony suite is well worht the extra money!!
Service and Staff
Corfu, Greece
We took a private taxi and went everywhere. It was cheaper than the ship tour and a lot better!
Santorini, Greece
Total island is awesome - share a taxi and see.
Don't Miss: Ioa - take taxi around island
Istanbul, Turkey
Unbelievable city! We took taxis everywhere and everything was awesome.
Don't Miss: Grand Bazaar, Egyption Bazaar, Dolomhere Palace.
Iraklion (Heraklion), Crete
Nothing very soecial except Knossas - take taxi there - tours are a waste
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Izmir, Turkey
Took tour which was a mistake - Ephsases is very interesting but it was unbearably crowded. Next time I would get out early and take taxi and get there faster than tour. Tour wasted one hout at carper mill and rushed through site.
Mykonos, Greece
rented a car for about $50 with full insurance and drove. Much better way to see island
Don't Miss: beaches
Alexandria (Cairo), Egypt
We took a ship tour and we only had 30 minutes at both sets of pyramids and 1 hour at a papyrus store. Next day we shared taxi and went around Alexandria and it was great
Don't Miss: Library of Alexandria
