The 12 day cruise was nice. We picked this trip because of the stops from Venice to Barcelona - although Izmir, Turkey was really not a necessary stop. The ship was old, and compared to other newer ships I have traveled in the past this one was pretty beaten up. Besides this, the food was OK, the service was excellent except at the sit down restaurants where the staff where at some times rude. We where a bit disappointed with the mis lead of the cruise itinerary, we believed we had 2 full days in Venice, Italy when in fact its only 1 day followed by 2 sea days, which where a bit boring due to the lack of activities towards our age group.

Overall I would recommend this trip to a friend but maybe on board another ship.

Venice, Italy
We only had 1 day in Venice - not 2 - this is mis leading.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Izmir, Turkey
Not much to see...
Istanbul, Turkey
Mykonos, Greece
Naples, Italy
The see it all tour - Pompei, Sorrento, Capri - Is too long! I would recommend to pick just one.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Toulon, France
Barcelona, Spain


Try and make reservations for the sit down complementary restaurants.
