Fantastic vacation

Sail Date: July 05, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Ship, smallest ever stateroom on tenth floor next to elevators, great staff, washy, washy to keep healthy always used and available, fantastic food, great organized shore excursions. I'd rather been taken to Santorini Island so close than to Mykonos though. Just pictures show nicer looking houses. All great places to be seen, very active to go on all possible shore excursions. We had great weather, warmer every day as we went on. To see Venice from the ship was our second experience there. Leaving from Barcelona in the evening gave us the opportunity to still see the city in the morning. We flew from Tampa to London, non stop with British Airways, spend a few days there which was fantastic and assured me luggage would have less chance to be lost. Unforgetfull experience.

Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
The smallest ever, no couch. Husband had to unpack his suitcase, put it into the closet otherwise no room. As he was in the bathwroom, I'd get to the safe or closet, etc...
Barcelona, Spain
Hop on hop off
Toulon, France
St Tropez was great to visit
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Cinque Terre, Manorola, Vernazza, MOnterosso al Mare, fantasti to be
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Great to stay at the pool by yourself in a very cold and salty water. Had already been to Rome before.
Naples, Italy
Ice cream, visiting luxurious Capri was unexpected to me.
Mykonos, Greece
Cute white houses, beach, lunch included in shore excursion, good tour guides all the time.
Istanbul, Turkey
Great tour guide organization. Not that much impressed with the old city. Great to see Agha Sophia, The palace wealth and the MOsks besides learning some of this culture through the tour guide.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Ephesus and Terrace HOuses were impressive, better carpet show watching how to get the silk thread.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Better than expected. Well developed, clean, very congested traffic. Warmest weather of all, mainly listening at the Acropole to the 45 standing in the sun tour guide explanation having less free time to have lunch and no time left to peak into stores.
Venice, Italy
Fantastic transfer to airport by Norwegian, time wise, got an earlier flight. Loved it.


The restaurants always had room with no hurry to sit outside. Love having part of breakfast being served outside.
