Review Summary

This cruise is was a great vacation. The countries visited were beautiful and the service on board was excellent.  The ship was good, but lacked some of the comfort of more modern cruises. What I liked the most was the general friendly atmosphere and the free cruising approach.  Food was good, not great,  and it took too long in the dinning rooms. Overall, I will recommend it to others without any hesitation.

Ports Of Call

Piraeus (Athens), Greece Did not visit port

Go to plaka nice shopping area.

Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey Did not visit port

Best thing was the house of the Virgin Mary.

Istanbul, Turkey Did not visit port

Beautiful but crowded.

Mykonos, Greece Did not visit port

My favorite place. You do not need a tour, just walk around and take great pics.

Naples, Italy Did not visit port

I recommend either Capri or going to the Amalfi COAST. LOVED IT.

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy Did not visit port

Too much to see. I recommend taking a tour with Aldo tours, ask for S lavatory, he was awesome

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy Did not visit port

Again nothing to do if you do not take a tour. We went to Pisa and Florence with Aldo tours and Salvatore drove up to be our guide again. He was awesome.

Toulon, France Did not visit port

Not much to see in town. Others went in tours and there were mixed reviews.

Barcelona, Spain Did not visit port

Stay a couple of days to see Barcelona. The hop on hop off bus was great. You do not need an expensive tour.
