This was the BEST cruise itinerary we've ever taken!  We had a fabulous time!!!  There is so much history to see in Europe, we were pleasantly overwhelmed!  The 12 day Grand Mediterrean cruise is the PERFECT itinerary to see so much.  There were many excursions to choose from and we were happy with every one we went on.

The cruise staff were so pleasant and helpful.  We are very thankful for all of the hard work they put in to make the passengers as comfortable as possible and wanting for more!

We've been on many cruises in the past and we thought that this particular cruise was a little on the quiet side compared to the others that we've been on.  That's certainly not a bad thing, however we weren't sure why.  I guess we are used to having music blaring and more upbeat vibe.  We figured it might of been the cruise itinerary.

We highly recommend this spit and cruise itinerary!Love

Cabin / Stateroom
It was our first time we booked a balcony. I have to say, that we're not going back to inside cabin in anymore! It was so great to be able to step out to the balcony to get fresh air and especially when we were approaching and leaving the ports.

Food and Dining
Overall, the food was great, however the one thing I always look forward to on a cruise is having Escargot in the dining room. We were disappointed that they only serve the dish in the specialty restaurant. When we tried to make reservations just for the dish, it was always booked during the time we wanted to go.
Venice, Italy
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
We took the excursion that took us to the Poseidon Temple. The location was so beautiful! Our excursion also included lunch, which was OMG good!!!
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Istanbul, Turkey
Mykonos, Greece
Naples, Italy
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
We took the Pisa & Taste of Tuscany excursion. This was such a great one, we can't stop talking about the meal we had at a winery that was included in the excursion! We highly recommend this one!
Toulon, France
Barcelona, Spain
We ended up staying three additional nights in Barcelona before we headed home. We took our last excursion here and we highly recommend this one too! We took the Spectacular Montserrat.


Our cabin was located on deck 11, mid ship (closer to the back). This was so convenient because the buffet was just one floor up! =)

We were also on the Port side of the ship so we were able to see the port when we docked. Not sure if that's why it's called the port side, but it worked! Loved i
