Review summary

Great way to get a sense of the Greek Islands in case we decide to fly over and visit them on our own. Ship was great, crew was wonderful, an overall enjoyable trip. All that we wanted from a cruise.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Painless. We were listed as Priority due to the cabin that we selected so we were basically hand walked through the entire process.
