Review summary

We were disappointed that our Greek Cruise was really not a Greek Cruise and the 2 main reasons for going--Mykonos and Santorini--were cancelled. We felt like there was a lack of transparency as to the reason for the cancellation on NCL's part. We were supposed to hit 5 ports and more than half were cancelled--Kotor; Myknos; and Santorini. But we made the most of what we did do and the staff was wonderful at every level. Our cabin was really lovely. I would say being up front and clear about what is going on would be helpful.
