10 Night Greco-Roman Revelations (Barcelona To Athens)
Sail Date: April 17, 2007
Ship: Regatta
Cabin Type: Balcony

Relaxed atmosphere with older clientele (avg age was 65). Quiet and low keyed. No screaming kids or screaming cruise director.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Nice variety and good quality. Most meals were great though a few were sub-par, such as T-Bone steak. Must wait on line at beginning of cruise for specialty restaurant reservations. Open seatring was very convenient.

Entertainment was second rate. Singers out of tune. String quartet playing twice each evening was wonderful.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Wide variety. Food staff were excellent, especially Maitre D's and managers. Spa staff were pleasant but not warm and friendly.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Easy to find everything with smaller ship. Very clean, though broken lounge chair not fixed for 4 days.

Cabin / Stateroom

Palace of Knossos was historical but mostly ruins. Visit to typical village was charming.

Didn't go on excursion. Town was old, run-down with liots of construction. Cafe was friendly and quaint.

Florence was beautiful but tour didn't give opportunity to spend enough time.
Don't Miss: Duomo

Detailed and thorough tour of Vatican was terrific. BUs tour of other Roman sites was comforatble but only saw sites as bus passed by.
Don't Miss: Vatican

Pros: Dining flexibility and upscale, casual atmosphere of ship. Wonderful variety of ports

Cons: Inconsistent service/attitude of ship's staff. Difficulty understanding heavy accents of tourguides.
