12 Night Holy Land (Athens To Venice) Sail Date: May 20, 2009 Ship: Royal Princess (RETIRED) 558 Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Family (young children) Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was much smaller than most of the Princess ships; however, it made finding everything much easier. Because of the size, there were no mini-suites, only 1 pool, 1 laundry room, and a very small casino; as a result, it became very crowded at times which was not a pleasant environment. All in all, the ship was respectable.
The Pyramids and the Sphinx is worth the trip. However, security was very tight and was a little uncomfortable at times. Also, the merchants trying to sell you items were overpowering and was at times annoying. Lunch was delicious and quite relaxing.
Don't Miss: Pyramids, Sphinx, Egyptian Museum, and the wonderful lunch
Ancient Epheseus was amazing; although, very crowded. Too many tours going on a one time and everyone speaking louder than the other. Rug-making demonstration was very interesting.
