Can't go wrong with Royal Caribbean

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Ship remains in good shape and is the optimal size for good service and all the amenities you'd like to have on a week long cruise. The service was excellent and the food was pretty good. We didn't do any of the excursions and found most of the activities available as soon as we left the boat at port. Crete was the only stop that was less than what we expected.

Pros: Service was excellent

Cons: Traveling to Venice was a drag

Cabin / Stateroom
Nothing special in terms of the entertainment. The constant emphasis on appealing to international speaking folks got a bit old.

Service and Staff
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Just another big city like Rome. Definitely take a taxi...don't listen to the people who say to take the Athen's submay...total nightmare.
Don't Miss: Acropolis
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Great rug shopping and friendly people. Visit the Turkish Bathhouse tool.
Don't Miss: Turkish Bathhouse
Corfu, Greece
This stop was what you'd expect when looking at postcards of the Greek islands.
Don't Miss: island views
Iraklion (Heraklion), Crete
Nothing special here on this half day stop.
