Cruise needs to be brought into 21st century.

Sail Date: May 30, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The on-board activities were mainly inane--towel-folding lessons, fox-trot lessons (the fox-trot became passe 60 years ago).  Too much bus-riding on the off-ship excursions.  Why Argostoli?  Nothing but a third-rate cave and a so-so monastery.  Surely some other island would have been more interesting.  The solo guitarist for the last night dance party was really disappointing.

Ship Quality
Neither better nor worse than other cruises I've been on.
Food and Dining
Same as above.
Service and Staff
Friendly, competent, very helpful, patient
The evening shows seemed somehow repetitive. The piano-bar singer was terrific. Some, but not all, of the evening dance-parties were a lot of fun.
Onboard Activities
Most felt like activities at a resort hotel in the Pocanos in the 1950's.
Destinations and Excursions
Delos was Greece as I had dreamed it. Argostoli was boring. Montenegro was novel.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very like other cruise ships. An in-room coffee maker would have been appreciated.
Venice, Italy
A visit to the historica. museum next door to the Doge's palace.
Kotor, Montenegro
Beautiful scenery, but nothing particularly memorable.
Corfu, Greece
I don't remember anything bout it.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Nothing anywhere beats the acropolic!
Mykonos, Greece
Delos was ancient Greece as I had dreamed it. A highlight of the cruise!
Argostoli, Kefalonia, Greece
The nadir of the cruise. Why, for heaven's sake, did we go there?


Bring a good book.
