We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise; the ship was great and crew were friendly, professional and helpful. There was something of interest (typically many things) at each port of call.  

Cabin / Stateroom
It was functional and comfortable.

Food and Dining
Barcelona, Spain
Many great places to explore and some delicious food on and off the beaten path.
Cannes, France
We just took the tender to shore, explored on our own and had a very nice meal.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Enjoyed some spectacular espresso and pastries in Livorno. The wine tour was ok.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
What's not to like? Great food, coffee, gelato, history, culture, etc. Rome and the Vatican are always great places to visit and explore. We will be back.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Enjoyed the historical sights, had a great meal in the "Plaka".
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
We were extremely impressed with Ephesus, we plan to visit Turkey again.
Santorini, Greece
Spectacular views, a truly beautiful island. Had a great meal in the village of Oia overlooking the ocean; toured the Santo winery which also offered nice wines, food and views. Definitively plan to return!
Salerno (Naples), Italy
Pompeii, Sorrento, the Amalfi coast, Capri, Napoli...unbeatable - same comments as for Civitavecchia, magnified.


The "My Time" option was worth it to us as we enjoyed the flexibility of dining at a time that was more convenient to us based on that day's activities.
