The service in dining, the shows were awesome. If you don't mine a smaller ship and you don't need a lot of activities then this ship is perfect.  The ports were beautiful Kusadasi could've been changed people very pushy and aggressive, I was uncomfortable.

Cabin / Stateroom
My cabin seemed smaller and it would have been nicer to be on a higher deck as a platinum and gold member.

Venice, Italy
Buy 24 water taxi ticket for unlimited rides that 7.50 add's up. Must gondola ride , we did it near Realtors bridge not as busy as Piazza San Marco $80 a ride. Nice shopping near Realtors bridge, 10-15 min walk to Piazza San Marco from Realtors must see. Have comfortable supportive walking shoes. The cobblestone streets are uncomfortable otherwise and your feet may get wet. Plus the footing is uneven, transfer from water taxi or boats you don't want to slip.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Beautiful old and new town was really cool. They take Euros or whatever money you have only a cc for purchases over 10 or $20.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey Skip unless you have booked an excursion otherwise it's just alot of flea market like shop, alot.
Santorini, Greece
Comfortable shoes walking is uphill and down cobblestone streets on the side. Take cable car really cool.
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
