October 2015 - 9 Night Greek Isles (Rome Roundtrip) Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas
From stormy seas to Sunny islands!
Our cruise began with 2 days of stormy seas & medical emergencies but Cpt. Dimas and his crew sailed us through until we reached the sunny Greek islands. And despite several port closings & changes, all of the crew from the cabin porters to the bartenders to the talent rallied to make sure all guests were well attended to and entertained! The boat was always clean, the food & beverages never stopped, the Spa was very relaxing & the Entertainment was excellent!
Beware of the RC excursions - we booked several and each one ended with a 5 - 15 minute sales pitch from a local vendor. I was not happy to pay to be subjected to such sales tactics while on my vacation! However the excursion we booked thru USAirways in Rhodes was delightful and informative.
The most memorable day was when we arrived at Santorini due to another port closing - Such a beautiful island with so much to see & experience! Overall our first trip to Europe was wonderful!
