Overall, we enjoyed this cruise and the ports of call. However, having 4 days of back to back ports in Greece and Turkey was very tiring due to all ot the rough, hilly terrain. The food was good, the service excellent and the staff very ... Read more

We picked this cruise because our 10 year old granddaughter could not choose among Spain, Italy, and Greece for her special trip. It seemed easiest to take her and her best friend on this cruise and see some of all of them. Celebrity had a ... Read more
