Because this was my first cruise, I can not compare it with other cruise lines ... I can however compare it with the many vacations I've taken over the years. Wow ... this by far has been the best vacation.
The service was unparalleled. From the stateroom attendant to the wait staff we were catered at every opportunity. The check in process took a total of 5-7 minutes ... I kept thinking they missed something, but in fact they are incredibly organized. Booking the day tours in onboard was another 5-7 minutes to purchase and complete all four tours.
Upon arrival at our stateroom we were greeted with incredible views from our balcony. The size of the room was more than adequate as we booked (D1) Superior balcony room on the 9th deck. A balcony room is a must as you will see many islands as you cruise through the Greek Isles.
The food in both the main dinning room and windjammer were definitely worth writing home about. The kitchen staff did a wonderful job with selection and preparation of the many meals offered through the cruise.
The day tours offered will leave you wanting more. Each guide was well versed in the history, culture and facts of each visited city. A must do for all.
