Inexperienced to cruising we were unsure of what to expect,the embarkation was a little congested and seemed long winded,not sure if this is normal elsewhere? The ship is lovely,little bit glitzy but very modern and well equipped,the cabin was spacious and well furnished and the service we received from Mervin was fantastic,towel sculptures and even a birthday card. We called at Bari,Katakolon,Santorini,Rhodes and Dubrovnik all the ports were very picturesque and were easy to reach so no need for expensive on boat tours. Onboard the English speaking hostess Darling Debbie was a great laugh,very informative and not pushy over selling the tours,she would often sit with us and chat in a bar. We found the food to be great,we opted for the early sitting as 21.00 is to late for us,the problem with the early sitting is we missed the sail aways and sunsets. We met some wonderfull people from all over the world and hope to keep in touch. Bar staff and waiting staff worked tirelessly to keep your drinks flowing,in particular Christine from Brazil in the piano bar was superb,always smiling. We recommend the all inclusive package as it takes all the apprehension about a final bar bill away,plus you get to try different beverages,thanks to Chris and Nuthen we are now fans of prosecco and bellini,s All in all a fantastic trip,a few little niggles to start but as the week went on you get into the swing. The sun shone and the sea was very very calm,what else can you ask for????

Port and Shore Excursions

Same as Rhodes,gorgeous harbour and city,not easy walking though,but well worth a visit.
Beautifull port easy walking,great views,try a gyros and a beer and chill out.
