Pearls of the Aegean was spectacular!: Riviera Cruise Review by eyeu
Overall Member Rating
Pearls of the Aegean was spectacular!
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Food..was just amazing. You could choose from the very fancy to very simple. Eat as much as you like, or as little. Lots of choices. The specialty restaurants had impeccable service and superb cuisine.
The Bon Apetite Culinary center was a delight. My wife and I took a Mediterranean food course and found it to be well taught and a worthwhile part of the trip.
Ship...the top of the line! Interiors were decorated with More such taste and kept immaculate. Service was beyond helpful. Crew went out of their way to be of assistance.
Since we walked all day touring the ports, did not attend the shows. There was so much to see and do, just did not make it to the theater. This was a real walking cruise! Though there were no children, the cruisers all seem to get around well...whether they had black hair or silver. The majority were 50+ in years, but this was not a problem.
Cabins were fine. Information on bed in the evening was perfect explaining the next day's port.
Never the less, one must do studying on your own, since there is so much to see and do in each port.
In summary, this was an outstanding cruising experience. We have river cruised in Europe and cruised the Caribbean, and Alaska. This was tops in service, food, ports and ship . I would highly recommend this
cruise without reservations! Less
