The trip of a lifetime

Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

I will start with the best part of this cruise and that is the itinerary.

Cannes- we did Nice. It. Was pretty and lively

Florence- we did a tour offered buy. The ship ,glad we did. As it allowed enough time in Pisa and Florence with time to have an amazing lunch on the bridge.

Rome- a private tour worth. Every penny

Athens a cab ride took us to Acropolis for 50$ perfect

Turkey- I had no idea the beauty of Kusadasi, beach, ruins, and a cab. Ride for 150 e

Santorini- car rental easy bneaches, lunch bliss

Capri- I am sorry I did not. Pack our. Swimsuits. Fantastic.

I can't says. Enough about the ship. Itself the ship is lovely, tons of cozy nooks, bars and comfy chairs to hang out and have a drink in

The staff like friends. All of them

The restaurants were lovely we had no bad meal. We enjoyed the second seating in main dining room, we also tried all specialty restaurants. Chops was the best, More Giovanni's was good, but short staffed the night. We went so a wee bit slow. Windjammer was fine for lunches, breakfast and even two nights. Casual dinner. Rita's cantina was a great surprise we loved the view and went 3. Times as ship left port.

The pools were clean, the activities abundant. Stateroom comfortable.

This vacation was a dream come true Less
