We choose this cruise for the amazing itinerary. The Greek Islands are so beautiful. Most of our tours were through RC and they were wonderful. The food, service and entertainment on the cruise was disappointing. The food had no taste to ... Read more

All destinations were perfect, all the cities were ''to discover'' and each had something different to provide. Embarkation was perfect but disembarkation needs improvement/clarification for early departure. Ship is great, rooms are ... Read more

We took this TA ( our 4th TA) because of the ports and cost. We had a balcony on Deck 8 which was spacious and more storage than we expected. Our CRuiseCritic roll call was very active and we participated in many events through the cruise, ... Read more

Great Transatlantic cruise, nice ports of call, beautiful refurbished ship. Food in main dining room sub-par, though, and disappointing. Super, good-sized room, very clean. Calm seas, and warm temperatures, especially for November, would ... Read more

The embarkation was terrible, the port was terrible. Too much walking and winds to get to the ship. Very unorganized. The ship was an older one, but still very nice. Going into rehab soon, then coming to America. The junior suite was ... Read more

We chose this cruise mostly for the departure and arrival ports, but were really pleased with the cruise itself. I had sailed on this same ship in the Caribbean years ago and was not all that impressed. Somehow, this captain and crew ... Read more

The ports were extremely diverse sailing to Sicily, Mykonos, Santorini, Kusadasi, Athens, and the Amalfi Coast. Sicily was a modern port that we chose not to take an excursion to the older town as it seemed to focus only on shopping. ... Read more
