A day (almost) in Santorini

We literally booked this mini cruise last minute. The price was just too good to ignore. After checking the prices for tickets and hotels, (our plan was to visit 2 to 3 isles ), taking this cruise was basically our solution for saving money. I would like to focus on our experience in Santorini island, a place that was the center of our interest from the start. Before booking the cruise, the plan ...

We were a large group on our golden jubilee reunion tour (all alumni of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, India - class of 1969) who after a 11 day tour of the Greek mainland decided to round it up with the 4 nights cruise of the Greek Islands and Ephesus. Knowing that the ship, although refurbished not too long ago, was old had made us a bit apprehensive. However, the moment we ...

3 couples travelling together, Friends who have never cruised before chose this cruise, asked us to join them. They were not impressed. Very disappointing. Embarking/Disembarking was a smooth efficient process, Everything else was a struggle. - We purchased a Gold refreshment package because we like our Wines. It turned out that all wines served were Greek wines, of very low quality ) ...

We booked this cruise as we wanted to see as much of the islands as possible in just a few days. This is exactly that happened and rather successfully, as now we wish, we had stayed longer. I' ll state first the negatives: long queues on first embarkation and on each disembarkation, which means much wasted time. The ship offer in the price just one excursion on Ephesus (but the guide was not very ...

We arrived in Athens 2 days before and explored the beautiful city.Awesome food and awesome people. Then comes the day of embarkation . Entire embarkation process was streamlined . Me and my husband were quite impressed by the staff and service. From embarkation team to restaurant team (food & ...

We choose this cruise because it was the only cruise that took place on Easter,and moove to Aegean sea. This was out 3rd cruise so we knew what to expect. The ship is old but only on papers,and i mean that it looks so fresh and well maintained that is was a big posotove surprise for us. The previous 2 cruises were on Costa cruise ships that they are very new.The main difference (and the ...

Our recent cruise aboard Celestyal Olympia was really amazing, from the first day we boarded did we feel like we where part of a family. They really go above and beyond to please you as a guest. The food was mostly Greek but amazingly great and tasty, we also ordered the grilld lobster in the main restaurant. Cruising with Celestyal Cruises brought us to two ports each day but that was not a ...

First of all, I want to tell you that, after booking our cruise, I have read some bad reviews about this cruise. People unhappy with ship , with food, etc. I went there expecting some bad experiences to happen. But, when I got there, everything changed. I CAN ASSURE YOU that the cabin was very clean, the food was excellent and the crew was very friendly! This is my second cruise, after MSC, ...

I am not an experienced cruiser and I am not a big fan of cruise ships so that may color my evaluation. However, I feel that this ship was adaquate for taking me and my wife to a number of Greek islands. The sea food was good. The deserts were good. The breakfasts were fine. My wife and I traveled independently and did belong to a tour group. The instructions and communications onboard were ...

We received this cruise as Christmas gift... my brother and me. We was afraid if the weather will be ok, because the previous week was too cold, but in Mediterranean was perfect... It was a luck that the ship embarked from Piraeus, was easy to access with airplane/taxi. Decent hotels was available very close to the port... a walk distance.. The cabin was decent, larger than ...
