A five star ship with a five star itinerary
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Our room was a delight, much nicer than we had hoped, with plenty of storage space for our clothes. The room steward kept it spotless several times a day and always left us a full ice bucket after I had requested some ice on the first day.
The ports of call were the icing on the cake. They were an armchair traveler's dream. Rome, Naples, Sicily, Crete, Athens, Rhodes, Santorini, Venice. What's not to love. We booked several private tours and did a couple of ship excursions. We found that although the ship's excursions were convenient and passable we enjoyed the private tours even more. The secret to the private tours is to find several other people to share them with to cut the cost down. If traveling with a group, no problem. Otherwise a site like Cruise Critic puts you in touch well before the cruise and you can make arrangements with others. The largest private group we had was 7 and the smallest was 4. Obviously you can avoid the "cattle car" tour bus this way and will get to see much more in the same time frame.
In summary: We LOVED this trip and will be actively looking for another one with this cruise line. Less
