Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2012
Cabin: Junior Suite

We started this trip with a week off the boat in Tuscany (4 days) and 3 days in Venice (the embarkation port), so by the time cruise rolled around, we were ready to relax a bit.

We were in a Junior Suite that had seating and a nice private balcony. The room itself was clean and well appointed. The iPad was convenient for keeping track of our account.

We had late seating dining which seemed typical (in my limited experience). The food was good and varied. The wait staff were very attentive and personable. The cafe type restaurant (The Windjammer) wasn't real popular with my group. Luckily we found that the formal dining room was available for breakfast every day, so we took advantage of that. A lot more quiet and less of a feeding frenzy then the other spot.

Port Reviews

Venice

While not technically a port of call for this cruise as we got onboard here, we did spend 3-4 days prior to the cruise in Venice. Interesting place. While St. Marks and the square are worth a look, get away from the touristy area surrounding them. Lots of interesting places to discover here.

Katakolon (Olympia)

Tour of Olympia. We were awed by the sheer age of the sturctures and the history that we were able to recognize coming out of the region.
