Traveled with children

This ship has been hailed as a true luxury ship; and in that regard, it is. The stateroom was spacious and comfortable, and pleasantly quiet. Service was reasonable, and we enjoyed our stay.

Travelling as a family of four (including 2 teen boys) we realized pretty quickly that this ship was probably not the best fit for us. The teen program was great, when it was running, but it had lots of down time. Our kids were not permitted into the indoor pool areas, which would have been fine except the inclement weather meant we didn't get pool time together.

The food was probably as good as one could expect for mass-produced food, but it never seemed quite

Port Reviews

Alexandria

Our tours were excellent, but the cities of Cairo and Alexandria are not pleasant places. We toured with Alex City Tours, and highly recommend them.

Istanbul

We loved this location, even though it was a substitute port for Ashdod and Haifa, which were cancelled at the last moment.

This was an easy place to sightsee without an excursion.

Kusadasi

Sightseeing on our own worked out just fine. We thoroughly enjoyed Ephesus and Kusadasi itself. Be sure to walk to bird island, right near the docks.

Athens (Piraeus)

Sightseeing on our own worked out fine, although a group tour might have been worth doing here.

Naples

We got stuck in pouring rain, and a train strike seriously hampered our plans. We had fun nevertheless, and enjoyed the most amazing pizza at Pizzeria Trianon.
