Second experience with a meditteranean cruise, and with Princess a much nicer one:

Soft embarkation, and the best disembarkation I ever experienced! A nice ship, with nice service, few noise, few announcments and so comfort despite number of passengers. Quite impossible to imagine beeing on a mega-ship (despite od course number of proposals ans activities). In fact all the advantages of a mega-ship without the inconveniences, and all of the pleasures of a smedium sized ship (like Pacific Princess) with the offers of a mega. I do not know how Princess gain this result? But wonderful! And "Movies unders the stars" is far awy from a gadget, it 's a very plus.

I appreciate too the advices of the port lecturer as I have been abble to sightsee individually, as I prefer generally.Of all my cruises it's the first time I got such nice and pertinent advices.

Port Reviews


No need to take any excusrion ,or private boat transfers! The automatic train called "people mover" is juste a few minutes from cruise terminal and conduct you right downtown for Eur 1!


Easy acces to downtown by cab or public bus (or shuttle _provided by Princess)

Katakolon (Olympia)

easy walking distance from pretty lsmall mediterranean port.If interted by Olympia, just ten minutes from the staion and then a mn train ride very comfortable and for Eur 10 return trip

Athens (Piraeus)

Walking:20 minutes from the underground station to Athen's center2 minutes from express bus to Airport25 minutes from inter islands ferriesBy cab, mn to each. Avoid cabs to downtown due to traffic
