Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice
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.
As a frenchman, used to gastronomy (by education an culture) I can say too that cooking on board was a great More experience.
Furthermore what to say more than the only thinking of my 14years daughter upon end of the cruise was to cruise again with princess next year. Thanks to my fantastic travel agency whick recommended me this cruise, thanks to Princess Crusies team for everything! Less

Well suited . Abslutely perfect even in a low grade; Cabin service perfect

Port and Shore Excursions

20 minutes from the underground station to Athen's center
2 minutes from express bus to Airport
25 minutes from inter islands ferries
By cab, mn to each. Avoid cabs to downtown due to traffic

Achilleion Palace

a sure way to avoid difficulties to find the palace and overall crowds.

City Tour

a good introduction before going around alone!

St. Spyridon Church

a short view of ortodoxy!

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

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

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!
