wonderfull trip....unfortunelly cut short.....But we were safe, please

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice
We took the itinerary starting from Venice,to Athens, to Ephesus, to Istambul, to Mykonos, to Naples etc...ending in Barcelona.

we were very pleased with the ship and the amenities, and the stuff was great very friendly and courtuous.-

We had an Inside cabin and it was good, the shower was bigger than usual. We were on the 8th.floor , Dolphin Deck.- Everything was running very well and we really were happy and excited of our cruise , it's our

fith cruise, 3 with Princess and two with other Ship.

We chose the free open hours for our dinner and we were allways sitting in `Concerto Dinning`` room , where

we had a great food , great time, allways the same table 221, with our very good and excellent service, from

our Waiter:Allan Basco; Junior waiter : Macma Mirabel; and also our Maitre De. Michail, we were really looking forward to see them every night...

The Captain Dino Sagani was great, gave us an update of what is going on More and you could hear in the Captain voice how sorry he was this happened. We will sail with him again....anytime. Less

We found the crew very courteous and allways ready to answer any questions, our room stewardess was pleasant and kept our room constantly refreshed and very clean.In the buffet area , where we took breakfast or lunch , the waiters were very nice and service was fast, they were very friendly and nice. room was a good size and bathroom was ok.

Port and Shore Excursions

I am Greek so, I know Athens, we had a great day at voulighmeni beach, took a taxi driver, very nice
and had a lovely day at the beach, weather was great...the water was blue and very clean....
The taxi charged 40.00 Euro, per couple, we were two couples but, he came on time to pick us up
and drive us back to the ship. That was great..

Blue Mosque

It was OK.. did not see much, it was over crowded, and it was a Friday, not a good day for a visit.

Bosphorus Cruise

The cruise on the Bosphore was an experience, formidable!! to be between two continents Europe /Asia.. it was really amazing..very good ; the food not so great, it was OK. (we had lunch on board)-

Hagia Sofia

The visit of the Church (what was lft of it..) was really great, but sad to see what became of it, but we did like the tour very much.

Spice Market

It was not so great. Too crowded, oomany people and not enough time...we had 20mn.

Topkapi Walking Tour

It was not so great. We did like like it but, too many things and not enough time to visit everything;
the Museum was great , theJewellery...oh God ,fabulous.

Basilica of St. John

We did enjoy the promenade and the view, it was good.

Carpet Weaving

we found the timing a bit long, because then we did not have enough time to shop and bargain in the Bazaar. Everything was expensive.


I personnally loved it as I am found of History, but my husband found it tiring, but we enjoyed the scenery and the history.

The visit was great and we enjoyed it very much, next time will choose to attend the Mass..

Oh I love this small Island, so beautifull....we had a lovely day and had lunch in a small restaurant across the sea, walking all across these small Streets..it was really great.
