Fabulous Ship and Cruise
Destination: Europe - Black Sea
The ports of call were especially lovely: France; La Specia/Cinque a Terra, Obla and Brindisi, Italy; The Greek Islands of Hydra, Mykonos, Rhodes and Lindos; Isanbul, Ephesus, and Meteora, Turkey; Kotor, Montenegro; Romania; Socchi, More Russia and the Ukraine. What an amazing trip. We opted to take off on our own and rented cars and motor scooters in most of the ports and saw even more on our own than if we would have taken the ship's shore excursions, and much less expensive. If you're adventurous, I'd recommend spending some time on line investigating the different ports and then exploring on your own.
In Kotor, do not pass up walking the 1600+ steps to the old fort - it's definitely worth the effort. Take the train in La Specia to Cinque a Terra and just stroll the small towns - beautiful. The only place that you might want to take a tour or hire a guide would be Ephesus, since there's so much history that unless you have a book or guide, you may miss a lot.
I just can't say enough or recommend this trip highly enough - it was truly a cruise of a lifetime. Less
We were upgraded from an inside room to an exterior, ocean view room which was wonderful. Lots of room with a walk in closet! We had a room with a bathtub, which made the bathroom very roomy as well. Loved the room, the view, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Also, lots of TV stations in english!
Good Value Cruise
A Trip of a Lifetime!
