Just returned from a 2 week cruise and stay holiday to the Aegean,

;cruise was good value,couldn't resist the delicious food so will have to go on a diet now! Enjoying sharing information with other cruisers in the dining room,but after a few days we were given a table for two and the very friendly waiters, Rolly and Dino, promised to save the table for us,which they did.We got on so well with them ;in fact all of the staff were happy and friendly and seemed to enjoy their work.

We booked 2 trips before we went,the first to Epheseus in Turkey and the other to Athens.I was glad we had booked as it saved queueing trying to get a place before it was full. We enjoyed Mykanos and it was easy to find your own way around,also Crete was easy to stroll around yourself.We did feel hassled in Turkey,which meant we didn't buy anything there at all,when the trip was over we strolled around the market area but the constant hassle to buy put us off so we returned to the ship and ate there instead,taking all our Turkish Lira back with us.

The evening entertainment was very good,Maurice Grumbleweed made a guest appearance which was a good laugh,and the resident team put on great shows.Overall a very enjoyable week's cruise which we would not hesitate to book again

Good value cruise, helped by great weather

Cabin Review

Cabin 306

nice size,plenty of storage space,decent shower.No movie channels on TV but we weren't in the cabin long enough to be bothered about that.We only had to ask once for ice and the ice bucket was re-filled every evening.Cute towel sculptures every day.
