Cruise around the Greek Islands.

Sail Date: April 2014
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice
Like previous reviews ship very beautiful but caters for too many passengers.

Transfer to the ship from the airport took 2 hours (booked with Liverpool Cruise Club).

Embarkation port just like a cattle market.

Cabin very spacious and clean - balcony fine.

A big money making machine - constantly trying to get you to buy their allegrisimo drinks package (140 euros per person for the week) includes drinks/water/coffee/pop. No movie station on the TV (all in Italian I think) - want to charge you 7 euros to watch a film. Something like 14 euros to use their wireless connection for kindles/computers.

Food - in the 24 hour Zanaibar restraunt - always luke warm. :Poor choice of dishes - pizza station wonderful. Beware at peaktimes i.e. when getting ready to board the ship for an excurion so busy that you get swept away with the crowds. Trying to find a table - very difficult.

Main dining room - took 2 hours to have a meal which was poor More quality

Quite boring on an evening. Shows very good but then nothing else to do but walk around - look in the same shops - have a drink. Spent time in the casino watching people playing black jack.

THEY DO NOT SELL DUTY FREE ALCHOHOL OR TOBACCO ON THIS SHIP though on their advertising blub they do.

There is no promenade deck on this ship so you can't complete a full circuit of the ship (there are also no sunloungers/chairs on this deck as restriction is blurred by the lifeboats and tender boats).

Ports of call - fantastic Athens/Olympia/Corfu/Santorini (fantastic)/Dubrovnik!!!

Don't plan to use this line again (it wouldn't be high up on my list of choices). Less
