Going Cruising .. At 12.30 we arrived at the ship in Piraeus. We checked our bags in curbside and boarded straight away. There was a convenient hand luggage check-in, to avoid the need to drag bags everywhere, and lunch was being served in the buffet. So far so good !!
Cabins were ready by 2pm and we headed off to 7116 .. complete with Sunset Veranda where our view for 24 days was the wake .. and it was lovely.
Our next door neighbors were Sandy & George, who we had 'met' through the Cruise Critic boards prior to sailing. In fact there were 30+ members of CC on the ship at the get-together - a great way to start a cruise, knowing so many people !
Cabins were about the same size as normal [at least for us], storage could be better ..
Bathroom was a little small but functional ..
The Sunset Veranda  was about 3 x bigger than the standard veranda but unfortunately was a magnet for 'soot' whenever we were in port [we had a bath mat at our sliding door to stop the dirt tracking into the cabin] however it was still quite magnificent to go out and watch the wake ..
