Sail Date: May 2016
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

First and foremost, we chose this cruise for the itinerary. The Ports of Call were ones we really wanted to see. Unfortunately, Istanbul and Ephesus were substituted with Dubrovnik and Kotor. This was no one's fault but a safety precautions because of recent events in Turkey.

Some thoughts (including answers to questions we had before the cruise):

1. Manage your expectations. Cruising has changed as has society in the last 20 years. People do not dress for dinner or anytime. Cruise meals in the dining room are not necessarily an occasion to dress up and go out for a nice meal. Few people dressed up. Blue jeans and T shirts were not uncommon in the dining rooms. This is a disappointment to some degree. Pack accordingly. I took a sport coat and dress shirts and ties. I would change that and take khakis and golf shirts.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Cabin BB

Our cabin was fine. Our attendant, Connie, was awesome. We had a couple of minor problems, each of which was fixed immediately. We blew a fuse trying to use our Hair Dryer. And we had a small leak from the shower. And, the ship gave us a bottle of wine for the inconvenience.
