We wanted to see many of the main famous and historic Greece sights including Olympia, Corinth, Mycenae, Athens, Mykonos, Rhodes, and Santorini (Thira). We had almost perfect weather (the one day of rain was At-Sea). The food, services, and activities on the ship were excellent for us (60 years olds). And we went to the Amalfi Coast in Italy on the way back which was spectacular. The excursions were very good, particularly Olympia, Mycenae, and Rhodes. We enjoyed our time on the ship and off the ship. Our hotel in Rome, before the cruise, was in a nice area and the hotel was very nice. We enjoyed seeing Rome sights for two days before the cruise, plus we had nice dinners outside those two nights. We had excellent weather in Rome too. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. Seeing Rome and Athens historic sights was a highlight. We would go back in a minute.

Greece cruise including Rome and Amalfi Coast.
