Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda 2B

I was very happy with the ship overall - its cleaniness and facilities were great, the syaff were happy and helpful but felt very let down by the quality, and choice of the food in the Oceanview Cafe (buffet).It was often cold and uninspiring and tasteless.and on a 13 day trip it got very boring. Food at the Silhouette Restaurant was also only OK and although the menu changed every day it was small portioned and average. We went on a P&O cruise earlier in the year and their Pantry ( buffet style) was far better. I was more than happy with my cabin but felt the staff cold be a lot more knowledgeable in regards to what was available at the ports of call if you chose to do your own thing and not take one of their expensive off shore excursions. I felt there could have been more guidance.

Port Reviews

Istanbul

This port was changed on itinerary from Instanbul to Athens

Kusadasi

Very clean and tidy with good shopping

Mykonos

Very pretty

Athens (Piraeus)

Been to Athens previously - due to changed we actually departed from Athens - dirty city

Dubrovnik

Beautiful city. The Old city is a must see. Very expensive. Second day got a panorama tour from local taxi driver which was excellent

Rome (Civitavecchia)

Did not get off boat in Rome due to terrible rain but previous visits have been goood

Florence (Livorno)

Got our own shared taxi into Florence and loved it - though very expensive and we also visited the leaning tower of Pisa

Nice

I love Nice but we actually docked at Villefranche and had to get a train to Nice. Many steps to train platform made this journey difficult and have to get tickets from opposite side of platform. Nice very nice though

Barcelona

Been to Barcelona many times and love this city. Use hop on hop off Bus

Touriste for best tour.
