Great selection of excursions and solo activities. It was disappointing to have the itinerary changed to remove the original embarkation country entirely. Greece is gorgeous but I think 5 of the 10 days in 1 country was too much. Would have liked to spend more time in certain cities. There was no figuring the schedule either as some stops we had to be back on board at 11pm while others left little time for anything other than the included tour as the boat left at 4pm. The ship was only a few months old so every area was luxurious and comfortable. The dining, even in the restaurants requiring reservations were not good at all. The atmosphere was fine but the food was bland or downright disgusting. The spa and its amenities were clean and comfortable. Was disappointed with port shopping and dining recommendations as they failed to mention which days the shop is closed and that the restaurant was by reservation only. 99% of the guests were retired couples. Maybe 5-10 kids, a dozen or so people under 40 and virtually 100% white. I was expecting and hoping for a bit more diversity.

The price was once-in-a-lifetime, the overall experience - not so much

Cabin Review

Cabin 4019
The room was very clean and comfortable (aside from the surprisingly cheap twin beds). Supplies were refreshed daily and turn down service provided like clock work
