Loved the ports. Skipped pricey and crowded shore excursions for privately booked tours and independent travel. Able to beat crowds and no problem getting back in time. Favorite stops: - Athens (Michael's Amazing Tours: Fit in trip to Athen's major sites, a swim at a beach and visit to Poseidon temple); - Taki's Olympia tour (Olympics, Winery and Beach). Wonderful , friendly driver did a great job looking after my mom and helping us experience the wonders of the area. - Lefteris' daughter's wonderful tour through Crete with a stop for an amazing lunch in the country. - Prestige Rentals' whirlwind tour of Malta, especially the boat trip through the Blue Grotto. - Can't be Missed Tours (Small group) For Pompei, Sorrento and Amalfi Coast). Did a super job fitting in highlights with insightful commentary. We also spent time in Rome before trip (Rome Cabs provided super tours) and in Venice and Paris afterwards. Super service, especially in Windows restaurant. Varied menu would please different tastes. (Avoid Gardens restaurant, which is noisy.) Cabin was in good shape and kept clean throughout cruise. Traveling with my mom, who needed and received extra support as needed when getting on and off the ship. Pool area tended to be crowded with people willfully ignoring rules about not reserving pool chairs in advance. Even so, once you found a seat, it was a fun place to relax. Enjoyed hanging out in Champagne Charlies after tours and dinner, Great service and entertaining music shows.

Great ports, excellent service
