We had being on a similar type cruise in Croatia 2 years ago and when I say similar i mean only the head count was similar, everything else was quite the opposite needless to say.

Firstly when we googled this cruise , to say the pictures were air brushed is an understatement . When we arrived at the port , we thought we were at the wrong boat as did other passengers as we found out as the days on board passed by. The size of our room was 7ft x 7ft square with twin beds pushed together . There was a foot either side of the bed and at the end of it and our toilet leaked from day one, of which we reported but nothing was done about it. The air conditioning unit roared like a generator all night long of which was reported also. Nothing was done on either report.

We only swam off the back of the boat once and that was on the first day as it was either too windy or we were in a port and could not swim in it. We missed one of our shore excursions or rather port of stop due to being unable to dock??. We spent one afternoon and one night in another port because we were told seas were too rough to move on.We eventually ended up at our final destination Mykonos and were told we could stay out until 3am but would be leaving again at 5am to head back to Athens , note no one on board had any interest in staying out until 3am. We left Mykonos at 5.30am on thursday am and finally docked in Athens at 9.30pm , everyone was sick on board due to the rough seas .This day was completely wasted all in aid of the cruise being back in Athens for Friday am for our disembarkation and embarkation of its new clients. We were outraged at this and the fact that they did not take into account how anyone felt about this nor were we even asked for our opinion.
