Last minute holiday and very happy

Sail Date: August 2017
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice
This was a last minute holiday and was only booked 3 days before departure. However it was chosen because of the Ship & Itinerary which suited us.

I have cruised with Celebrity Cruise in the past and thought the parent cruise company must be just as good which it was.

The ship was a bit dated but overall the cruise was perfect and we had a great time.

This is the oldest and a smaller ship within Royal Caribbean Cruise line and therefore some of the aspects are smaller or reduced but all the staff are very friendly and are making sure you have a great time.

The embarkation was smooth and all the cabins were ready by 1pm with the luggage delivered by 3pm

Shore excursions are a bit on the steep side but at least you don't have to worry about time as they will get you back in time.

Disembarkation was perfect too with all the luggage ready for collection as soon as you leave the ship.

I also attended the All Access Tour of the More ship and have learned so much about the workings behind the scene which I would have expected to be used in Marketing materials but it is not.

RCCL are leading the recycling on board and it is amazing how environmental conscious they are and what they do to reduce their carbon footprint - really impressive and better then most Hotel Resorts (having worked in the Hotel Industry for 27 years I can say that)

I recommend RCCL but next time its a bigger ship for us Less

Cabin review: D17540 Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

A bit dated but still very good - everything was working perfectly and the Balcony was a great plus.

A city worth visiting - only used the Ships shuttle service which was great

Used a local bus to Olympia with the driver insisting on a little sightseeing tour before - got us back in time though

Very nice old town and some great shops
