We chose this cruise because of it itinerary, Greece / Italy and because the ship is very nice in terms of size/scale. The embarkation and disembarkation process was very smooth. Our cabin was very nice and our steward handled our requests quickly. I think the food in the dining room could be improved; however, the wait staff in for our table were very nice and attentive. With regards to Santorini and Mykonos tendering was required. For Santorini we had to get tender tickets in the morning. I don't know how the process can be improved. But if you are booking with a local tour agent you need to factor tendering into your timeline. Wth Mykonos a tender ticket was not required. Depending on where the ship anchors you may need to take a shuttle to get to the town. We also had great weather and smooth sailing. No complaints. We would definitely book this cruise again.
