Itinerary with expert speakers to give background was appealing. Dr Paul Roberts was particularly outstanding but Keats expert fascinating as was Mary Beard's husband!
The Cruise Director Richard was wonderful - for his entertaining cabarets and quizzes but also being the life and soul of the ship.
Some of the places - such as Dubrovnik and Pompeii were very busy but the Shore team managed it well and transport back and fro to the ship was well managed. Paestum best for stunning temples and few people.
Enjoyed eating outside and appreciated waiters carrying the trays. Very friendly crew in dining and cabin service. Range and quality of fresh food brilliant and pastry chef produced beautiful tarts,cakes and biscuits.
I liked the Library and spent hours reading the travel books but also borrowed some good fiction. We all did the daily crossword. We booked through Mr Bridge so we had duplicate every evening organised by their great team.
Captain was friendly and communicative - even attended our Bridge cocktall party as a courtesy.
I was initially disappointed with this cabin as the bed was crammed between 3 walls and a chest of drawers and it was small.
Want to commend staff at Voyages of Antiquity's Oxford office for taking immediate steps to put this right. Jos and his team were fantastic and have nothing but praise for them. They take customer satisfaction seriously.
