Our state room was fantastic.

Cabin Review


Cabin BF

14th Deck Riviera Balcony, way up toward the front of the ship. Gorgeous room, full closet, loads of storage, lots of lighting, great ventilation, mini-fridge, one electric outlet on the desk, one in the bathroom, plenty of water pressure, powerful heating/cooling system. We loved it.

Port Reviews

Athens (Piraeus)

If you are boarding at Piraeus, and the ship is docked at Berth 12, you need to know that it isn't a plausible walk from the subway. Better to take a cab.


This was my favorite port. Hiking up 100+stories to the castle is worth it, and a great accomplishment. The touristy town of Kotor is a delight with narrow streets and many shops. We found a Montenegran restaurant off the beaten path, which was very good and had WiFi: Cesarica.


Sagrada Familia is not to be missed, and if you don't have a tour then you'll need to buy your tickets online months in advance because they sell out. But don't neglect Gaudi's other work -- Casa Batllo especially, but also La Pedrera and Park Guell, to get a richer understanding of what Gaudi was up to (for example, his other works aren't religious at all).
