Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the amenities.

The passenger age definitely skews to the over 60 crowd.

The food was among the best we have ever had on a cruise ship. The specialty restaurants offered a good variety of dishes. The Italian and French restaurants were the better of the 4. As New Yorkers, we have no shortage of good steakhouses or Asian restaurants so the bar is high.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

Cabin PH3

cabin was nicely appointed. Suite was 400 sq. feet. TV should have been larger given the size of the room and should have been more easily angled for viewing from the sofa. Sofa was rock hard.

Port Reviews

Athens (Piraeus)

Its your average cruise port. It will take between 45 - 90 minutes to get there from the airport. Check in was smooth.

Jerusalem (Ashdod)

missed the port
