We choose this cruise based on the ports. It had longer times in port and went to almost every destination we wanted within 10 days.
We were very impressed with our embarkation when we were allowed to board and dine with our friends who were in a lower class than us. We were concierge and they were veranda.
The staff in general were very attentive and not pushy to sell things which made this cruise a plus among others.
As for dinner dining, we can not say enough for Lalita and Bernard. It only took the first night and we were sold by their amazing service and friendliness. Every night after we reserved the same table at the Opus so we could be served by our new friends. Aside from the service, the food was amazing! We were so impressed.
Other forms of dinning were great at the upper deck grill and the buffet. We do not recommend room service. It was really low quality for breakfast. Honesty, the best Gelato was on board our ship (ironically)!
We really enjoyed the activities they had available on the days at sea, but did not get a chance to see any shows, drink or party, or even gamble. After all, we were there for the ports and wanted to get an early night for each excursion ahead. The formal nights however were very elegant and as the whole boat felt upscale, we were excited to participate with our own formal wear.
The whole ship was immaculate and upscale that made us feel like we were all in the same class. There was a quite a few crowds that varied from families to seniors, but because of the size of the ship, it felt very cozy, private, and less crowded over all.
The room was large and had a great sized veranda. In the concierge class we received an appetizer plate each night, and were able to request a cheese and fruit plate later on. We also loved the pillow menu, shower head, and toiletries. The only thing we didn't like was the gap between the two mattresses. It kept getting bigger throughout the night which made it harder to sleep next to each other.
Within our class our wonderful attendant Romeo was nothing short of perfect with keeping things professional and personable. We would be happy to be in concierge again if we had him every time.
This was before and after our port. So many options here to choose from. Amazing city!
Wonderful tour of this theatre with views of Mt. Edna and the coastline.View All 19 Teatro Greco Reviews

Once we were dropped off by the Hop on Hop off bus, we paid ourselves and waited to get on a boat. It was very fast and not like a tour, just a ride to and from the waters of the grotto. Worth the price.View All 32 Blue Grotto Boat Trip Reviews
The Hop on Hop off buses provide an audio tour in several languages. Unfortunately, these buses had a hard time being on time or professional. If you never get off until the end, you'll actually be okay.View All 78 City Tour Reviews
We went on a Sunday during the Fisherman's market and dropped off from the Hop on Hop Off bus. It was quite a site to see all the colorful boats. Most of it was vendors selling food and dishes to eat. A great place to stop for lunch.View All 13 Marsaxlokk Bay Reviews
No need to take an excursion here. Just take the free shuttle bus from the new port to the old and walk around the town and see the windmills. Easy and enjoyable.
Rhodes has been nicknamed “The island of the Knights”. Most people don’t think of medieval knights when they think of the Greek islands. But is was nicknamed after the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem, who once conquered the land.

The Acropolis of Lindos is quite a site to see when in Rhodes. Transportation is one of your biggest factors if you plan to see it. We had a wonderful tour with which took the pressure off transportation, as well as provide history of the area.View All 51 Lindos Walking Tour Reviews

No need for a tour here. Just get an early tender to beat the crowds, take the cable car up to Fira, grab a taxi to Oia, do your own walking photo safari of the blue dome churches and then grab lunch at Oia or Fira and you're good to go.
Head out early to beat the crowds by grabbing a taxi, heading to the Acropolis and then walking around to all the other tourist sites. Its easy and fun to navigate through the tourist areas. or you can get on the Hop on Hop off bus.
A beautiful tour with a small group and guide to Sorento, Positano, and back to Naples. Plenty of time to shop and have lunch in these amazing towns.View All 284 Amalfi Coast Reviews
