This is our second time on this ship and both times have had wonderful experiences. Food through out the ship is great whether in complimentary dining or in specialty dinning. I would suggest of you want a rare steak be sure to talk to the matri’d to ensure a truly rare (blue) steak. Out of the 6 steaks ordered on our 10 day cruise only 1 was delivered rare on first try. Wonderful upgrades to dietary notification in main dinning rooms as well as specialty restaurants however Raffels could have better designations. In Rhodes, Greece the tour Lindos and it’s Acropolis was a fantastic tour but be aware it is not for the faint of heart. As an active person, it was a challenge from the walk down to the village. They offer buses down to the village for an additional cost as well as you can rent a poorly treated local donkey to carry you up past the point that you need to work out at all if you can look past their sad faces. Highly recommend seeing the Corinth Canal as it is beautiful to behold from above as well as from boats. While visiting the Islands of Santorini would highly recommend booking a tour through the boat to take you to the new port and be a first round on the tenders. Please do not take the donkey’s up or down the stairs. These animals are horribly abused and just because you don’t want to wait in the gondola line and don’t walk down. If you decide to walk down, wear proper walking shoes and be aware the stones are very worn and therefore slick. Highly recomend if you have the upgraded dinning package, make your reservations before you board the boat.

Older ship but nicely updated

Cabin Review

Oceanview Porthole Window
Cabin OG 6508
Don’t book this room, it must be just above where the lines go out because when we arrive or leave it’s very loud. There were sounds of water in the room constistantly. Size of room was great and service was fantastic.
