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.

Corinth Canal by BoatWonderful experience. We’d been to Athens before which meant we saw all the typical sights. This was a great way to get more depth into the area.View All 19 Corinth Canal by Boat Reviews

Sorrento & Amalfi Coast by BoatWe’d already visited Pompeii on our last visit so we opted for the Sorento and Amalfi Coast tour. It was amazing to see the ingenuity and creativityView All 11 Sorrento & Amalfi Coast by Boat Reviews
RhodesWould easily be considered a more advanced activity tour. Many of our participants weren’t able to make the trip because of the strenuous up hill, unsteady walk.View All 10,612 Rhodes Cruise Port Reviews

Oia VillageBook through the cruise line to get a tender to the new port and a bus up to Fiera. Otherwise tendering can take hours.View All 188 Oia Village Reviews
Wine TastingThe description made it sound like you were touring just the winery but the 4 1/2 hours were mostly spent on the bus with about 45 min at the winery. Very disappointed as were most on the excursionView All 19 Wine Tasting Reviews
