Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View

We had never been to the Adriatic and a small ship seemed the best way to go. Having been on Oceania the year before, we knew that the food would be amazing and we certainly weren't disappointed. The itinerary was excellent with more to see than we could possibly fit into 10 days. The sense of history is incredible. Highly recommend Venice, Ancona, Dubrovnik and Kotor if you have never been there. Rhodes and the Greek Coast were also enjoyable. Other stops were Santorini and Rhodes both of which we needed more time to explore. We had very rough weather in Santorini which made embarkation an adventure, but the crew were very diligent in keeping everyone safe.

We highly recommend the old towns in Dubrovnik and Rhodes as the is literally dozens of things to see. Kotor is stunningly beautiful as is the Croation coast line.

Everywhere we went, the people were friendly and helpful.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View

Cabin C1

Very clean with lots of storage and huge window. We didn't take a balcony (did on prior cruise as we were stopping every day and the weather forecast was on the cool side we decided a deluxe ocean view was satisfactory. Cabin was much larger than similar on other lines. Bathroom is smaller than on the 2 newer ships, but still larger than other cruise lines for non suite rooms. OUr room steward was fantastic and was able to provide electrical adapters when we found we hadn't brought enough. (Both my wife and I have BPaps which require North American plugs).

Port Reviews

Venice

Enjoyable day. We picked this as my wife is handicapped and it was easy. We met a number of new people who were also on our cruise.

Ancona

Did a walking tour with friends while my wife stayed by the pool. Fascinating town. Would like to go back.

Corfu

Next time would take a cab into the city market and just wander. Corfu was experiencing a garbage strike and things were beginning to smell.

Santorini

Not our favorite place as my wife found it very difficult to walk around due to her handicap. The views are spectacular but everything is very expensive and there is too little to do.
