Port calls to Santorini, Mykonos, Athens, and Katakolon await you! Travelers will discover each island differs in its beauty, shopping, food, and activities. Recommend to reserve on board excursions especially in the area of transportation in order to fully enjoy each island. Port call for Rome requires the traveler to consider arriving a couple days prior to embarkation or staying after disembarkation in order to visit some of the amazing historical sites of Rome. Metro is your cheapest means of transportation in Rome. While the port calls for this sailing are truly amazing, the cruise itself is lame. The ship and cabins are clean and comfortable, but lacks its shine in décor. The ship offers a couple specialty restaurants coupled with cafes, the Windjammer, and the main dinning as it is with other ships from Royal Caribbean. While passengers will find the dinning service satisfactory, they will quickly discover that the entertainment and activities are unsatisfactory. The performance shows were average as they lacked vitality. The night clubs and other like events were short lived as they lacked participants and closed early. There are two cruising days that provided passengers with some day time activities, but most preferred to stay by the poolside and hot tubs. While each of the three pools offered space, the entertainment for the two adult pools were few and far between. Pre-arranged transportation from and to the airport is a must! While our family and friends experienced a smooth embarkation with pre-arranged transportation, the disembarkation and transportation to the airport were disorganized as Royal Caribbean staff redirected passengers incorrectly and elevators on the ship were jammed packed with anxious travelers needing to catch early flights. Overall, this sailing while on board was a disappointment compared to other ships and sailings of Royal Caribbean. The most amazing experiences took place at each port of call. Santorini, my favorite, one must dine while overlooking the Aegean Sea!

Say "Yes" to Greece, But "No" to Jewel of the Seas
