Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2019

Overall the reason my family chose this ship was because of the itinerary on overnight stays and long stays in port on each island. You did not feel rushed on the islands like sometimes you might on a Caribbean cruise. I believe a cruise is the best way to visit multiple islands in Greece in a short amount of time, but I would not suggest this cruise to anyone. Even though it has a great itinerary, the ship is lacking many things to make your trip better while on board.


-Itinerary is great and spent 2 nights in Santorini.

Cabin Review

Cabin Exterior Stateroom

Cabin was small but good since most of the time you were on the islands anyways and just needed a place to rest your head. I would not spend the extra money for the nicer rooms on the ship as they are not that much nicer.

Port Reviews

Athens (Piraeus)

Started cruise and ended cruise here.


Great port and excursion

Crete (Heraklion)

This place was good but do not spend 2 days here. We had no choice due to bad weather.
