The cruise hit several locations we wanted to visit. We were glad we started in Greece then Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia and went to Italy. We did extend our trip 2 days in Venice which was a must. The locations seemed to improve as we headed north. The food was outstanding and the daily wine choices were great. We should have taken more advantage of the onboard entertainment. The crew were outstanding. They were very attentive and funny. We appreciate their efforts and service. The excursions were great we did upgrade a few. The history and culture were amazing. Great cultural enrichment and wine! We overpacked. Having the onboard washers and dryers were great to recycle and bring less. We recommend being self aware as a traveler. We were disappointed by the rudeness of some of the other travelers. When something did not go perfect the ship crew always worked hard and quickly to correct it. Be patient.

Cabin Review

Cabin 5003
The cabin was nice and sufficient. Our room flooded and we had to live out of 2 rooms climbing over equipment to get to our clothes. We would have moved but we were told the issue would be corrected in 6-8 hours but it took a day and a half. No communication when it was ready and no check in of how we were doing. Also, I’m guessing because we were temporarily in another room we did not get an end of the trip survey. Expected more.

  • Jeep Tour
    Outstanding. One of the highlights of the trip. Our guide Bob was outstanding. He helped make the trip fun.

  • Land & Sea Tour
    Normally enjoy any opportunity to be on the water. Most people were inside and didn't get to enjoy being out in the air and enjoying the ride. The reverse trip left too early to enjoy the city. We took the bus back which was a good call.

  • Olympia Archeological Tour
    Great tour. Wished it would have moved a bit faster so we could have more free time in town to experience the local culture.
