Sail Date: Oct 2019

We did Mediterranean cruise, out of Venice. Embarkment was smooth and luggage arrived quickly. Our room was lovely and clean. We were midship with obstructed view window. All the staff was very friendly and the ship was constantly being cleaned, walls, doors etc. Food was very good, we bought upgrade dining and had 3 choices, we visited Cagneys, Le Bistro and La Cucina. Our favourite bar was Gatsby's, piano player was great. Pool was small but sufficient, lots of hot tubs. Loungers were available and tables also for playing cards etc. Music was great by the pool. The only glitch we had was first port tender, it was chaos and 2 hours late, no explanation given. Other 2 tenders were smooth. Disembarkment was also very smooth. Overall a nice cruise, Only went to one show, not our thing. We would rather have live music. Drink package was worthwhile, and premium vodka was included. We would recommend Norwegian.

Port Reviews

Argostoli (Kefalonia)

we booked private tour with Expedia, went to Myrkos beach and swam and Melissa lake boat ride. The boat ride into the caves was a bit cheesy with long line up. Beach was beautiful but 45 minutes to swim, too short. Nice way to see island on comfy bus.


Not much to do here, pretty. 28e each to walk the wall, not worth it.


Walked around town, entry from port is not very attractive, once in the town, it was mostly vendors , not much else to do.


Tender was late so not much time here. Very pretty old city, we heard the mussels were good, so we stopped for mussels and wine, very enjoyable.
