Marina is looking good as usual. Food was good to great. No real misses, everything is better than the mainstream lines. Ports were very good with 3 days in Isreal. Getting on the ship is amazing, 5 minutes at peak time. They processed everything on board, was a nice touch. The ship never feels overcrowded and laid out well. Ports were good. Ship tours thru O-Life Florence/Pisa, Rome, Capri, Cyprus. 3 great, Cyprus not much to see. Did our own thing in Isreal with rental car and hotel. Able to see everything we wanted! A few other Greek stops like Rhodes then disembark in Athens. Again very smooth disembark. Only negative would be we didn’t care for Red Ginger. Service was excellent just isn’t our taste. Tuscany and Polo great, Jacques very good. Main DR good a few great dishes. Again nothing bad. Terrace for lunch and once for dinner. Prefer dining room. Also room service was slow but that was likely because everyone was returning tired from Isreal. Older group and ship was in bed by 10, fine for us! Went for few lectures, they were very good. Didn’t go to any shows but heard the comedian was good. Overall great cruise, great service. A notch below luxury but above the norm.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin B2
Lots of room, plenty of storage. Balcony rear port side. Clean. Balcony below is extended so you can see the ones below, but didn’t cause any problems.
