cruise was booked for me as part of package deal. 2 swimming pools but no water in them for 5 days !!!!! said it was all inclusive but we had to pay for water and juice.Chaotic when in port as often had to wait for over an hour to disembark due to americans receiving priority in getting off the ship to take part in excursions.Cabin very small and basic,felt like being on a cross channel ferry between Dover and Calais.

Food in dining room was good and staff very friendly. Staff in general were helpful.

Shore excursions especially in Athens were too rushed, we had roughly 3 hours ashore which was not enough to see the sights.In Athens we were halfway through climbing to the top of the acropolis when we ran out of time and the guide took us back down again !!!!! Had to buy postcards to get the full view of the Acropolis.

Cabin Review

very small and cramped and basic.

Port Reviews

Athens (Piraeus)

very rushed,decided to only go on the Acropolis part of the tour but still did not have enough time to climb to the top and take in the view.


again not enough time to fully enjoy the port.by the time we landed it was getting dark.


Oia village was lovely but not enough time again to fully enjoy.Should have continued onto Fira but ran out of time and it was dark so did not see a thing of the rest of the island.
