Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

We chose this cruise as a great way to see many cities without changing hotels nightly and coordinating transportation from city to city. We wanted to see enough of each City to be able to determine if a return visit was of interest.

We took advantage of some of the many shore excursions offered but mostly scheduled private tours. We created quite a robust schedule and in retrospect it probably would have been better, in some cases, not to schedule anything and just wander a bit.

The Norwegian shore excursions were very well organized but really there were too many people in one place and in most cases it seemed too metered and didn't allow the opportunity for really stopping in any place too long to independently shop, eat, or explore.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Beautiful cabin with plenty of storage and room to lounge and move around with two adults. Everything was thoughtfully placed; lighting, outlets, make-up mirror, fridge, electronic charging outlets etc.

Our cabin attendant Diego was marvelous and super helpful in a non-intrusive way.

Port Reviews

Athens (Piraeus)

We took a private tour.

Mykonos

We hired a private guide and did Delos as well. Amazing!

Argostoli (Kefalonia)

Liked this day as it was a leisurely day to explore and relax at your own pace.

Kotor

Didn't leave the ship. Was sick.

Taormina (Messina)

Arranged a private tour and went to see the Black Madonna and Sinagra. Awesome!

Naples

Private tour of Naples and the Amalfi Coast. Went to Pompeii also. That was an awesome day.

Florence (Livorno)

We had a private tour of Florence and I would return to Florence again. So much to see and not enough time!
