My husband is a travel consultant and found out about this cruise at a training. We have always wanted to visit these amazing destinations...Greece, Egypt, Israel, Cyprus, Turkey and Rhodes. The ship was not the newest, but extremely clean. The people working on the ship were extremely friendly. Although there were people from many countries on the ship English was used for announcements, entertainment, etc. Many excursions were included in the price. They all were escorted by a guide who was very well educated in the destinations. Drinks were included in the cruise fare and they were extremely generous. The cabin was more than adequate, as we were very Port intensive. There were many choices of where to eat. Buffet was available for all meals and also two sit down restaurants. In the bar areas you could order pizza, burgers, sandwiches for a small fee. We were very pleasantly surprised by the cruise!!!
