Sail Date: Aug 2022

Overall we were very disappointed with the service in the main restaurant. The issues included food cold and needed to be returned, possible food poisoning from coq au Vin, drink service very slow with reason stated it was hard to find wine glasses!

Overall this ship appeared to us to be a training ship. Lots of corners being cut, lack of management of the staff to help guide them.

The entertainment was really poor. Mike the cruise director was great, the piano player in Schooners was not fit for the job.

Cabin Review

Nice cabin, loved the balcony. Our steward absent mostly.

Port Reviews


Tourist train up mountains to 4 local vineyards very hot. This was RC tour, value for money


Booked ourselves a Segway tour with a local company. It was fantastic, covered 10 k, great guide. Up through Marjan Parc Forest to highest point in Split. Highly recommended


Arrived just sheet a storm so not the best introduction as streets very wet and sewage running down some streets!

Had booked a highlights your if Mykonos, 1/10, really poor tour. If forget that one.

Later when sun was out Myko no os was crammed, no pleasure around little Venice or at three windmills. Our least favorite port
