This was truly an Antiquities Tour. Cultural sites demonstrated the beginning of early civilizations. The on shore excursions were well designed for a variety of people and the guides were extremely well versed in their subject areas.
The ship was superb with Scandinavian style and quality entertainment. The Cruise director was a surprise alto Soprano formally trained opera singer.... the ship lectures were outstanding and the staff on the entire ship was incredibly kind and helpful. The dining was five star in the formal dining rooms and very pleasant in the World Cafe. The bar areas were clean and comfortable with exquisite furnishings and artwork. We enjoyed the spa and time in the shops on board. We would love to have had access to an art studio on board because the sculptures and friezes we saw were inspiring. We enjoyed the captains humor during the evening entertainment and felt safe throughout our journey. Highly recommended tour!
