Sail Date: Dec 2022
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

We had always wanted to explore Ancient Greece. This made it easy and in style. Having a single room, being able to unpack our luggage once was wonderful. The food was excellent and the ship amazing. The maintenance and upkeep were impressive and the sights from the decks, lounges, food venues and our balcony were breath taking. The seas were smooth and the captain and crew were constantly trying to avoid rough rides and did so seamlessly. The local guides were great, bus drivers very experienced. The excursions were awesome and it was so enlightening to put the lessons learned as school children into context seeing all the places where the first true democracy began. We always felt safe and the Greek people were very nice. Although I knew this civilization was old seeing the sights and extreme accomplishments of the culture made it real.I loved Ephesus, and walking the same streets as the Apostle Paul was extremely impacting. The Acropolis was incredible. Going to Delphi, Rhodes, Santorini, and Crete were amazing.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

Our cabin was very well appointed and our Steward Paulo was quick to learn our names and kept us standing tall. The bath, balcony and seating area were comfortable and attractive. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well.
