Overall we were happy with this cruise. Our cabin was spacious and very clean. The food was inconsistent. Breakfasts and lunches were always very good, but the dinner options were either very good or disappointing. We chose the specialty dining at 60 euros a person for our last night and while it was delicious, it didn't blow us away. Wifi and cell service was extra and a hassle to set up and log in and many times it didn't work. I had two massages and they were both excellent. Excursions seems chaotic and unorganized at times and many of the excursions we had to take tender boats to the dock, which for some people it was difficult to get around. We expected Santorini's excursion to be at 5 pm to see the sunset as advertised but instead it was at 8 am. Going back to the ship, the line for the cable cars was very long so we opted to walk down the steep, zig zag cobblestone street (5000 steps on my pedometer) with the donkeys and we had to dodge the poo. Santorini was beautiful but very crowded and it wasn't even peak season yet. Mykonos and Milos were absolutely beautiful. Thessoloniki was disappointing, Crete was nice with a great ancient palace. We had an amazing time with our friends and overall we were happy with this cruise.

Cabin Review

We had a suite and it was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The cabin stewards and butler were top notch. Cabin was immaculate and bed and pillows were comfortable.
