The Windjammer was JAMMED with people. The poor staff at the doors were threatening to call security as people pushed passed their roped off doorways. Smokers convene at the entrance to the buffet so it is necessary to pass through a cloud of smoke to enter. Long lines to get on and off the ship, long embarkation process, near the end of which they force passengers through the entire length of a duty free shop just to board the ship. Talk about a terrible first impression. It took five hours for luggage to arrive. Zero point in getting off the ship in Santorini or Athens in summer. Ship advertises excursions but doesn't tell you that if you don't book one in Santorini, you will spend all day waiting in line for the cable car. 2-3 hours wait for a sixty second ride - BOTH WAYS. There were four cruise ships sitting in the harbor at Mykonos. Why go there with 12,000 people? Imagine what that looks like in a small "charming" village?

The pool is ridiculously small for the number of guests. My kids got in it once and said it was gross.

If they kept the buffet open all day or at least in the middle of the day, there might be less people clamoring to get in at meal times. The place was overrun and totally unpleasant. Could NEVER get an elevator.

Cabin Review

We had one inside and one ocean view to accommodate our family of five. The Ocean view was tight, but the window was large and unobstructed. The inside cabin was an absolute dungeon and no one wanted to be in it, ever, which was a problem because that was the one we had for three.
