Sail Date: Sep 2023

We were very impressed with this older ship, despite the fact that it could do with some further updating and is a little tired looking. It is a good sized ship, with lots of space and good public places. The itinerary in the Greek islands was great, and the ship’s tours we did in Kotor, Corfu and Argostoli were all very good.

Our balcony cabin was spacious and kept very clean by our cabin attendant every day.

Food in the dining room was good, with good service, but there was more choice in Windjammers so we decided each night where we would go depending on the menus. Service there was also excellent.

Cabin Review

Although the cabin was somewhat worn it was very clean and spacious, and we enjoyed the balcony as it offered shade in the hot weather.

Port Reviews

Argostoli (Kefalonia)

This was a new port for us, and both the small town and the rest of the island were very laid back and pleasant to explore.


We chose an island tour with RCL which we thoroughly enjoyed as it not only gave us a taste of Corfu town but we got to see the other side of the island and enjoy the rugged scenery.


We had an adventure doing the RCL tour exploring Montenegro as the incredible serpentine road out of Kotor was blocked because of an accident further up and there was a huge hold up which meant we were late back to the ship, but it waited for us. We had a great guide and learnt a lot about this small country.


There was a water bus run by the port to take us into the town for only 2 euro each way, and that was enjoyable in itself. The town was really busy, but we managed to escape the crowds by exploring streets further away from the waterfront. Mykonos is beautiful, and the quintessential Greek island.
