We used O's Extraordinary Savings Sale to get our A3 cabin for a mere $1899 PP plus $425 OBC PP ($125 of it for the change from Venice to Trieste). So, the price alone made this trip worth it. BUT we travel for itineraries and this one did it for us. We only had the 1 sea day, which I do not enjoy that much, but we had Split, Bari, Kotor, Kavala, Istanbul, Izmir, Heraklion, and Athens!
We only ate in the 4 specialty restaurants, the Terrace Cafe and Waves. NO GDR for us. Hate to have to wait to eat and don't want to dress up. Love the TC, eating under the stars. And Waves for every breakfast. Love my Sun Salutation smoothie. We found the food uniformly favorable, in all the venues. On this cruise, we did NOT do the pizza station, which seemed very empty most nights!
We did NOT do any entertainment. We only do the comedians, and they had a magician/comedian. Don't care for that. We are NOT the string quartet type nor the afternoon tea type.
Our cabin was comfortable, clean, and quiet. Our cabin steward (Panda) and attendant (Hanie) were fantastic! They earned their end-of-cruise tip. I enjoyed the veranda in the evening before bed, sipping the beer, hard liquor and wine I brought on board at embarkation and during the cruise.
