We chose this cruise because of the ports of call. My one complaint about cruising, is it never seems like we are in port as long as I would like to be. Although, Royal Caribbean did a pretty good job of not rushing us out of port as ... Read more

We choose this cruise because of the ports of call which were awesome, but I was informed on board they will no longer be doing this nine day itinerary. The ship is small and easy to get around which I liked and was well maintained. There ... Read more

Friendly staff and good service. Relatively small and older ship, but the crew takes a lot of pride in the ship. Excellent ports of call. We went to Rhodes, Greece instead of a scheduled port call in Turkey due to political instability, ... Read more

We Chose this cruise as it was in June and the Price was good. As a Diamond + member things have gone downhill over the last 2 years. Cutbacks are there to improve profits and not for Cruises. The ship is in places grubby, some ... Read more
