Embarkation was great, we had no problem. We and some other folk had a few problems with entry to our cabin on the first day and other days. First Day we could not enter our cabin as our Key Card did not work. My husband waited in line with other cruisers for 25 minutes to find a solution, he was given another card. Wait for it.... that didn't work either, queue again, 20 minutes, we were all told that there was a problem and to take a walk around the ship. We had to leave our luggage outside the cabin. After about 2.5 hours we gained entry, This happened to us again on 2 other occasions. It was VERY frustrating. My solution would have been to allow us entry (master key) and let us shower and unpack. We know that there was many other cruisers in the same situation. We enjoyed the entertainment offered on this cruise. Dining was excellent. Please remember fellow cruisers when you hog sun beds leave towels and a small item on them for up to 2 hours while you take breakfast, it can cause hardship for elderly people looking for a rest, we and other cruisers witnessed this. Staff were slow to remove their towels and make room for these people. When they did, oh my! On return to claim the sun bed they tried to order the old folk off who had these sun beds.

Sort out the cabin door problems.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Full Day Athens tour
    We arranged through roll call a excursion with pktravelgreece.com. I could not attend but hubby did. It was a great excursion which involved Acropolis, and all the various sites and temples. Check his website. He refunded my tour cost back to us. That was really kind. Great tour great people. ( Hubby did not think much of Athens city)

  • La Spezia (Cinque Terre)
    Great Day DIY. Caught shuttle bus and then walked to the train station about 14E for 2 people. We caught the train to Monterosso Al Mare we then walked from the village to Vernazza. Fantastic, we will always remember this! Wear sturdy shoes and plenty of sun screen, plus water. It was a hot day, and it can be tough.

    Coliseum was on strike our tour guide very quickly re-arranged our tour, and we managed to see everything. Strike only lasted a few hours. Bravo!! He arranged a guide for the Vatican (no waiting in queues) We stopped for lunch, Look up Rome in Limo. You will not be disappointed.
