The ports were of interest, lots of historical interest. 10 out of the 12 days were port days, I could have stood another day or two at sea as we were very busy. We loved the Lincoln Center and BB Kings, the main stage shows were OK but really not our thing. We ate every night in the dining room and they allowed me to order my meal the night before as I am celiac which was a huge bonus. They had great gluten free bread every night which was a nice touch. The staff were fantastic and very attentive. We loved the salad bar and the omlete bar and there is even a gluten free station with gluten free pasta and at breakfast they can make GF waffles etc! They even can make GF pizza. All I would say is that they don't advertise it enough as we didn't know about it until half way through the cruise.

Highlights of Greece!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VA 5136
The cabin is close to the back of the mid ship section. The draperies and furniture have recently been upgraded and they were lovely. The bathroom is ready for an upgrade, functional but definitely worn.
