12 DAY CRUISE DEPARTING FROM ROME AND ENDING IN VENICE WITH STOPS AT GREEK ISLES, TURKEY AND CROATIA. WE WERE TRULY AMAZED AT THE EFFICIENCY IN MOVING 2400 PEOPLE ON AND OFF THE SHIP AND IN AND OUT OF LAND TOURS. WE HARDLY HAD ANY DELAYS. EVEN GETTING SEATED IN THE "ANYTIME" DINNING ROOMS WAS QUICK. BREAKFAST BUFFET WAS GREAT. DINNERS WERE JUST OK. I PREFERRED TO EAT A BIG LUNCH ASHORE TO ENJOY LOCAL FOOD. I BROUGHT A BOTTLE OF LOCAL WINE BACK TO THE SHIP AT EACH STOP. SERVICE THROUGHOUT THE SHIP WAS EXCELLENT AND FRIENDLY. WE HAD AN OUTSIDE CABIN ON BAJA DECK FURTHEST TO THE STERN AND HAD NO DISTRURBANCE. THE ITINERARY WAS FANTASTIC. STOPPING ALL BUT ONE DAY AT A NEW PORT. ALTHOUGH SOME MAINTANANCE (IE CARPET REPLACEMENT, PAINTING)WAS GOING ON, IT DID NOT INCONVENIENCE US. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMMEND THIS CRUISE TO ANYONE. P.S. DO NOT TAKE THE DONKEY RIDE TO THE HILL-TOP CITY OF SANTORINI. YOU COULD GET INJURED BADLY.
