Sail Date: Jul 2021

We couldn't wait to get back on a cruise ship and booked the Greek Islands back to back.

Every staff member was beaming when we got on board and so were we! The service was unbelievable, the food excellent and the Greek Islands are a wonderful destination.

The health protocol was strict but it didn't bother us to wear masks when we were wandering around the inside. We took them off when we sat down and as the ship was only sailing at about 35% capacity we seldom got into a crowd. Sadly we had a group of about 30 people on board that would stubbornly "forget" their masks or wear them under their chins. The staff provided them with dozens but it didn't help. This was the only negative impression. The second week we sailed with only about 350 people and everybody behaved well. We certainly felt safer on board than anywhere on land.

Cabin Review

The cabin was ample sized for seating and offered enough wardrobe space. The bathroom was also on the small side but sufficient. All in all the cabins could do with a face lift but for the time being it served us well. We also enjoyed the balcony with a table and 2 chairs.
