Cruise itinerary

Day Port Due Depart
1 Flight departs
1 Rome (Civitavecchia)
Rome (Civitavecchia)
'The Eternal City' from unforgettable historical sights to exclusive designer shops, Rome really does have it all. Ensure you throw a coin into the Trevi fountain to make certain you'll return.
PM
2 Catania, Sicily
Catania, Sicily
Since the eighteenth century, Catania has been the second most important city of Sicily, supplanting Messina in that respect. Subjected to Etna's fickle temperament, Catania has been affected by lava flows and earthquakes on several occasion, and has some dramatic reminders.
PM PM
3 At Sea
4 Chania, Crete
Chania, Crete
The old town of Chania is really worth a visit, as it is beautifully kept. I have a few favourite places we always visit when we are there. One of them is a cooperative for Cretan artist, where they have thousands of paintings at more than resonable prices (the price is usually €100, or can be "negotiated" to that price). It is situated in a small basement of a stone house in a back alley in the old town. There are also a couple of really nice restaurants, in buldings dating back to the 17th century with a ton of history. One of them (Tamarind) is in a old Turkish Bath house, and really worth a visit.
AM PM
5 Mykonos Town, Mykonos
Mykonos Town, Mykonos
Mykonos is a beautiful Greek island famed for its natural beauty, rich history and cosmopolitan character.
AM PM
6 Ephesus (Kusadasi)
Ephesus (Kusadasi)
Visit the Hellenistic and Roman city of Ephesus, founded in the 13th century BC. The site was first excavated in 1869 by British archaeologist, J T Wood and visitors can now see many of the Roman remains. One of the attractions of Ephesus is the fact that so much of it remains intact and little imagination is required to picture what the Roman city would have looked like.
AM PM
7 Thira, Santorini
Thira, Santorini
Santorini is the very essence of Greek charm. Sugar-cube houses cling to the cliffs. Vivid blue church domes add a splash of colour. And steep cliff-sides tumble into an impossibly clear sea. Just beautiful. Sample the wine or the cliff top views, the terraced bars and restaurants or the ancient Roman ruins on Santorini.
AM PM
8 Athens (Piraeus)
Athens (Piraeus)
Athens offers a blend of traditional Greek culture and modern hustle and bustle. The Acropolis and Parthenon are not to be missed.
AM PM
9 At Sea
10 Capri (Naples)
Capri (Naples)
The central piazzetta of Capri, though preserving its modest village architecture, is lined with luxury boutiques, expensive restaurants, and paparazzi chasing celebrities.
AM PM
11 Rome (Civitavecchia)
Rome (Civitavecchia)
'The Eternal City' from unforgettable historical sights to exclusive designer shops, Rome really does have it all. Ensure you throw a coin into the Trevi fountain to make certain you'll return.

Overall the cruise was fantastic. However we booked this cruise in Sept/Oct 2018 and where travelling as part of a large group, all on different bookings and all who booked after us but also with Iglu. We did not receive any time dining as apparently 'its first come first served'. Considering we booked a good 8 months before the rest of our group surely we should of had this? Staff were not very helpful with this issue except Ben the restaurant manager who tried to accommodate us best he could. In the end we had to stick with 6pm dining which was not ideal and if we wanted to dine with our group they then had to come and sit with us.

For an older ship this was in excellent condition. Apart from a few damaged chairs in the star lounge and light bulbs out in the theatre it was top class. Entertainment was excellent and cruise director was one of the best. Crew were right on it and and any minor problems were fixed immediately. Painting and cleaning went on at every port. Voyager class is a large ship with shopping centre promenade plenty of panoramic lifts and ice ring mini golf climbing wall kids centre etc. Approximately 4000 passengers. We prefer freedom dining but this isn’t preferred by Royal Caribbean who try to get you to set a time. We understand this is required for most things on the larger RC ships. Theatre lounges etc where entertainment is on. We normally cruise with princess but this is the third time with RC and overall I would say excellent.

Ship in need of maintenance, rust on paintwork wood on the balcony railing very bad, more bare wood than varnish, food in the main dining room poor, never seen the main dining room so empty, prices for everything very expensive, certain places on the ship were overcrowded could not get seats would not recommend this ship for a cruise.
