Cruise itinerary

Day Port Due Depart
1 Fly from the UK
1 Corfu Town, Corfu
Corfu Town, Corfu
Corfu, one of Greece's most elegant island capitals, for old town charm and wonderful beaches. A tour around the island is a must as the contrast between the old town and newer beach resorts is vast!
PM
2 At Sea
3 Koper
Koper
Sights in Koper include 15th century Praetor's Palace (Palazzo Pretorio) in Venetian Gothic style, the 12th century Carmine Rotunda church, and the Cathedral of St Nazarius with its 14th century tower.
AM PM
4 Venice
Venice
Swap shipboard life for a gondola for an unforgettable tour of one of the most romantic cities in Europe.
AM PM
5 Split
Split
The second biggest town in Croatia is the first choice for a superb day exploring the open air markets.
AM PM
6 Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik
The most beautiful city on the Croatian coast, with café terraces and the third oldest pharmacy in Europe, Dubrovnik is not one to miss.
AM PM
7 Kotor
Kotor
With a truly beautiful bay, Kotor is situated under the steep cliffs of Lovcen. An excursion to the pretty town of Budva is highly recommended.
AM PM
8 Corfu Town, Corfu
Corfu Town, Corfu
Corfu, one of Greece's most elegant island capitals, for old town charm and wonderful beaches. A tour around the island is a must as the contrast between the old town and newer beach resorts is vast!
AM PM
9 At Sea
10 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
11 Rhodes Town, Rhodes
Rhodes Town, Rhodes
The city of Rhodes is dominated, physically by the medieval castle which stands guard over the old harbour, at the eastern end of the town, its turrets and high walls delineate the town's skyline.
AM PM
12 Mykonos Town, Mykonos
Mykonos Town, Mykonos
Mykonos is a beautiful Greek island famed for its natural beauty, rich history and cosmopolitan character.
AM PM
13 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
14 Argostoli, Kefalonia AM PM
15 Corfu Town, Corfu
Corfu Town, Corfu
Corfu, one of Greece's most elegant island capitals, for old town charm and wonderful beaches. A tour around the island is a must as the contrast between the old town and newer beach resorts is vast!

This was my very first holiday on my own,and so it was with some trepidation that I set out. The flight and arrival were o.k. - the transfer to the ship without going through the airport was a surprise and very quick -, and the queue to collect the Sea Pass and lodge credit card details was not too long and I was soon on board. On finding my cabin there was a letter on the bed, inviting me as a solo traveller to a breakfast meeting the next day to meet the other solo's. After that, those who wanted to on any given evening met in the lounge before going into eat together. Having this connection allowed us to make our own arrangements to (e.g.) go to Nelsons Dockyard independently but together when we were in Antigua. Thanks must go to Amanda for arranging this. This really made a huge difference to my holiday. Another unexpected joy was finding there were ballroom dancing classes each day at 4 pm and then more social dancing each evening at 9 - led by visiting professional dancers. On the one hand I will say that it was a pity that there were not more people taking up this opportunity, but on the other hand I did get many hours of sometimes 1 to 1 tuition. Special thanks to Lisa and Phillip (week 1) and then Paul (week 2). I do hope that Marella keep this up. What excursions I took via Marella were well organised and I felt quite good value. It is not their fault that some of the islands (St Maarten in particular) are still in a poor state after the hurricane of 18 months ago. I mostly ate in the Latitude restaurant, where the food was good (although portion sizes were very variable), and service could sometimes be very slow. My cabin was a 'single' inside (with a massive double bed), more than ample storage space, but nowhere to read a book except to lie on the bed. Personally I would have preferred a smaller bed, leaving space for an easy chair. The steward kept it really clean and was really sweet. The main entertainment shows were not to my taste. The shows by the on-board company were very 'samey' in the style of the musical and dance content for each particular evening (although very competent and full of energy), and the visiting comedians (sons of one of either Cannon or Ball) were dire. I was not the only person who walked out. As I say, not to my taste, but it didn't matter too much because I could always go dancing! There were also lots of other things to do - films to watch, casino, various individual musicians in various bars (they were good), quizes, etc. etc. - so really everyone should have been able to find something they liked. The ship as a whole was fine - but then I only regard the ship as a means to an end. It is the destinations that matter to me when I book a holiday. Would I travel on this ship again? Yes - if it was going where I wanted to go!!

This ship and cruise was excellent value for money. I loved the all inclusive options. Had no reason to upgrade our drinks as the ai offered a wide variety of choice. Large balcony room was superb. Plenty of storage and the hammock was an excellent added feature.

Enjoyed cruise, good service. Good food. Lack of sun loungers. Health and safety issue in buffet. Guests allowed to handle and cut loaves of bread, with large carving knife. In the middle of a thoroughfare. I pointed this out three times and nothing was changed. Lack waiters in bars. Lounge bar a ridiculous shape, making it difficult to get served, too many stools at bar blocking access. I made all these points known to reception, Thomson encourage comments, but nothing is done to improve matters, it just keeps complaints on board ship
