We were 4 girl friends on one of our many adventures together. Our trip started in Rome and made its turnaround in Turkey. 
Being keen tourists we decided to do Pisa and Rome before we embarked on the trip.
When ever on a cruise we try to see as much as possible and did our own private trips in Athens to also be able to go to Delphi and in Naples to be able to do both mount Vesuvius and Pompeii. For the rest we made use of the ship’s side trips.
As South Africans such trips are quite expensive but so enjoyable.  What we most like about a cruise is that you unpack once, sleep every night in the same bed, wake up every morning to experience a new adventure in a new place, eat like kings and do not have to worry about anything.
We love to eat in the formal dining room and one evening also indulge in treating ourselves to the Italian restaurant - what an experience.
Our inside cabin however was just below the dance floor and really very noisy but we were transferred  to another cabin which made our stay very pleasant.
The food, the staff, entertainment and the (second) accommodation were so good and we enjoyed our trip thoroughly.
Me preferred way of seeing the world and have a splendid relaxing time.  Must say - getting olde a few sea days in between is just what the doctor ordered to rest because it is quite tiresome to go on a day trips and party at night and get up early for the next day’s trip. 
Because we only sleep in our cabin, we usually try to save on cost by choosing an inside cabin however it is important to check before hand what is above your cabin else you might end up below the dance floor like us🤭
