Our guides were wonderful. Ioannis was a fount of historical knowledge and Jacqui was fun and knowledgeable as well. Our hotels were comfortable and accommodating and we had fabulous meals! There was one downside to the trip and that was the Celestyal Crystal ship. The ship was old and it was very evident. Windows were dirty everywhere, the tables on deck and in the buffet areas were dirty and sticky. The walking deck was being painted the entire week. Maintenance was done at meal times, limiting where we could sit. We had no choice but to purchase a $280 "all inclusive drinks package" which was not only not inclusive, but outrageously expensive. It's understandable that premium liquors would not be included, but even a simple gin and tonic was excluded The Drink of the Day was excluded as well. Having been on other cruise lines, it was very disappointing that GET utilized this line.

Vacation
Amazing time. Travel directors were fantastic, and local guides were wonderful there were really passionate about their history and brought it to life. Usually our tour group was the first one of the day at the ancient sites which meant more time and less crowds. Our travel directors (land and cruise tours) really worked hard to shield, and isolate us from the rest of the other tourist crowds. For the cruise although we were with 1500 other tourists it really felt like our own special tour. Learned a lot about ancient Greece and felt like a local. This was a very active walking tour which enabled us to see many hidden sites and temples. We walked on ancient steps, walkways, and paths which really provided use a appreciation of the lush history of day-to-day life for these past civilizations. Be prepared to walk among history.

Because the single supplement was waived, I decided to make this trip although I had not planned to travel abroad this year. Price was definitely right on all counts.
