We stayed 3d2n on the Athena Elegance with our 3 year old energetic boy and were really happy with the cruise. Manager Tim is a very smart and kind man and speaks really good english. Staff is very helpfull, kind, easygoing but also very professional. We were worried about safety beforehand (kid) and all our concernes were washed away. New and good equipment, clean rooms and good and healthy food. Apt for vegetarians. Tim was informed well about the ingredients ( my wife has a gluten intolerance). We had some reall nice days and take home only the best memories. Highly recommended!!
