The primary reason I chose the "adriatic odyssey" on the Callisto was the opportunity of daily swimming from the boat. The brochure advertised almost daily swimming, but in reality we were able to swim only once from the boat in the entire week. Something to do with the ship being of Panamanian registry. Whatever the reason, this is by definition false advertising, and given the cost of the cruise, pretty outrageous.
After having traveled around the world with my wife over the past 30 years, we never expected to have our cruise aboard the Callisto this past May, 2018 be the trip of our lifetimes. From the captain on down through the rest of the crew, we found everyone to be of the highest caliber professionally, and accommodating to the extreme. The food was extraordinary and artistically presented. Thank you Variety for a trip we will never forget. We're already planning our next voyage with you. John and Traudy
