Our 2nd cruise with variety cruises July 2018 onboard panorama was just as amazing as our first on Harmony V (2014). We loved everything, from the food (so delicious) to the service from all the crew! The swimming from the boat was the highlight for us. Joseph our cruise co-ordination is just an amazing person, so warm and friendly and knowledgeable about all the ports, where to eat, swim, shop and of course Valeria our bar person, who remembered everyone’s name from day one, thanks for all the fun! We would highly recommend variety cruises to anyone looking for a more personal approach to cruising, the crew (including the captain) are always available for a chat, offering further insight to the cruise. We can’t wait to get on board again!
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
