The Panorama is a lovely small ship with an international staff that is fun to be around. The chef does a very nice job with a variety of fresh foods, including local fish, salads of all kinds, and homemade desserts that are creative and attractive.

The captain is a capable seaman who jumps in to help passengers who have health issues while on board. The cruise director is on top of whatever is happening with each individual passenger, and gives a thorough explanation of each port before passengers arrive in the port.

The beauty of the ship is its small size. With just under 30 passengers, we are treated as individuals, and the cruise director often takes part in the excursions off the ship with the passengers.

While the ports are not all wonderful places (Saranda, Albania, is not a beautiful town) the staff has found archeological and historical sites that make them worthy of a stop and an excursion.

We had one evening of entertainment, when a group of dancers from the island of Corfu came to dance for and with us; great fun.

Passengers are a global lot; our fellow guests on board were from Australia, Canada and Europe as well as the U.S. and we enjoyed the different points of view that we all explored at dinners and on deck.

Ship cabins were small, clean, adequate and spartan.

The nicest part of the cruise, for this writer, was being able to jump off the stern of the ship to swim leisurely in the warm waters of the Adriatic. Others were able to take the motorboat in to nice beaches, to snorkel, and in one case, to kite board.

Dubrovnik, where we started the cruise, was a delightful surprise in that it is such a beautiful and historic town, with a fascinating, walkable city wall, a cable car that allowed for spectacular viewing of the town from above, and a town full of museums and art galleries and musical events happening in public squares.

The food of Dubrovnik is excellent, and the b&b's and boutique hotels within the walls of the Old City attractive and full of Croatian atmosphere, if you can maneuver all of the up and down stone steps. If you take the cable car up the mountain, there is a good museum of the Croatian war of the 1990's built into one of the spots where the fighting actually took place.
