Entertainment on a small ship (<50 to 100 pax)depends on the talents of the nautical crew and the hotel staff, the video library, and the ports you are in overnight or late. I've been surprised about how musically talented the crews are.


We don't do small ships for what most view as the "cruising lifestyle," specialty dining, entertainment options, casinos, and a lot of menu choices.  


It's all about the itinerary.

Thanks hugely for this.  We did a lot of this itinerary on an escorted land tour.  Didn't like it cause you have little free time.  Whereas with a cruise you can do what you want when ashore.  We're crossing our fingers that we can find things like your trip.

BTW, here's a couple of pix which we THINK was in Albania.  Found a few guys at an outside table having beers and food.  The guy in the pic spoke quite good English.  He took me into a next door bakery for this goodie.  And also wrote down his name and phone # in case we had any problem.  Why I love travel 🙂

The company that operates this cruise, among many other itineraries, provides guided tours at each port and also the on board tour leaders offer ad hoc local experiences in many ports. One of my favorite ad hoc  experiences was heading off to a local bar when we overnighted in Split with a couple other passengers and some of the crew to watch Croatia play Iceland for a spot in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. 


There are enough organizedactivities to keep folks occupied on a daily basis.  There is also adequate free time in many ports to get off on your own and enjoy whatever it is you enjoy. It's not you if you are the kind of person wants independent travel and don't adapt well to a group tour.

But more entertainment and restaurants on larger ships. Our was fine 12 nights 9 ports and we only tendered twice. Although I do like the thought of overnights at those ports. 

We'd rather have the overnights and eat local foods on shore, and who needs entertainment on a Med cruise?  The ports are all the entertainment I'd ever need.
