This is a little surprise:

4. Eastern Mediterranean - Italy, Greece, Turkey, Black Sea

Did you like the Black Sea? Because I want to see it, but I also wonder if it will be somewhat boring and have the same kind of sameness the Baltic has.
Why would this be a surprise?

The Black Sea is wonderful. The Ukraine ports of Odessa, Svestapol (sp) and Yalta were beautiful and Istanbul is one of the most interesting places you will find. I only spent one day there and really want to go back. We did this a number of years ago on a fourteen day Renaissance cruise that started in Athens. If you like an "Old World" experience then it is a good choice. With Greece and/or Italy included it is a diverse experience.

Perhaps I should have said: Black Sea Cruise instead of Eastern Med.

Take care,
