My husband and I wanted to take that trip next year, but unfortunately couldn't do it because we wanted to do a back to back cruise Rome to Athens and Athens to Istanbul.
We also wanted to spend a couple of nights in Rome and a couple in Istanbul.
So, we're hoping to do it in 2005. Your comments were very helpful and if there is anyone who has done that back to back cruise or the Rome to Athens segment we would appreciate any feedback you may have. We have plenty of time to look at all excursions, pre & post cruise stays so any advice or comments would help make our trip all the more memorable.
