I've only been on 9 cruises, but two of them have been on the Mediterranian: One on the Crystal and the other on the Grand Princess!
To me and for all the money, I BELIEVE THAT THE MED. IS THE GREATEST CRUISE going!
The scenery is better ,the people are more friendly, the locations are fabulous: Monte Carlo, Istanbul, Greek Isles, Italy Spain!
Enjoy your trip. I wish I was going with you, but my next trips are to the Caribbean, Panama Canal and Disney with the Grandkids!
Let it all hang out and have a great time!
