I think Kuki sums it up pretty well! I've cruised for the last 20+ years and there's just some places I haven't cruised to yet.
The Med has been high on my list so 2007 is the year I'm going to do it.
I've had my eye on it for years and just haven't but now that Princess is putting a small ship in service, an added incentive.
I really didn't want to do the Med on a ship with 1,500-2,500 people. I don't mind big ships but they do have their drawbacks when tendering is involved for one thing. Also traveling alone, meeting up with people more than once can be a problem on a bigger ship, too.
The Med takes some planning, more money, flight times, hotels are more expensive, meals, etc. Cruises are generally longer, too although they have 7 day ones. Trouble with 7 days is, you have the long flights to get there.
Well, that's it in a long nutshell!!!
