Because I live in Europe and know Italy I don't want to do any stuff on land. I will probably drive from Holland to Italy to board. Otherwise it will be Cunard from Southampton.
I am investigating the possibility of cruising to Greece and changing ships in Greece for one that goes to the Ukraine and Egypt.
When I retire I plan to cruise to Australia but thats a couple of years yet.
I think if I wasn't married to a younger man who is still going to be working when I retire I would just cruie from one place to another and be not home much
