I booked an 8 day Med cruise for July 2013. I've been reading a lot about cruising in the summer, and the consensus is that the Mediterranean is unbearably hot during the summer. Being that I'm a school teacher I don't have much choice as to when I can vacation, and I really want to do this cruise.
Did I choose wrong? I'll be traveling with my youngest daughter who's 17, and my mother who's in her 60's. How hot is hot? We're from the Caribbean and we know what the Caribbean is like year round, but what about the heat in the Meditarranean? We'll be departing from Venice, and we'll be visiting the Greek Islands, and Turkey.
A trip to the Mediterrean is allways great. You will be OK.
