Default Did I Make an Unwise Choice?

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.

Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Go when you can go. I've been in August and it wasn't too bad.

A trip to the Mediterrean is allways great. You will be OK.

Hi there, I wouldn't worry, 'hot' is a very subjective value, what is hot to someone from Northern America may be quite cool to someone from say Florida or the Caribbean.

Temerpatures are also always cooler on the ships as you tend to get a sea breeze across the open decks.

Take a look at Gate 1 Travel - Europe Average Temperatures it has the average temperatures of the major cities month-by-month, I am sure it will resolve any concerns.

Hope this is of help, and I wish you a great time

Alan.
