Thanks, also would it be easy to go out by ourselves and explore at each of the destinations or should we stick to the cruise's excursions
nice itinerary. Since this will be your first time cruising here is what I suggest. I hope others chime in and give their suggestions also. The weather should be around mid 60's during the day and high 40's at night. Although it is December, southern Italy and Greece should still be warm. Rome will be a little cooler but still comfortable. Turkey may be a little cool; but again not that bad. If you take a lightweight jacket and sweaters you should be fine. If you look on the european boards you can get some info about shore excursions. Taking the cruise line shore excursions costs a little more; but they provide everything plus a piece of mind that you are covered in case anything goes wrong.
