I need to know Golden's Summer itineraries; I know it will sail from Barcelona to Istanbul but I need to have the departure dates and the itinerary with ports of call.
I live in Venice and I want to know when it will be docked in my city to go to take some pics.
I tried to have infos in Princess web site but I didn't find anything.
Golden Princess's itinerary for summer is.
MEDITERRANEAN/BLACK SEA/HOLY LAND, 2000 & 2001
Golden Princess cruises between Barcelona and Istanbul from May 28-September 13, 2000 visiting Monte Carlo, Livorno (Pisa/Florence), Naples/Capri, Venice, Athens, and Ephesus with overnight on board in Barcelona, Istanbul and Venice.
The May 28th voyage leaves from Barcelona on May 28th. That would put it in Venice on June 3rd.
You can get an example of the Istanbul to Barcelona itinerary here on CruiseMates. There is a September CruiseMates cruise on the Golden Princess. You can check it out at <http://www.cruisemates.com/Articles/CMcruises/golden.cfm>
Or just click on CruisMates Cruises on the Home Page.
Eastbound, the ports of call are as follows: Barcelona (overnight), Monte Carlo, Livorno (for Florence and Pisa), Naples (for Capri and Pompeii), Venice (overnight), Pireaus (for Athens), Kusadasi (for Ephesus), and Istanbul (overnight).
I posted some comments on each of these ports of call in reply to Paul Motter's post announcing the CruiseMates cruise aboard this ship in September on the "Europe" discussion board. That was one of the first two or three threads on the new "Europe" board, so you might need to select "older posts" a few times to get back to the beginning.
