I just today finalized a 16 day Russian (Volga) River cruise from Moscow (3 day) to St. Petersberg (4 day) starting August 23. On the same day I finalized a 15-day RT cruise RT from San Diego to Hawaii on the Amsterdam (not the Rotterdam). So what I spotted for Greece this year will have to wait until next year.
However I have lots of available free air due to me so I will be open to something in the spring, when there is anothe batch of transatlantic repositionings, if that appeals to you. I especially like the big band cruises, but anything with a lot of days on the open seas sounds good to me. By the way, I am a senior who can pass (I'm told) for 68. Like to dance, socialize, read, play bridge, walk four miles (1 hour) on the deck, compatible, and I like to believe, considerate. So from my end it looks as though something might work out.
I had done the Greek Islands before, but not enough islands and not enough days. So there are lots of possibilities.
There are even a couple of cruises from San Diego, Ca., to Sydney by way of Auckland with lots of Pacific Island stops in between which are also appealing. (Shortest I have seen is for 29 days.) My wife had debilitating cancer for four years, so this cruise/travel itch has had a long time to build up steam (mixed analogy?)
So let's keep in touch. It would help if you would send me your email.
For Europe or transatlantic I can use as much lead time as possible in order to snare one of the available "free" air-mile tickets.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
