As I live in Europe, most cruises (except for 1) were done in Europe.
Been to Venice and Greek Islands several times.

By checking the site you mentioned I found out it should be this cruise.

7-Nights "Singles Cruise to The Greek Islands May 16th - May 23rd, 2004
Visits Bari/Italy, and these Greece destinations - Corfu, Santorini, Piraeus/Athens,
Katakolon, Dubrovik
Departs From Venice, Italy

Actually I've only NOT been to Bari, as far as I know this will only be a short technical stop, I've had these kind of stops before.
Well, I think you will enjoy all the other ports of call, except for Katakolon though.
Corfu, Santorini are very nice islands where you'll have a great time.
Piraeus is the city where you will dock, and it's easy to get to Athens from there. Well, ofcourse you know Athens is the capital of Greece, so this should be fun (and hot)
Dubrovnik is a very nice city in Croatia, not the capital, but it's quite big and nice.
Be sure you make it to the old part of town here, you will love it.
Katakolon, well.... I've been there three times, and it's really nothing at all.
The only reason ships stop at Katakolon is because of Olympia.
From Katakolon you're able to reach Olympia and visit the spot where the Olympics once begun.
I totally reccomend you on going to Olympia if you want to do something that day, because staying in Katakolon is just a waste of time.

That's it for now, if you would like to have more detailed reviews on these ports of call, I will gladly do so in a few days.

Bolero, Calypso (2), Carnival Victory
