Vacation 2007

As a followup to an earlier post on the cruise I’ll be taking in 2007, it looks like the vote is in, and we will be doing a Greek Island cruise. Instead of a 7 night cruise, however, it will be a 12 night cruise. The particular cruise we are looking at now has the following itinerary:

Day 1: Venice, Italy (using ship as hotel)
Day 2: Venice, Italy (departing at 1 PM)
Day 3: Dubrovnik, Croatia
Day 4: Corfu, Greece,
Day 5: Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Day 6: Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Day 7: Mykonos, Greece
Day 8: Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Day 9: Rhodes, Greece
Day 10: Santorini, Greece
Day 11: At Sea
Day 12: Naples/Capri, Italy
Day 13: Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

The nice thing about the cruise is that I’ll be able to knock off two continents in two weeks, since, I beleive, Turkey is considered to be in Asia. It also means, if things stay on schedule, that my parents will celebrate their 40th anniversary in Mykonos, Greece. I wonder if, 40 years ago, they ever imagined spending their 40th anniversary in Greece? It makes me wonder: where will I be spending my 40th anniversay? On the moon, perhaps? Mars? That would be pretty cool!

Planning next summer’s vacation

July 2007 is Mom and Dad’s 40th wedding anniversary and the whole family is going on a cruise in the Mediterranean in order to celebrate. Planning on this has just begun. There are two possible cruises:

7 Nights Greek Islands and Turkey
7 Nights Mediterranean (Barcelona, France, Italy)

Now, I prefer the latter, but just about everyone else prefers the former, so that is probably what we will end up doing. But I am interested to know what cruise you would choose and why. Am I the only one who would pick the Mediterranean cruise? Complete the poll and let me know what you think.
