Dec. will be my 5th cruise with my two daughters, both in their 50's. We always cruise with Carnival Cruise Line because of the relaxed and fun atmosphere as well as the cheaper prices.

Athens to Istanbul through the Greek Isles, Venice and small ports down the Adriatic, Venice to Istanbul different Adriatic ports, Greek Islands and Turkish ports. I travel alone and small ship cruises are comfortable, casual and the other passengers are more friendly and sociable than on large ships.
