7 Night Greece/Turkey/Croatia (Venice Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 05, 2006
Ship: Costa Mediterranea
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship is very large and accomodates so many passengers you lose the intimate feel and special attention you find on smaller ships. It is lavishly decorated and was fun to explore. The crew are very helpful and friendly. It is a great place to brush up on languages as five are spoken on board.

There are a few interesting sites but there was little to do and most shops and reataurants were closed.
Don't Miss: The Basilica of San Nicola

Istanbul is where Manhattan meets Baghdad. There is an eclectic mix of cultures that combines Islamic culture with the best of the West.
Don't Miss: All of the old city

A bustling port that offers a view of modern Turkey before heading off to numerous well-preserved ancient cities

Pros: Fantastic ports where you can explore ancient and modern cultures

Cons: The ship may actually be too large which gives a less relaxed atmosphere
