Hi Joe,

DH and I are booked on Celebrity Galaxy's 10-day itinerary on May 21
that includes Italy, Greece, France and Spain. Might be just what you
are looking for.

includes Italy, Greece, France and Spain.

A good bet as GALAXY returns to Europe, or for a more international mix book a
verandah suite on MSC or Festival and dine full time in the more upmarket
alternate restaurant. These two lines operate four brand-new sister ships MSC
LIRICA, MSC OPERA, EUROPEAN STARS and EUROPEAN VISION, all with Italian
officers.

A recent passenger on EUROPEAN VISION commented to me that this was "the way
cruising was ten years ago before all the mega-ships."

My opinion:

Lower price: Royal Caribbean

Mid price: Celebrity, Holland America, Orient Lines (less luxury but
better lectures -- nice crowd too), P&O (British crowd, nice
operation)

High price - Windstar, Oceania (Oceania has some great promotional
deals this summer, I would jump on one if available), Swan Hellenic
(British)

Luxury - any

With Costa, you're really taking your chances -- I have heard some
extremely upset people getting off Costa cruises, although some people
like them. Biggest problems are a lot of smoke and bad food.

The places you mention would probably not all be on the same cruise --
usually you get Eastern or Western. I recommend Western Med. One
really great stop you might want to make sure you hit is Kusadasi,
Turkey, from which you can visit Ephesus, perhaps the best preserved
large Greco-Roman ruin in the world. Greek Islands are a must.

One great route is Venice-Turkey-Venice.
