Cruising: A Change Of Heart

Not so long ago, after a particularly bad experience with a heavy swell in the Med, I vowed never to cruise again.  Well, it seems I may be having a change of heart.  This happens all the time with me, I get sick, say I’ll never do it again, book another, panic, enjoy it (mostly), hate it (sometimes) and so it goes on.  The thing is, when a cruise is good, it is very very good and no other holiday can hold a candle to it.

2009 South East Asia 080

Steve and I have been pretty dedicated cruisers over the years.  Some of these have been truly amazing, such as South East Asia (cruising through the mist into Ha Long Bay Vietnam, pictured), Amazon River, Panama Canal and Alaska.  Others, like Norway have been so beautiful I  wanted to cry.  The Med has always delivered in terms of wonderful culture and history.

So, as I have a significant birthday coming up we’re planning another, this time to the Eastern Med.  I love Greece and although we’ve holidayed there a few times, I fancy a bit of island hopping, so we’re looking at Santorini, Mykonos and Rhodes.  I’m praying for the weather gods to be kind to me!
