Mediterranean Honeymoon

For our honeymoon, we went on a Mediterranean cruise of a lifetime with Princess Cruise Lines for just shy of 2 weeks during September 2008. We visited the following places: Venice, Athens, Istanbul, Sorrento, Capri, Marceilles, Florence, Barcelona, Kusadasi, Rome, among others. Click on the thumbnails below to view the galleries.

Hi Angela!

I’m getting married this summer and we’re going on a Mediterranean cruise too! :) I’m not sure what company you went with (we’re going on a Princess cruise), but I’m wondering if you guys did any of the excursions or just planned your own days on shore? Thanks!

PS- Love your new blog design!

Hi Natasha!

Congrats on your engagement!
Yes we used Princess Cruise lines and they were fantastic! Highly recommended. Food was great too. We did just 1 excursion with princess because they were quite expensive and we found that it was much cheaper to do self-guided excursions. This was A LOT of work and planning though. We bought guide books for each major city and did lots of prep (sometimes the night before we arrived!). We did the bus/train thing a couple times and also got cabs. It eneded up being much cheaper. We also liked the freedom of not being stuck with a big group. There are a couple excursions that you probably want to be with a tour depending on the city though (some are a bit less safe than others).

have fun, I want to go back!

Angela :)

Hi Aimee, I actually wasnt a vegan at the time, so I’m afraid I dont have much advice. However, I did eat mostly plant based back then too. It was very easy for me to find healthy food to eat. I dont remember though if they had things like tofu and whatnot. I would maybe call ahead and ask?
