Dream Dance Cruise - Three Ships, Seven Seas
The story of this month-long sea-based journey from the Black Sea to the Western Mediterranean is written as three distinct travelblogues. This is the index to the stories. Links will be added and activated as each story is posted.
The first part is about Istanbul and the Black Sea on the MV Aegean Odyssey during which we will learn of the history, art and culture of the countries bordering on the Black Sea.
Then follows a four night cruise in the Western Mediterranean on Costa Luminosa.
A brief stay in Venice and then we embark on the Italian Dreams cruise on Crystal Serenity through the Adriatic, Mediterranean and Tyrrhenian Seas to Monaco.
Three Ships: Aegean Odyssey, Costa Luminosa, Crystal Serenity.
Seven Seas: Black Sea and the sub-divisions of the Mediterranean including the Sea of Marmara, the Adriatic, Ionian, Tyrrhenian, Ligurian and Balearic Seas.
