2016 Mediterranean trip

We are about to embark on a trip to the Mediterranean. We have indulged and booked a room the Viking Sea - a brand new ship on its maiden voyage! We chose this cruise because it spends the most time in port and only one day spent at sea. It is also a smaller boat (900 berth), with no casino and alcohol is free but only with meals. It goes without saying that we are looking forward to this!

We will visit to Vienna for a few days and then spend some time in Istanbul prior to the beginning of our cruise.
After the cruise we are travelling a little more economically through Italy via train, staying in Airbnb with friends.
Then we return to Istanbul for an Intrepid tour of Turkey. We have travelled with Intrepid twice before and find their trips are great for getting to know people and experiencing a little local culture.

My bags are almost packed :)
