Mediterranean Cruise 2008

 
 

Right after Hurricane Ike hit the TX coast, (we were supposed to fly out of Houston, but were switched to a flight from Dallas) we flew to Frankfurt and on to Venice where we arranged to stay for a night before we boarded  Holland America’s Zuiderdam for our 24-day cruise that would take us from Venice to Barcelona. It was definitely a port-intensive trip, but we were prepared and thoroughly enjoyed it.  By using cruisecritic.com we were able to find others to share private tours with (and obtain outstanding info about who to use for them) and so were able to maximize our time in each port, as well as make new friends!
