Hi Kearney, Greece, Turkey, the Black Sea, sailing through the Corinth Canal. Why not try the delightfully small Thomson Calypso sailing from Thessaloniki, Greece. Adults only, 450 passengers only and a wonderfully relaxed vibe. The same eating arrangements - assigned seating for dinner but the bistro option if you don't want to go to the dining room. The same (or better) entertainment. Fabulous excursions but easy to do on your own. A very little ship with a very big heart. I have been on the Spirit, Destiny, Celebration. the Emerald and the late lamented Topaz as well as other higher (and lower) end ships. In 2007 I heard the Calypso was entering service for Thomsons and I booked for the Black Sea and Aegean trips in September 2007. As soon as I came home I booked for June 2008 for the Ionian and Aegean trips and before I went on that cruise I booked for the Black Sea and Aegean (June 2009) and Egypt, Cyprus and the Holy Land (October 2009). Go for it - you will not be disappointed.

Why not try Greece and broaden your horizons. The excursions are as good and DIYing is just as easy, so if that's the ship you prefer go with it, personnally I wouldn't hesitate. .....Neil.

We sailed on the Spirit in July this year and really wanted to cruise a different area next year but with Thomson losing one of it's fleet, the choices were limited. So we have booked for 14 nights on the Celebration - this is the very ship that I met my partner on last year - and are going round the Adriatic coast and the Greek islands. We are looking forward to exploring new parts of the World, as we have 'done' most of the tourist spots on the Western Med. For excursions, look on the Thomsons web site and read up on all the ports of call.
