Eastern Med. Cruising 2010
- 25 responses so far
I was looking at this last year too. For the stops in Egypt and Israel though, I want to know how much time we would be spending there. I don’t know all that much about cruising and how long docking is typically for.
I was kind of interested in this tour as well, but I’m not sure how popular it would be?
I am very interested in this cruise too. I think there would be quite a bit of interest in this cruise.
hi! i too am super-close to paying for this cruise but am trying to further research to figure out if this is the way to go for me and my posse <!--graemlin::)--> i did find that the ship is called the christal, and here is an itinerary for the cruise itself that u may find helpful…i’m also trying to figure out if the few hours we’re docked in each city is enough time to not feel “cheated”

I am booked for this trip in August. I actually was on the cristal this past summer and it was really nice
Im booked on the 26th August 2010.
Anyone booked on the same trip yet?
It will be my 3rd Contiki back to back as Im doing 4 in a row for 69 days.
Hi all, I have booked the cruise with my partner departing on Apr 22nd.
Hi Everybody! I’ve booked this tour for July 28,2010..I was wondering if there was anybody out there going on this same tour..please let me know! Thanks :-)
This cruise look very interesting. Initially i was interested in the ‘Spain, Portugal and Morocco’ tour by Trafalgar. Contiki doesnt offer that one but at least Contiki gives one the chance to be amongst people of the same age group.
This tour seems to be a good combination of culture and relaxation. I don’t however see Istanbul featured at all which is strange!
I’m looking at booking for August/September…
I definatley want to do this trip. I can’t decide if I should go in late July or August. When is everyone else going?
September 23rd anyone?
Im planning for September 23 – although from what I’ve read that is pretty close to winter where many tourist places close shop particularly in Mykonos and Santorini…On the plus side those places will be quieter as the peak period is July/August which means less crowds and cheaper prices! <!--graemlin::)-->
booked for the 26th of August. <!--graemlin::cool:-->
Me and two of my friend were thinking about the September 8 2010 tour. Anyone else interested?
Hey, I’m doing the Aug 26th tour as well.
Im thinking of travelling alone, how many others are doing the same. Planning on the Aug 26!
I’m still in the process of deciding if i should book for may 19th…….I’d be traveling alone. My concern is about the amount of countries in 7 days……it’s a bit crazy, however, at least i won’t be bored…..I just hope there is enough time in each country to really enjoy it……….Anyone planning on going on the same days….?
anyone for May 19th?
Come on the Aug 26th tour!
We have a separate forum for those of you who are booked in or thinking about it <!--graemlin::)-->
