July 14th - Eastern Med Cruising

8 May 2010 LKAT said

I haven't seen any discussions on this date. Anyone signed up yet? I was hoping to visit Asia this go round, but it doesn't look like my vacation time will allow. So, Eastern Med Cruising it is! I'll be traveling solo and maybe heading to Jordan for a couple days after the cruise... <BR><BR>Woot! Woot!

    I haven’t finalized the trip yet. Soon, though! I had to make sure my vacation dates were cleared with my company and now I can make plans! I know for sure that I won’t be getting in early. I’ll have a few days after the cruise, but I’ll be getting there last minute for the start. What about you? Where are you from?

    Princess, I read on the other post that your birthday is during the cruise!! I’d say cruising around the Med is a great way to spend your birthday! We’ll have to celebrate!

    Hey guys! Just booked my trip departing the USA (NJ) on the 14th and arrive in Athens on the 15th around 2pm. Seems that there is at least a few of us arriving the same time (possibly the same connecting flight from Rome?)

    I also depart a day after so I can take the optional tour of the Acropolis that last day. Can’t wait to meet all of you and catch up with you.

    Hey everybody.

    I am also taking the Eastern Med. Cruise leaving July 14. I spending a few extra days in Athens after the trip and leaving for NY on the 25 am. I am wicked excited!! I am looking forward to meeting all of you. Is anyone doing the Plaka meal the night we get there?

  • 27 Jun 2010 Kelly said


    Hey Julz – YES!!!! I’m on the 11am flight out of Rome. I alos have my privacy settings quite strict on FB but I’ll disable them so you can find me. lol. can’t wait for the trip! I actually arrive in Rome around 730 am but i don’t think it’s enough time for me to do anything but hang out at the airport. Frowner<!--graemlin::(--> SO, we can meet there. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Explorer 1192655 – I’m pretty sure I’m going to do the Plaka district dinner that first night. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Everyone~ my email is so you can find me on FB. –Kelly Robertson Smiler<!-graemlin::)—>

  • 28 Jun 2010 LKAT said



    I ran into the same problem as Julz. I was able to find you on facebook, but it wouldn’t allow me to add or message you. You can search for me by email @ .

    There is a possibility that I will be changing my flight into Athens, but as of right now I will be getting in at 2pm on the 15. Julz & Kelly….you guys interested in splitting a cab since we are all getting in at the same time?

    Oh, and I also plan on doing the Plaka meal….I’m sure it’ll be a great way to meet everyone in the group!


  • 28 Jun 2010 Kelly said


    Hey Ladies~ sorry, i thought i changed the privacy setting…hm. i’ll look into that. I will request you right now while i’m online. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    yes, let’s plan on sharing a cab! Laura, if you change ur flight then def let us know! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 28 Jun 2010 Explorer1192655 said


    Hey all-

    Talked with Kelly and I am getting in about 1/2 hour before her. Soo I am willing to wait for you all to share a cab…but how are we going to meet each other…Should I make a sign!! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->


  • 3 Jul 2010 Kelly said


    laura, julz & I are on the same flight so it shouldn’ be too hard to find us at the luggage carousel Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Sam, when i have the flight info in front of me, i’l post that way you can keep updated on our flight (bc if you’re early an we’re late, etc etc….you should just go ahead to the hotel then).

    getting more excited…12 more days for me Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
