  1. I am not a big fan of cruises, but this one sounds way out of the ordinary. Like you say, being on a smaller boat makes all the difference. I’ve never been on a cruise on the Mediterranean, but reading about your experience makes me want to try it too. I wonder how expensive this is, usually smaller boats cost way more then the regular cruise lines.

    • This itinerary was wonderful, Anda, but unfortunately they aren’t doing this exact itinerary this year. Similar ones are, though, and they are often on sale…right now starting at $1620/pp for 7 nts. I’ve sailed on Star Clippers for a Caribbean cruise as well and really enjoyed it. You’ll have to give it a try! Small ships are, to me, the best way to go…
