Have you ever been on a cruise? As part of our European trip, we booked a Western Mediterranean Cruise with Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas.
A couple of months ago I was thinking about back packing through Europe. Then I got turned off by the idea of staying in hostels and traveling for weeks with all my stuff. Booking hotels in various cities was looking expensive and that’s when I thought about the cruise.
I chose Royal Caribbean’s 7-Night Western Mediterranean cruise because it made stops in the same cities I wanted to visit.
Here is a very nice write-up of a couple that sailed on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas to the Western Mediterranean. Some very nice picture of the ship and ports. I have been on this ship when it was sailing in the Caribbean and it is one of my favorites.
