It was sa-weeetttt! Seriously, we had so many cool experience in two Mediterranean weeks. It was an amazing 12 day Cruise from Istanbul to Rome, with a few extra days added on in Rome. As this was our Honeymoon, we wanted to splurge a little and upgraded to a semi-luxury liner. Cruises can get expensive really fast when you go beyond the main lines. Luckily, Mr. PnP found Oceania, a cruise line designed for people looking for great food and destinations without all the other flashy stuff. It was the best combination for us to maximize our sightseeing, and enjoy the excellent food and laid-back cruising. As I post about each destination, I'll link back here.
