Need Your Med Cruise Tips/Blogs/Trip Reports!
 
I just booked our first Med cruise for August 10, 2013! :banana::banana:I'll be going with my sister and 14 year old (she'll be 14 at that time). I've been looking on the boards for any tips from past cruisers. Anal Annie posted a link to her blog and I got so much out of it and it got me thinking that I'd love to see others! It's never too early to start planning right? If you have any tips or links to share from your past Med cruise I'd love to see them! Anything about excursions or ports or planning would be awesome. We'd love to do at least a few ports on our own. Thanks in advance!

This one was the push I need to book the Med last summer.

Have a look here and you will find some of the ones I read before we went.

I've just started compiling some planning links over in our 7/13/13 Eastern Mediterranean Mouseketeer meet thread. It is in post 3 of our meet thread. Hope this helps. By the way, I've discovered that many links people post (especially youtube ones) become obsolete so can't promise that everything we list on post 3 works!

Thank you all so much! I have seriously been sitting here reading blogs most of the day as I'm the only person at home today. I've gotten through the Fairy Godblogger report and the Disneyfalcon one. The photos are so amazing and Becky has convinced me to do the Palo brunch! I'm going to have to go through all of the reports again just to start writing down all of the tips I'm finding!!

This is a trip report I did from 2007 Med
 
This report is a very detailed report on Barcelona - we had a 4 night pre cruise stay there. It contains lots of photos and also details of our pre- cruise dis meets.

Med cruise 2007 - details review & pictures of Barcelona and boarding the magic

Hope you enjoy! You can probably tell from the review Barcelona is now my most favourite city! :goodvibes

I kept a Journal but it is on Microsoft Word. If you would like it PM me and I can sent it to your email as an attachment. We loved the cruise. We did a lot of private van tours with other passengers that worked out great. There was a lot less walking because the vans could bring you much closer to the attractions than the buses. Part of the deal in Rome included our own private guide in the Vatican. The van held about 7 people and we split the cost. We had the best time and all the drivers were excellent and we got bak to the ship in pleanty of time.

Leaning Tower
 
I just wanted to share this with you as this Castle was the view I had every morning and night all my life, when I opened and closed my bedroom curtains. :)

Interesting fact: The tower of Pisa, one of the wonders of the world, may be taller than Caerphilly, but it certainly does not lean as much. The figures prove it. Pisa - 180 feet high, 12 foot out of perpendicular, or 1 in 15. Caerphilly - 77 feet high, 11 foot out of perpendicular, or 1 in 7. So may be our leaning tower should become a wonder of the world....
