We went on a Travel Dynamics cruise of the Western Mediterranean in June aboard the Corinthian II. We had traveled with them ten years ago aboard the Clelia II seeing Turkey and the Greek Isles and loved that, but this was even better. Our cabin was lovely with tons of closet space. Upon arrival, our cabin hostess came and introduced herself, asked if we wanted ice provided to the room regularly and if we needed additional hangers. Catherine just made us feel at home.
All of the crew was outstanding - catering to our every need. They called us by name (of course, we were wearing name tags) and were gracious at every turn.
The thing we like best about Travel Dynamics cruises is that everything is included - the accommodations, excursions, wine, wonderful meals. At the end of this cruise our bill was $250 which consisted of $20 for laundry and $230 for the crew tip.
The excursions are not only to important archeological sites, but to museums, places of historical importance, and there is usually time for shopping. We really enjoyed Nice and Segesta in Sicily.
The lectures are informative and interesting.
We walked a lot on cobblestone, marble, and dirt. There was a man on the cruise in a wheel chair and he did not miss much.
Sitting on the deck at night was enjoyable and you got to know the other passengers. Stargazing was even offered once it got dark.
We hope to go on another cruise on the Corinthian II soon.
We actually went to Bonofacio, but it wasn't on the list of choices. A neat midevil town up on the cliffs above the harbor. Lots of little shops. Lots of yachts in the harbor. We ate lunch at a little cafe in the harbor and it was wonderful.
We actually went to Trapani in Sicily, but it wasn't a choice. We went to see the ruins at Segesta which were beautiful. We only spent a half day in Sicily and I wish we had spent more time. But the views on the way to and at Segesta were amazing.
