I loved the idea of real sailing and always wanted to see the smaller ports in the Med, so when I saw that on reposition one could travel the entire width of the Med (Turkey to Caneries), I signed up for the whole 35 days.

Even with the single supplement, the price was quite reasonable; the accommodations, food and service excellent. Sailing into the small ports was as nostalgic and picturesque as I hoped.

This is an active cruise. There are at least two flights of steep stairs, one often damp from the elements. Shore excursions are limited and require walking about 2 km. Most passengers just get off in port and walk throughout the town, so even the limited choice may see one option cancelled. Many ports are tender accessed, so transfer between a small bouncing lifeboat and smaller exposed platform is required: a feat when seas are not perfectly calm. There isn’t a lot of public space, most gathered around the bar to socialize.
