If you have ever dreamed of doing Italy and Greece!
What a great opportunity to travel with Richard and Linda Eyres. They are the experts when it comes to marriage and family. They will be sharing their vast knowledge of marriage and family relationships during several seminars while on your cruise through the Greek Islands. This special trip also includes another fantastic educator, Dr. S. Michael Wilcox. He is an expert on Italy and Greece History.
If you have ever dreamed of doing Italy and Greece, jump on board. Italy is hard to see from a ship, as there just isn’t enough time in port to really experience cities like Rome and Florence. With our well planned land tour we will be able to take the time to really enjoy Rome and Florence as well as visiting places the ship does not stop – places like San Gimignano, Ravenna, Tuscany, the Italian countryside and so much more. We even visit Verona home of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Throughout your land tour we will stay in deluxe hotels and tour in deluxe buses.
A Beautiful Royal Caribbean Cruise ship will take us into the Mediterranean to experience places like the walled city of Dubrovnik Croatia and the fantastic ruins of Ephesus Turkey. Your cruise also includes the romantic city of Venice and the most beautiful island in Greece, the island of Santorini.
