This year my wife and I will be celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. I'd like to take my wife on a trip to remember. We have been on cruises in the past and have enjoyed them quite a bit, especially on smaller ships. We have never been to Europe and would like to cruise the Mediterranean. What cruise line would you recommend? My budget is around $20,000.
Dear Milton, First of all, congratulations on your upcoming anniversary! I think you are on the right track itinerary and budget wise for an amazing trip. My itinerary recommendations would be at least a ten day sailing (Athens to Barcelona, Venice to Barcelona, Istanbul to Cannes, etc); you would definitely be able to explore the most beautiful cities and ports in the Mediterranean. As for cruise lines, with your budget I'd stay with upscale lines Silversea, Radisson or Seabourn. Simply put, these cruise lines offer small intimate ships with first-rate service and exquisite cuisine. The perfect setting to celebrate such a wonderful occasion!
I hope I've been helpful. Happy Anniversary & Bon Voyage!
