Those choices are soooo lame, that's not the real thing! Now if it were a U2-themed pub b
rawl, or a CSI cruise passenger autopsy... an interrogation KGB style in St. Petersburg is what I want! Let me watch a mafia killing in Sicily! Let's spice up the days at sea by feeding the cruise director to sharks! Sheesh, don't those cruise line people watch reality TV?
Seriously, I agree with the majority of the posters above. Those tours sound absolutely horrible. I'd also like to see something that pertains to *real* life at the destinations, as opposed to something staged. The cooking classes are an excellent idea! How does Sicilian history translate into today's life on the island? How do you get fresh water on a remote island? I really enjoy learning
something new on my vacations (not studying - learning as in "didn't know that before, glad I took that trip and saw xyz"). To me, travelling is about developing an appreciation for different cultures and places, and none of the above excursions deliver that.
