Our first Crystal cruise was also Monte Carlo-Athens on the Serenity. We went last fall 9/24-10/06/08. I guess great minds think alike.
Although your itinerary is a little different, the following posts of call are common to both cruises: Monte Carlo, Civitavecchia, Sorrento, Kusadasi, Mykonos & Athens.
If you have any questions or would like any feedback from our experiences, feel free to contact me at: Apep33 at ptd dot net.
Thanks very much Anthony.
We were in Italy for two weeks in October 2007, staying in Rome, Positano, Florence, and Venice, so have an idea as to what we'll do during our shore days in at least three ports in Italy.
We've been getting quite a lot of useful information from people here on the Crystal Board on Cruise Critic, and just wish that we were able to sail on Crystal Serenity this year...!
Our pre-cruise accommodation in London, Paris, and Nice is booked and confirmed already, now we're just waiting for when the window opens for us to be able to book our flights using frequent flyer points.
