Leaving from Barcelona on Serenade of the Seas 9/28 for a Mediterranean voyage. We're looking forward to a more port intensive journey compared to Caribbean itineraries we've traveled before. There'll be no time for sea legs on a trip such as this. BTW Rick Steves' Mediterranean Cruise Ports has been a handy guide for planning. Shoot me a line if any of you are sailing with us.

We've booked through Pied Piper to be on the Celebrity Equinox, sailing from Barcelona on the 21st August 2013, travelling around the Mediteranean for 12 nights with an overnight stop in Venice. It's just over 3 weeks away and I can't wait. This will be our 4th PP cruise and even though the LGBT roll call thread is very small (only 4 posts), hopefully, there'll be plenty of people there at the first night welcoming drinks do.
(In 2014 we're looking at the 2 week PP Trans Atlantic crossing from Fort Lauderdale to Southampton in April, with stops in Nassau, the Azores and an overnight in Bermuda.)
