Oceania Ionian Crossroads

Have you been to Greece but not Turkey?   Dave and I visited Athens, Rhodes and Mykonos back in 2006.  We always said we would go back to that region and concentrate on Turkey and the Greek Island of Corfu and Katakolon.   We want to visit some places we missed such as Olympia, Ephesus and Istanbul.

When I saw the Ionian Crossroads itinerary from Oceania I knew it was time!   Not only do we get to visit the ports we missed but we can also explore Vallata Malta which as always intrigued us.   To add to all that the cruise ends in Rome which is a perfect spot to spend some time on the Amalfi coast or perhaps head to Cinque Terre!
