Thinking of a cruise to the Med? – see Anne’s Port Short

Anne Vipond, author of Mediterranean By Cruise Ship, returned from her recent 12-day Mediterranean cruise from Venice to Barcelona on Holland America’s Nieuw Amsterdam. It was a port-intensive cruise with lots to see and experience. Join Anne on this first port short as she gives viewers an outline of the itinerary of this exciting voyage.

The Mediterranean is a fascinating region of Europe. A highway of trade for thousands of years, the Mediterranean Sea brought about exchanges of culture and knowledge. Italy was the epicenter of this social and cultural enrichment and is the focus of this cruise.
