Got a Hankering for an Adriatic Cruise This Summer?

Turned off by cookie-cutter cruises that sail to overbuilt ports and force you to cut your sightseeing short or miss the local nightlife because you must race back to the ship before it sails at 5:00 p.m.?  Me too.  Which is why I'm looking forward to sailing on Azamara Club Cruises this summer. I'll be the guest speaker on its July 30 cruise, which sails from Venice to four fabulous ports of call in Croatia (I can vouch for their fabulousness because I've been to them)--Hvar, Split, Dubrovnik, and Korcula--as well as Kotor, Montenegro, and Trieste, Italy, before returning to Venice. Unlike some cruise lines, Azamara provides ample time ashore. Not only will we hit a new port every day of the week-long cruise, but the ship will linger in Hvar till midnight, and in Dubrovnik and Kotor till 11:00 p.m.  I'm particularly jazzed about Montenegro, as I've never been there before, and am considering spending the Trieste day hopping into and around Slovenia, since I've never been there either. 

So...whatcha doin' July 30? Here's the itinerary and pricing, and here's what I'll be speaking about. Of course, the best part of being a shipboard lecturer is not the formal talks but the impromptu conversations on deck and at dinner. So consider joining me at sea and, if you've got any burning travel questions you'd like me to answer in my talks, just let me know at wperrin@cntraveler.com.

Wendy - It's a long hike, but the climb to the top of Montenegro's zig-zag city wall is well worth it. The views are just stupendous. Enjoy!

Wendy,
This trip sounds wonderful. Would love to hear you speak on this cruise ship.
Have fun!
