Subject: Re: Mediterranean Cruise in '06
Hi Sandy,

We too are going to be first time cruisers of the Oceania Cruise Line next June. We have booked the Nautica in June of 2006 going from Istanbul to Athens. I will be very interested to hear any Ziner's input on this.

We are hoping to fly from New York to either Frankfurt or London and spend a day and then continue on to Istanbul. The time difference between NYC and Istanbul is seven hours and the only direct flight leaves NYC at 5:30pm and arrives the next morning at 9:30am (both times are local). My husband would be unable to fly for eleven straight hours.
