Holiday 2012 : European Adventure

May 17th, 2012

Countdown to Holiday 2012!

[ujicountdown id=”Timer Small” expire=”2012/05/30 20:50″]

In just a few days, we will be leaving on European Adventure 2012, which will have us cruising along the Mediterranean sea! We will be boarding the Carnival Breeze in Venice, on 3rd June 2012, and this will be her very first cruise. They are currently finishing off the last of the construction of the boat, and then she will arrive in Venice on June 3rd, to start her inaugural cruise.

We will be visiting Croatia, numerous ports in Italy, Athens (possibly!!) and Izmir in Turkey, Monaco and Marseilles, and then finishing up in Barcelona, Spain

Due to my tons of business travel last year, I have managed to accumulate enough points with the Starwood group, to be staying in some of the most amazing hotels before and after the cruise. Before the cruise we will be staying in the Hotel Danieli in Venice. Hotel Danieli is located in one of the most prestigious positions in Venice, just a few steps from Saint Mark’s square, looking out over the lagoon. It is also the location of the movie “The Tourist” with Angelina Jolie. In 2012 it was voted in the Travel + Leisure’s 2012 500 list of World’s Best Hotels. Thank you Starwood SPG points, I cannot wait to experience this hotel!

I have added a current location plugin on the right side of the screen, so you can click “View My Travel Itinerary” to see where I will be on which days, and where i am currently located!

As usual, I will blogging almost every day about the daily activities and sights, so feel free to check in Daily from 1st of June for updates 🙂
