:lol: I developed an unhealthy fascination with Malta three years or so ago over one of these endless what if exercises. Plus, with a bit of luck I'll be spending a day there in September.
Pictures or it didn't happen.

I'm just fascinated with this one day trip to Malta from the US. Was he to pick Mallorca, we might even meet for a copa de sangria!

Its a 24-day cruise out of Venezia, we have a day in Valleta and a day in Gozo...as well as a day in Chania.

The northern Adriatic is beautiful. Lived there for a few months, and I still think it was the best scenery I've ever seen around the Mediterranean, and God knows I've traveled its northern coast from Thessaloniki to Barcelona.

Indeed. This will be our third cruise out of Venezia (also one out of Civatavecchia). Split, Dubrovnik, Kotor, and Corfu have been ports of call.
