I was told the best time to book Eastern Med would be May or Sept. When asking my TA she was steering me toward May until she realized I wouldn't book May until 2011 but could book Sept 2010. She than switched to why Sept was better !? I want to know the simple true from cruisers who have been there so I can make the best choice.

They are both good weather months. Personally, we would cruise or travel in that part of the world either of those months (and we have)

I agree
April, May, Sept & Oct are good months for the MED
not too hot , less tourists, prices may be cheaper.

European weather has been a bit later in settling down this last couple of years
I would go for September which is almost always nice in the Med

Either month would be fine in Med. I am actually going May 17 out of Rome on Princess for 12day Med and Greek Islands. June July August are brutally hot months and there are so many crowds - hard to really enjoy yourself. Light jacket in May at night or September fine. Also, less smog. Prices about the same either May or Sept
