We were looking at taking the Golden Princess around the Med (with older in-laws and our kids)but now think that it may be too long-esp after adding a day in Rome before and a day in Venice after. I was looking into the shorter 7 day Splendour cruise (June, 06) but many of the reviews are really bad-food, service, ship, etc. Has anyone been on it recently? When was the last dry dock? My in-laws really want to see Athens and Ephesus. Thanks!
