I'm in Istanbul today, having just disembarked from a fun, educational cruise on the Voyages to Antiquity MV Aegean Odyssey. We traveled to several fascinating ports of call, and I'll have articles and photos of the ship and itinerary up on the About.com Cruises site soon. This morning, I was delighted to see the brand new Costa Favolosa, which was just officially named on July 2 in Trieste, sail into the city. It's always exciting to see new ships!
