I just returned from seven days at sea aboard Oceania Cruises’ fabulous ship Riviera, along with 24 people traveling with the ISU Alumni Association.
We started in Athens and toured the spectacularly beautiful island of Santorini, historic Rhodes, and gorgeous Mykonos. We stopped at Kusadasi, Turkey, and the nearby ancient ruins of Ephesus, known as one of the best-preserved ancient cities in the world. We spent a day in Kavala, on the Greek mainland. And we ended our tour in fabulous Istanbul, with its Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazaar, and other wonderful sights.
Our tour operator, GoNext, and the crew of the Riviera took great care of us. The service was fantastic, and the food was even better! Nobody walked away hungry, that’s for sure.
If you’ve traveled with the ISU Alumni Association before, you know our Traveling Cyclones tours are the best around. If you haven’t, you don’t know what you’re missing! ISUAA travel director Shellie Andersen has just announced the travel line-up for 2015. Check it out!
