Although, it was a 9 day cruise it felt less because the first day is counted as day one in Barcelona, Spain and before getting to Dubrovnick, Croatia you spent a day at sea although its counted as a day and debarkation in Venice, Italy.
You lose a day just flying to Spain and you lose a day returning to LAX.
Did I mention it was super hot, hot, sticky humid!! I don't know if the weather is like that all Europe, but if we are planning on visiting Germany next year in July, may God help us tolerate the weather.
