Travel choice - historical sites or tropical paradise?

Jump to last reply

We are in the early stages of planning our next trip. The tough part is deciding where to go. I often wonder how others who love travel pick their next destination. Last year, we narrowed down our short list and ended up deciding between Iceland and a second trip to Africa (Iceland and it was fantastic). It does seem a little strange that our top two choices were so different, but there you have it.

Now, the finalists are a trip on a small ship (Lindblad Expeditions, SeaCloud) to Turkey and Greece vs. a trip to French Polynesia. I realize, of course, that the two options are completely different.

I am leaning towards Turkey/Greece but it seems harder to get a feel for what the trip would be like. We don't normally travel on a ship, but the SeaCloud is kind of special - a refurbished 1930 sailing yacht with 58 guest capacity. The stops are Istanbul, Didyma, Bodrum, Santorini, Hora, and Delos. We would add a few days to explore Istanbul for a total travel time of 2 weeks. What say you Turkey and Greece experts? Is it a travesty to have one day stops in these sites, excepting Istanbul? Any comments on traveling along the Turkish coast/Greek Isles in a small ship?
