Greece& Italy cruise
I am looking for a cruise that would visit these two countries. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I am giving princess a try April 2007 Italy and Greece. Some lines are cheaper but so many had mixed reviews I ended up looking at princess and costa and dumped the rest. Greek cruise lines are tricky there is a lot posted on them in the cruise section.
I am not into cruising that much but my travel group is so I am giving it a shot.

We're doing Windstar in early June from Athens to Istanbul. They also have Greek/Italian itineraries.

I am going on a 2007 Oceania cruise that goes to several ports in Italy and Greece, plus Croatia. I've heard great things.

Holland Am has a great cruise out of Rome through the G Isle, touching Turkey (a bonus). We were on in June 06 -- great ship, great ports. HAL also has several variations in this area. Look them up.

We have booked RCCL Splendour of the Seas departs Venice visits several Greek ports plus Split Croatia and returns to Venice. We plan to do a few days pre-cruise in Italy then travel to Venice for the cruise. We have booked November 2007 but this cruise goes on several other dates as well. We are big fans of RCCL and look forward to the cruise.
