Mary II(or any other cruise line)
This is not a
completely money saving option, but from everything I've
the ship, this just might be the right place to spend a
little extra. And that little extra might not be as much
as you think. I've joined one of the cruise sites(there
should be some listed on the right) that offer discounted
rates. The lowest I've seen is $999
for a 6 day transatlantic crossing from NY to Southhampton,

you could potentially be at the $1500 mark for your trip
to Greece! Not that much more than flights are going for
to Greece!) So read on about what they say about this ship!(of
course you can also look into other cruise lines and departures
from other US cities)
