Hello Friends & Family!

Russ and I did a lot of thinking and we just couldn't think of any thing we'd rather register for than a beautiful honeymoon (and memories that will last a lifetime).

We invite you, our friends and family, to help us make our idea of a perfect honeymoon come true. We've always wanted to visit Europe and have booked a beautiful Princess Cruise that starts in Athens and ends in Rome.

We'll need help with everything from our drinks on board, to our flight, hotel room, excursions. Whatever you want to give us will be very, very appreciated and we'll thank you for this chance to get our lives together off to a wonderful start.

Love, Russ & Shannon (Soon-To-Be) Sweetser
Well, we've decided. Since Russ and I have never been to Europe, we decided to cruise the Mediterranean! Not only will we get to enjoy Athens (Greece) for a day but we also get to enjoy some of the Greek Islands, Italy, the Ukraine, Bulgaria and Turkey!

We'll spend two days in Athens and two days in Rome before and after the cruise and inbetween we'll see much of the Black Sea, The Greek Isles and Italy. This is an incredible trip and since we've never been to Europe, we're understandably VERY excited.

After our two day jaunt in Rome, the Love Boat will whisk us off on a whirlwind adventure to tour Turkey, Ukraine, Bulgaria, the Greek Islands and Italian Coast before docking in Rome.

Our Room on the Cruise is: Stateroom 4000, Category E
