We are planning to book our next trip with GCT.  We are torn between the Gems of the Dalmatian Coast or the French and Italian Rivieras.  There have been no reviews on the French and Italian Rivieras trip so it is hard to compare.  We were wondering if any of the experienced travelers here would have some input on both trips and make some suggestions.  Thank you so much.

 I'll post a review of the Rivieras trip after our return May 10. We have been on the Dalmatian Coast trip and loved it.  I would think it would partly depend upon whether you have already spent time in Italy and Southern France, and in Croatia.  I always favor the new experiences!  Will say more after our return. LOVE the small ships!

 We're scheduled to leave June 6 for the Provence extension and then for the French and Italian Rivieras cruise.  I'm eager to read reviews as soon as they are posted.  We did the Gems of the Dalmation Coast a couple of years ago and then the Budapest to the Black Sea last summer.  The contrast between the Croatian Coast along the Adriatic and the Danube River is amazing.  Both of those trips were great in very different ways.
