I’ve never been to Greece or Italy, but I have been to Thailand during the winter, and it was perfect! I stayed in Phuket at a hotel right on the beach. It wasn’t too hot, not too cold. It was beautiful; great places to shop (very cheap compared to the US), to explore (ride the elephants, scuba dive, snorkel, hike!), and their are awesome shows to watch as well. Also, the food is excellent, especially if you love spicy food.

Now on the other hand, Greece and Italy are definitely on my bucket list, and I have friends that went to those places, and they LOVED them. They went during the summer, however. I know the cruises to Greece don’t run during the winter, but you said you were willing to consider going taking another avenue.

I suppose you have to ask yourself which place you’d most love to go, which weather you prefer. Cost of course is a factor. I think no matter which trip you pick, it will be lovely!

The Med in late Oct/Nov won’t be very warm. Plus you get more for your money in Thailand!

@ticatica:  I agree- Thailand will be much warmer and cost effective than Italy/Greece. But if you do not care about the weather than Italy/Greece would be okay at that time of year (some rain in Italy depending on where you go). but the two will be very different holidays- Italy/greece more sightseeing and busy- Thailand more beachy and laidback (well except for the hustle & bustle of Bangkok).

Both are options woudl be great and I love Italy and Thailand so I am probably no help in picking between the two!
