Hello Marco,

Welcome to the forum. I do not own an IG, but just wanted to let you know that you will be an interesting addition to the forum. Living near Florence and cruising the islands of the Med sounds absolutely wonderful. Please post as much about your cruising as you can, and also pictures pictures pictures. Do you have a blog or website for your cruises?
