The day after visiting Livorno/Pisa was a day at sea as we sailed down the west coast of Italy and between Sicily and the mainland to Katakolon, Greece. Here are few ship photos and a map of our cruise route. The blue dots are where we visited. Sorry for my bad handwriting. I so seldom write by hand now. How do you join letters up?
Making waves at the side of the ship.
While I am not great with port or starboard, I know this is the ship's stern but on board it was called aft.
I don't know if there was an ice sculpture every night. This is of course the Eiffel Tower, brought out when we were in Marseille. There was at least one other I remember.
There weren't many children on the ship and most of the playground equipment seemed to be locked away. We spent a lot of time on the rear smoking deck with K & J and this giraffe watched over us. Unlike most other areas on the ship, the smoking deck was very sociable.
A pilot boarded every time we arrived or departed somewhere.
Mixing the waters with our propellers. Could the water be any more blue?
The ship theatre held about 1500 people. We saw three shows there. As we were returning from a show one evening, a fountain display was underway with the water jets in time to a selection of Michael Jackson music. Great fun. There will be more ship photos in future posts.
