Naples, Italy

Thursday, June 19, 2008

BreakfastAnother quick breakfast and we were off to see the city of Naples.
Too Much SnackingShortly after getting off the boat, we spotted a cafe, which are all over the place. In Italy, it seems that cafes look a little like small bars, but people are standing around drinking cafes (what we think of as espresso). […]

Another Day at Sea

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

BreakfastIt’s a long way between Santorini and Naples so it’s a whole day at sea. It’s great cause we can relax and sun bathe but bad cause we’ll be eating a lot without the walking a lot. We slept in and it was too late to eat in the dining room so we had to […]

Santorini, Greece

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

BreakfastBreakfast was standard. Lon ate another one of those chocolate almond pastries but I resisted the platter of donuts.
Getting LostSantorini was by far my favorite stop, which is no surprise. Everyone raves about it and it is truly wonderful. Our boat anchored out in the water. We boarded tenders to get to shore, […]

Rhodes, Greece

Monday, June 16, 2008

Nothing interesting about the buffet breakfast today.
Rhodes is also very touristy, but at least there’s more to see than just stores. We walked through the Palace of the Grand Masters, which exhibits ancient jugs, bowls, jewelry, etc. within beautiful stone and marble walls. We took plenty of great photos before looking for lunch, where […]

Kusadasi, Turkey

Friday, June 13, 2008

I was excited to see an interesting variety of quiches at the buffet this morning. Unfortunately, they were ice cold, just pulled from the fridge. I couldn’t eat it and I really wanted to. There were flavors like mushroom leek, artichoke goat cheese, sausage and potato, etc. Too bad…

Shopping and Apple Tea
Kusadasi is known for […]

Mykonos, Greece

Thursday, June 12, 2008

BreakfastWe’re about half way through the cruise and we’re starting to feel full just about 24 hours a day. We actually wake up still full from the day before so we managed to avoid the donuts at the buffet this morning.
LunchMykonos was really cute, although again very touristy. I loved the white buildings, the famous […]

Athens, Greece

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

BreakfastWe went to the buffet for breakfast again, mostly the same old stuff so I didn’t bother taking pictures. We had the lemon almond pastry today (they do seem to serve different flavors daily) which was very good.
LunchThe ship parks in Piraeus so we had to take the train into Athens, where we walked around […]

Katakolon, Greece

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

BreakfastWe had time for a leisurely breakfast in the dining room, which started with more donuts, still the best part of breakfast on the boat. I had a sugar donut, Lon had a chocolate almond pastry, and we shared a pretty good blueberry muffin. The Mushroom Fritatta was over-cooked, while the cheese on top was […]

Corfu, Greece

Monday, June 9, 2008

BreakfastWe went for the buffet for breakfast again since I wanted to hop off the boat as quickly as possible. There was a selection of sliced meats this time. I had some prosciutto and black forest ham, which were ok (I know I’ve been wearing out the word “ok”, but that’s really the best way […]

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Monday, June 9, 2008

BreakfastWe woke up later than I had hoped but we really needed the sleep. We went to the Horizon Buffet for a quick breakfast where the offerings weren’t that enticing. Lon picked up some pates from a large selection but didn’t really enjoy them. The rest was pretty standard buffet stuff, bacon, scrambled eggs, bread. […]
