Barcelona to Turkey in September WOW!
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
I made many new friends on my journeys. In Rome I met Sheila, a powerhouse of a woman who was my new BFF as we headed out of the Vatican, maps in hand and a desire to hop a subway and see what all we could track down in half a day. We found the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and the Coliseum and a great place for Lasagna. In Santorini I met Patricia S.W. from the UK. A delightful gal who had the wonderful idea of stopping the running around long enough to have a coffee along the way and More actually BE there in the moment. Then we had moussaka and Greek salad. And another BFF was born. (E-mail me, I have lost your info, I have pictures of you.)
There were new folks to meet at dinner, in ports and on deck. How can you not like people adventurous to go on a cruise and stomp around Pompeii.
All in all while a cruise might be what you make it, having the important things such as food, travel in and out of ports, entertainment all handled makes it easier to sit back and let the serendipity happen. Less
Room 1082 was magnificent. A wonderful balcony. Of course it is on the fulcrum so any rough waters are minimized. It is far enough a way from elevators as to not have crowds mulling about. The bathroom was lovely, beds VERY comfy, as were the pillows.
Seemed like a training cruise
Overall a great experience
