Ibiza
Port Rating: 1.0 out of 5+
Our excursion to "North Ibiza" took us only to Santa Eulalia, just a couple of kilometers north of the "South Ibiza" port. We visited a couple of semi-interesting churches, known primarily for their fortress-like construction as protection from pirates. We were then walked a few blocks down the the beach in Eulalia to get our "refreshments". Ushered into a rather swanky hotel, we were escorted to the patio, overlooking the water, and seated at tables for six beautifully covered in white linen. In the center of each table was a paper plate containing a few potato chips - not big ones from the top of the bag, but crumbles from the bottom - and a small dish of mixed nuts. We ordered cokes and nibbled on the chips and nuts, waiting for our refreshments, but learned shortly that we had had them. Our time being up, we were given no opportunity to wander on our own, but bused back to the ship. Not a moment too soon, I felt. What a rip-off.

We opted not to take an excursion in Monte Carlo, thinking that we could see most of the city by wandering. However, preparations for the Grand Prix, which apparently begin six months before the event and take six months afterward to take down, made the whole town decidedly pedestrian unfriendly. We had to explore, through wire fences and bleachers as through an overgrown jungle, our own path into the lower reaches of the district, avoiding drivers apparently practicing for the race on this peaceful Sunday morning. We escaped back to the ship with our lives but no other memories of Monaco.

Having an enforced extra day (totally understandable and no hard feelings) in Civitavecchia, we amused ourselves from our veranda watching a guy with a winch trying to fill the ocean with rocks. On our return ten days later, we found he had actually succeeded, to an extent.
