Our 2003 Mediterranean Cruise left from Barcelona. This 2007 cruise departed from Civitavecchia, a coastal town northwest of Rome. The itinerary was quite different.
We cannot believe that this passenger who christened our ship had been cruising the equivalent of each day for 11.23 years!!
Unknowingly, we were treated to the presence of the lunar occultation of Venus against the backdrop of Mt. Etna on our sailing in the Straits of Messina. See the photo below.
I believe this is the best scenic cruise on the Dalmatian coast. It was worth getting up early in the morning as the ship slowly coasted to the port of Kotor.
We have been to Venice several times. On this trip, I tried to capture sections of Venice that we have not ventured into.
