    Surely a sight to delight all Norwegian seamen - and for the rest of us a view you don't get to experience even on ships like Lofoten!







    Leaving the foredeck, I shall head for the Andrea lounge where there will be coffee and something to eat, for I shall not want to be early to breakfast today - not until we have docked.

    Day 4 – 3rd October 2017 – Portoferraio, Elba, Italy.

    Early morning mood on the bridge. Even earlier than usual, after the slowing down of the ship roused me.




    Serenissima is approaching Portoferraio on the island of Elba.

    I know you are looking in dear friend ...and yes I did think of you in Barcelons. It was just embarking this time, but I had enjoyed the city some years ago on an extended holiday tagged on to ...yes you guessed! ...the F1 Grand Prix at the nearby Circuit de Catalunya. That was before you visited Barcelona, and I KNEW you'd like it .

    Welcome in Corsica! I guess that in the picture number 2 we can see the lighthouse of La Revellata.

    Oh, beautiful Corsica! Such a perfect destination for Serenissima!

    Enjoy watching your pictures and reading the text (should've told you more often, but belive me, I'm here).
    The one moored in Barcelona certainly brought memories from our holiday back in 2016, when we spent several days in that city.
    Yes, I once threw a coin over my left shoulder in the Fontana di Trevi in Rome, meaning I'll be visiting again, but I'm more convinced I'll return to Barcelona. What a place! Loved it!

    After everyone had returned to the ship from afternoon activities, Serenissima set sail for Elba - Italy - but we will be seeing more of Corsica the day after that!

    I think I mentioned somewhere that D had taken ALL the organised excursions on the cruise, but I had forgotten the one exception that afternoon. Although there had been ample free time to relax over coffee at a quayside café, he had decided to return to the ship for lunch and remain aboard, rather than either staying in the town or joining an excursion to the Saleccia Botanical Park. He had probably done enough walking for one day, and botany isn't really his thing anyway.

    I managed to take this view from the zodiac while returning to the ship to have lunch with him, before joinging the group on the botanical visit.

    We joined the walking tour excursion around Calvi, during which there were views of Serenissima from the fortifications.

    The pilot arrives...

    ...and the pilot boat rapidly moves off.




    Half an hour later - the pilot leaves Serenissima.

    The Chief Officer was on duty next morning.

    I get my first view of Corsica, a new destination for me.

    I have to say that I love that first photo in post 1331... maybe it's the colour, the composition, or just the fact that this is one strong memory of her in my mind, from the time she was sailing Norwegian waters.

    So awesome to see that due to her size, she is able to get in to places none of those giant ships are even remotely able to get into.

    Yes Yves! I thought YOU would know We did indeed visit Le Castelet, and get to taste Frégate's rosé!

    Yes Sanary is a nice little town. Maybe the hilltop village was Le Castelet or La Cadière d'Azur, both in the wineyards. As for le domaine de la Frégate I like its rosé.
Working...
