    Early in the next morning we arrived at Dubrovnik.
    I had a terrible bad back (rheumatic spin problems) and could just hardly make some very less steps this day.
    So i had to stay aboard and the ladies went to town alone.
    Enjoy Regine pictures, you see anyway most of her pictures during this report. The camera in her 7 is a lot better than those in my 5S. You can clearly see that in direct comparison.

    The market was waiting for customers. At this time of the day the locals are still the majority.

    Dubrovnik is full of small and narrow alleys. I have chosen the nicest ones.

    Not all of them are empty and abandoned.

      When you meet the harbour, you have crossed the old town.

      In remote corner, a sign was leading through a small door through the town wall offering refreshments. So they enjoyed an incredible expensive drink (thanks to Kuna all Euro prices are ridiculous), but had a nice view. The roundwalk on the town wall costs meanwhile 200 Kuna (about 28 Euro). They take only Kuna or credit cards at the cassa. So they ladies said friendly: thank you.

        Dubrovnik is overcrowded. You can see that clearly here: The street at 8.30 a.m.

        And the same place at 10 a.m.

        And do we really need this? Must the Chinese people fly over from China to buy at the Mediterranean Sea Chinese christmas junk?

          And there are still more to come: The town gate from the cruise harbour side.

          So they came back earlier than they thought. And isn't this an inviting place for a late morning coffee or an apéro?

          At noon we left this beautiful place and were happy. The early morning is the only time of the day, when you can enjoy. The Captain looks quite satisfied. Only the passage back to Venice is left. Tommorrow this cruise will be over and there were no problems at all with the ship and the schedule.

            In the afternoon we had the bridge excursion, which i showed before. Then there was tea-time, coc-ktail hour, farewell dinner and music. And we enjoyed another terriffic sunset.

            The suitcases had also to be packed and were collected during the night at deck 3.

            So we say thank you for following our cruise report and have a merry christmas and a happy new year.

            I will be back a while later with a Venice special, because we stayed there for another two days. Stay tuned!

              Looking forward to the Venice special Ralf. Thanks for the voyage to the Med, it's a lot easier (and cheaper) when you do the travelling for us! This has been a fun trip.
              Cheers,

              Mark.

                so pity that your back cost you a day out a shore.
                but this was a magical trip ,
                but strange though that they sheduled the big eye catcher late on the day that the end was in the dark of sailing out of the canal
                best regards Thijs
