    Here I am again. Yeapp, it isn't just Captain's delightfully named c-gull drone that takes to the air!
    This Seagull is off down to London Heathrow today, and then tomorrow I can best describe myself as "doing a pakarang" ...so no prizes for guessing where I'm heading long haul!

    Apologies to those whose posts I may seem to have missed (actually I haven't - it was just time for comments that ran out). And especially apologies to Serenissima fans - posting some photos of the ship in Mediterranean ports will now be a December/Xmas activity.
    As will, hopefully, some photos to please our Captain from my forthcoming travels!

    Welcome home from your second "home-at-sea"... glad all went well and that you after all had a wonderful time on board.

    Can't wait to see some photos and read some stories from your time on board!

    But, all in due time as time permits - naturally!

    I have now been back a few days after what has been a very successful though inevitably exhausting trip with "cabin second-mate" (i.e. the human being rather than the soft squidgy mascot #1!).

    The Mediterranean itineraries tend to attract somewhat more sedate guests than, say, my trips to the Azores and to Panama, and the staff accompanying the local guides on excursions were very good about factoring in those all important breaks and toilet stop opportunities. Consequently, and to my absolute astonishment, D went on ALL the excursions every single day!
    Dining room staff I already knew ensured no difficulty in meal matters, AND super birthday celebrations for him!

    As I may have mentioned, the cruise date was not picked to include the birthday, but was a narrow window of opportunity before this week when D will be in hospital for a scheduled procedure/tests on Thursday. So I haven't even had time to download all my photos yet. Next update from me in a few days will hopefully be in the Serenissima thread with some answers to one of your questions

    Speaking of engine visits,,, did you ask about the stabilizers? Don't forget it !!!

  • Seagull

    Yes! There were engine visits in the afternoon - always more spectacular when underway of course! And then an absolutely yummy dinner followed a lecture about Vesuvius. This morning I photographed the volcano with a fabulous sunrise as the ship approached Naples.

    It is working out particularly well today Svein - with Birthday Greetings for D already from the cabin stewardess set out on our return from a morning excursion, and I know what will be likely to happen at dinner!

    Sorry our Corsica visits didn’t coincide! I enjoyed the visit to Calvi very much.

    Lady C is currently underway from Bonifacio to Napoli.... steaming along at just above 14 knots!

    Bet she is having a wonderful on board dinner as we speak!

    I wish you both a wonderful cruise with "Serenissima"

    A picture from Porto Di Portoferraio in the early afternoon showing "Serenissima" moored
    Not the best picture, but the ship is easily recognizable.
