By 1000 the ship was empty of all passengers except for those of us remaining for the next cruise and the staff. And coffee – the machine in the Diamond Lounge is scheduled to be operational in just a few minutes. I am waiting with computer plugged in and personal mug in hand.
This is my last cruise of those on the Rhapsody this fall. Yes, believe it or not, I will be actually getting off in Barcelona after “only” four cruises. Why? Well, I mentioned that meeting in Vienna didn’t I? This will be the third time that I have been able to attend. Related to emerging infectious diseases, the conference is held on even years. Promed is one of the major sponsors. Any way, there are no ports new to me on this trip and I am going to be extremely well behaved. Museums are in my plan and not yarn shops at all since I already have several life times worth of fiber on hand..
There isn’t a lot of down time on this cruise with the only sea day being Halloween. [did I bring a costume…..]
We didn’t really bring costumes either, just clip on head bands. Will have to do.
Greetings from Barcelona, we are staying three nights at the Continental thanks to you..other than my back is out, life is good
I see you are of again on your travels .We leave tomorrow for Southampton overnight, then on to Independence for 15 nights ,and then to Califorania
I was the supervising pathologist for the lab, and the final six months of my command Livorno became part of my command, so was there often enough. Not much to see there as a tourist in Livorno proper.
Seems like your ship has as many spiders as our Maine house, judging from their webs!
and I keep thinking of the mess it is going to be taking it all down.
I hope the magic Brownies manage in the middle of the night…. Or perhaps they will leave it through the end of the cruise on the 3rd as the ship is going to dry dock.
