    Drei zerschlagene Nächte

    December 16, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    Entgegen unserer Idee - wir schlafen schön auf der Fähre und gehen dann einigermaßen ausgeruht herunter - haben beide Fähren riesige Verspätung, so dass wir jeweils mitten in der Nacht auf die Fähre und in Barcelona auch wieder mitten in der Nacht runterfahren. Wenn man sich dann mit dem Kinderwagen und einem Kleinkind zwischen eng stehenden LKWs durchschlängeln muss, während die Einweiser laut rumbrüllen wird sogar Erna wach, die sonst nicht viel wecken kann. Resi wird beim Gang an und von Board beide Male wach und ist quietschfidel um 3 Uhr nachts, findet es anscheinend spannend...
    Auf der ersten Fähre, als wir dann endlich alle in den Kojen lagen, ist Kaki später nachts noch einmal wach geworden, weil Erna an den oberen Bettstangen geturnt hat, und hängend zu ihm sagte "Guck mal was ich kann, Papa!" 🙈 Um halb 6 morgens sitze ich dann mit beiden Kindern im leeren Boardrestaurant. Klasse! Ich hole einen Kakao für Erna und mich, wobei erstere diesen umkippt und Kuh und Manni (Ernas Weggefährten neben Löwe) ein Kakobad nehmen und von nun an halb braun durch die Gegend getragen werden. Immerhin sind beide Male andere Kinder in der mäßig bestückten "Kid's Corner", und Kaki und ich können uns mit "nachschlafen" abwechseln. Zwischendurch muss auch mal das Tablet eine Weile herhalten und es werden Bücherei-eBooks geschaut. Bei der Querung Italiens gab es auch für uns nochmal Weihnachtsfeeling - Italien zugeschneit! In Barcelona sind die Temperaturen nun wieder angenehm. Nur die Nächte sind frisch.

    Civitavecchia - Port of Rome

    December 7, 2017 in Italy ⋅

    Heute haben wir einen kleinen Ausflug in Civitavecchia gemacht und uns gegen die Fahrt nach Rom entschieden.

    Der Winter ist zum Glück schon jetzt vorbei und wir konnten den Sonnenuntergang im Whirlpool sehen.

    Unser nächster Stop ist dann Heraklion auf Kreta am 9.12.!

    Monte Carlo, Monaco

    April 20, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Another day, another country...this time one of the world's smallest countries, Monaco and it's main region Monte Carlo. The only smaller country is The Vatican City, Monaco is well known for its Casino, Princess Grace, and of course the famous Formula 1 car race, but more about that later.

    We had a tour, rather temptingly titled "Jewels of Cote d'Azur" which was basically a bus ride along the French Riviera to Nice, visiting the small town of Eze along the way. Eze is a village perched high on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Mediterranean. There are only about 50 inhabitants that live there which is quite understandable because you have to climb rather steepish hills to get there - cars can only go so far. We wandered around the narrow alleyways until we found a courtyard that had fantastic views. Brad was busy getting some photos when a well dressed gentleman came after us to advise us this was a private terrace - there was a sign on the gate (if they wanted it private they should have closed the gate). Didn't matter, Brad had already taken the photos.

    Then we headed to Nice, which is really just another city. Their beach is covered in large pebbles about the size of your palm, not really conducive to sunbathing but the water looked nice. Had a large flat area dotted with water jets that kids, adults and dogs were enjoying and I would not have minded having a go myself but we were off to lunch and I don't think a wet t-shirt was quite appropriate.

    After lunch it was back to Monte Carlo to check out some of the highlights such as the palace where Princess Grace/Prince Rainier lived and where Princess Caroline lives, the cathedral they were buried in, and nd the Monte Carlo Casino (ho humm....just another casino that costs €12 to just enter the gambling area although we were permitted to enter the main hall free of charge).

    Finally, to end the day we walked past of the Grand Prix circuit. The race is on next month and all the barricades and grandstands were being erected - crowds of people everywhere - absolute mayhem! Still, it was a good day even though we were very tired at the end.

    Civitavecchia, Italy

    August 19, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Decided not to get off today to catch up on some very much needed sleep. Then in the evening Jackson had the night off! We went to Sindhu for dinner on the ship and then went to see Steve Hewlett a ventriloquist who was on Britain’s Got Talent. We had both seen him perform before but he’s really good.Read more

  • Day213

    Civitavecchia, Italy

    March 31, 2018 in Italy ⋅

    Another day that did not go as planned. Jackson was going to have the day off and then he applied for deck privileges so he has the night off. He however read his schedule wrong and his day off is in 2 days. So I spent the day in bed. He did finish early so we could have gone out but we decided to save our money for when we have the day together in Cartagena. Tonight however we still have the deck privilege where Jackson's bar manager is paying for us to have dinner in Glasshouse.Read more

    Boarding the Ruby Princess

    November 5, 2013 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    We arrived at the airport in Rome about 7:00 AM local time after boarding in Charlotte, and changing airplanes at JFK Airport in New York. Because we could not board the ship, the Ruby Princess, at Civitavecchia, until noon, we had an extended bus tour of the city of Rome. We passed the Baths of Caracalla, and the Colosseum. We passed Vatican City, though we did not go in through the gates. I think Princess was just stalling until they could get our staterooms ready. Then we had to drive north to Civitavehcchia, where our ship was docked. It took quite a while. Even so, at around 4:00 pm our rooms were ready and we boarded the ship with no problems. The Ruby Princess is a lovely vessel, somewhat larger than the Coral Princess, on which we sailed through Alaska. At dinner Glenda and I were the only ones at a table for eight.Read more

    August 14, 2017 in Italy ⋅

    What a beautiful little place, known for the port and where all the cruise ships dock,. Lots of markets, the fresh produce is unbelievable, market after market and they are packed. Beaches are pebbles but pretty. Lots of cafes and restaurants and the whole town comes alive after dark.
