    Zurück in Tel Aviv

    April 22, Eastern Mediterranean

    Wir waren wieder zurück in Tel Aviv und von den letzten beiden Tagen ein wenig geschafft. Daher ließen wir den Tag ruhig angehen und schliefen erst einmal aus. Nach einem ausgiebigen Frühstück machten wir uns auf den Weg durch die Stadt, wo wir uns noch ein paar neue Ecken anschauten und das entspannte Gefühl dieser Stadt auf uns wirken ließen. Wir gingen durch den Carmel Market und den modernen Einkaufsstraßen bis zum Strand, wo wir die Sonne und den zarten Wind genossen. Wir entspannten uns weiter an der Promenade, an der wir unsere Bücher lasen und ein kleines Nickerchen nahmen. Gegen Abend machten wir uns dann wieder auf den Weg zurück, aßen etwas und gingen dann auch schon zu Bett. Am Ende sind wir doch wieder viel mehr gegangen als geplant. Morgen fahren wir mit den Zug nach Haifa und Akko in den Norden Israels.Read more

    May 4, Eastern Mediterranean

    A quiet day today. Most people go to Olympia - the birthplace of the Olympic Games where they light the Olympic torch before every games, and also the temple of Zeus. As we visited this place several years ago we just stayed in the town of Katakolon and looked through the shops. They had some nice things from unique ceramic pieces, wooden and glass artworks and various sculptures and paintings, as well as the usual assortment of souvenirs.

    Brad practised some artistic shots with his camera while a caught up on my blog, spoke to one of the boys who happened to be online at the time, and checked out some photos of Layla that May sent through. Overall, a relaxing day...a change from yet another 'old town'.

    Pinnacles Lunch

    March 21, 2017, Eastern Mediterranean

    What a special treat that was. As usual Peter arranged something completely different for the last ever pinnacles lunch, on board Legend of the seas.
    Firstly we were issued with commemorative T-shirts, and had a group photo in the centrum, this was followed by an authentic Arabic buffet, prepared by one of the Egyptian chefs. We had this sitting outside on deck in a restricted area of the ship where passengers are not normally allowed, all while sailing down the Suez Canal.
    It was a great meal with some fab wine and the whole experience added to the memorability of this the last cruise of this wonderful old ship. At least it's last cruise as Legend of the seas, as when she transfers to Thomson, she will be refitted and renamed Discovery 2.

    Turkish airlines

    February 27, 2016, Eastern Mediterranean

    Y esta es la comida que nos han servido en el avión con destino a Turquía. La verdad es que estaba muy bueno, sobre todo la mousse de chocolate. Mientras, voy viendo una película de mision imposible que no había visto aún, nación fantasma. Curioso que JJ Abrams continúe con su aportación a la saga. A ver que tal es... La otra foto es de un caramelo, supongo que típico, de pistacho con azúcar que nos dieron antes de la comida. Muy rico también.Read more

    The Quest

    November 11, 2011, Eastern Mediterranean

    We all took part in the Quest last night.
    For those who don't know it's a crazy game show where a lot of drunks do strange things such as men wearing women's underwear etc.
    We won...woo hoo.
    It was a great laugh (at the time) lol.
    It was all filmed and will be shown on the cruise video, so I may regret taking my trousers off and wearing Drena's bra, which she took off at the table.
    Later in the contest one woman from each team had to show the host her bra and as I was wearing Drena's as I said, she promptly lifted her blouse up to show him her bare boob's... As Kenny Everett would of said " It was all in the best possible taste " yeah right..... LOLRead more

    The Lost Day

    November 12, 2011, Eastern Mediterranean

    It all started two day's ago.
    We went to the theatre with John and Drena to see the Rat Pack tribute group.
    Sheila and I had seen them with Ken and Denise on the first leg of the cruise.
    Sheila had ended up on stage with Dean Martin last time and she was adamant she was not getting on stage this time.... Yeah right!
    As soon as he came by her she sprinted past him and was on the stage before him.... Lol... That may be a slight exaggeration but only a slight one.. Lol.
    Anyway the upshot was we saw the guys in the bar on our way to bed and stopped for a quick chat, so Sheila could take in all the adulation from them.
    They were telling her how she made the show that night etc, etc.
    That was the first mistake, the second being staying for a quick drink with them and Simeon, the cruise director, who had joined us by this time.
    The third and on my part the most fatal mistake was me drinking another bottle of red wine.... Hence the title The Lost Day.
    I did spend the next day and night in the cabin recovering...... But I'm fine now so onward and upward as the bard said (I think he said it) lol

    70s Disco night

    November 15, 2011, Eastern Mediterranean

    Never again.
    Last night was the 70s disco party in the centrum.
    We were all there, Sheila and I, Ken & Denise, John & Drena and Ann.
    All full of free wine, we had a whale of a time.
    I was certain I was John Travolta disco dancing, complete with shirt open to my waist.
    I even caught the Love Train..... God why do we do these things? It seemed a good idea at the time and I'm suffering for it now.... Lol.
    But we all had a great time and that's all that really matters.

    Day 3: Another fun day at sea

    July 22, 2016, Eastern Mediterranean

    After an early bed time plus an extra hour from the time change, Braden woke up to see the sun rise. We were all up relatively early to enjoy the ships activities... Definitely getting used to the cruise life.

    Irgendwo im Mittelmeer

    April 2, 2015, Eastern Mediterranean

    3. Seetag und es geht mit großen Schritten Richtung Land, nämlich Kreta.
    Heute war es weitestgehend bedeckt und nicht ganz so sonnig wie noch im Roten Meer.
    Die Temperaturen waren auch gemäßigter...Muss daran liegen, dass das alles näher an Deutschland ist.
    Na gut, aber bei knapp 20 Grad wollen wir mal noch nicht meckern, gell :-)

    Heute war wieder Chillaxen auf Deck 5 angesagt. Sabrina hat noch bisschen gesportelt, während ich mir brav eine Uhr ausgesucht habe. Heute gab's nämlich 10% auf alle Uhren. Da kann man sparen, damit nen Mojito mehr geht abends :-)

    Sonst war heute nicht so viel los...Morgen ist ja aber Land in Sicht. Nachher geht es noch ne Runde ins Casino, denn die Bordrechnung muss ausgebessert werden.

    Morgen dann Kreta...
