Well, we’ve been rockin’ and rollin’!! I’m talking about the weather, but it would be easy to do onboard – there’s lots of entertainment. Yesterday there was a live show in the Cabaret and today a first-run movie, “The Hurt Locker,” will be shown.
Online ordering of breakfast ended up being distastrous, as there was a problem with the system and our order wasn’t received; but to apologize for that, the restaurant manager had sparkling wine and sweets waiting for us when we returned from our shore excursion.
Our shore excursion today was wonderful! From the port at Naples, we were bused to Sorrento, where we were shown a demonstration of inlaid wood artwork. From there, we were driven to have lunch. We expected that to be something fast and minimal, but in fact we were greeted with Prosecco, a sparkling wine, and had cannelloni, chicken, potatoes, grilled vegetables, and lemon cake, complemented with wine.
Our next stop was a cameo factory in Pompeii and then a tour of the ruins at Pompeii. It is an amazing place, so filled with artifacts and history; and our tour guide Daniela was very informative. This may be where the commonly-used phrase “older than dirt” originated!
So… how do we rate our trip so far? A, no doubt!! Service, food, tour… this is indeed a trip of a lifetime! What’s next? We actually aren’t sure. We were supposed to go to the Isle of Capri tomorrow, but the rough seas have caused the hydrofoil and ferries to be canceled for another day. So tomorrow remains a question mark. I’m willing to bet it will great, though!
