Mediterranean Cruise 2007
Last post had us in Rome. So much happened while we were there, I did not get a chance to write anymore. We went on the Carnival Freedom with nearly 600 clients! The ship was just launched in March of this year, and is HUGE! Even with so many passengers, there are still places to be quiet. Our cruise took us from Rome to Naples, Dubrovnik, Venice, Messina, Barcelona, Cannes, Livorno and back to Rome (the port of Civitavechia). It was a worldwind vacation, but definately worth it! There was so much to see and so many cappucinos to drink and gelato (Italian ice cream) flavors to try! Dubrovnik was the surprise gem of the trip. In the walled old part of the city, the streets are made of white marble!!! The weather on the trip was excellent. Other than a 15 minute downpour in Pompeii, it was sunshine every day. Everyone had a great time and are looking forward to the next time we take them back to Europe. Oh, and did I mention the food?? There didn't seem to be a bad meal to be found anywhere in the ports we visited. Even the ships food was pretty good!
