For all of you who have asked, and even if you haven't asked, here are some pix of our cruise
We boarded the ship in Barcelona on May 31, June 1 we were at sea all day.
June 2, we arrived in Malta in the morning and went ashore.
We took a boat tour of the harbors of Malta.
That night we cruised to Naples and the next day we did a tour of Pompeii. That is Mt. Vesuvius you can see through the doorway.
Archaeologists continue to excavate and uncover bodies preserved in ash.
We returned to the ship and cruised that night and awoke to a new day in Rome. This was our marathon day! We took a 90 minute train into Rome and hurried to the Vatican Museum before the lines got too large (sorry but we couldn't take pictures of the famous Sistine Chapel!). Then over to a line to get into St. Peter's Basilica, the largest cathedral in the world.
Outdoors to the taxi stand and we took a cab to the Pantheon, over to Trevi Fountain (on Daysa's list of must sees),
a slice of pizza on a side street in a local eatery, walked to Capital Hill, the Forum,
and lastly to the Coliseum. Whew! What a day! The pictures are in order of the day.
It was on a train to Rome where we ran into some missionaries. It was like seeing someone from home.
And I'll post more later with the rest of the trip. I've spent enough time on this today. I've GOTTA get my house cleaned after a week at Girls Camp.
