Thanks so much for thinking of us May 5ers....I'm hoping we get some of the great weather you have had. Enjoy the rest of your cruise, may the next few days go by really sloooooooowly (I don't mind, I have tons of packing and things to do before I'm ready to board!!)
I thought the Blue Grotto was a very good value and a lovely tour...I would do it again!

Just to let you all know, my brilliant "cut and paste" plan is not going to work...because I am unable to "cut" on these Disney computers .

So...I will give you little tips here and there, but not a full report, until I get back. Sorry May 5th cruisers!

It has been amazing...tonight is our last night onboard, and it was sad to say goodbye to everyone...Grisell, Trevis, Shaka, Pio, Dobi...all of our favorite people onboard! Tomorrow we have a pretty horrid day ahead...Debarking at 6 AM for the first bus to the airport, and a 10:25 AM flight.

One more tip...NO ONE speaks English in Corsica, so be prepared for that. In Villefranche you will meet people that speak a bit of English but not in Corsica...even those around the pier set up with tour booths can't speak English. Also, waiters in Corsica can touch your bread before they give it to you, just a heads up.

Today we had Palo brunch and had some excitement...The weather was CRAZY today, huge waves, and a crane came a bit loose and looked nearer an nearer to breaking the windows at Palo right near our booth. They finally moved us when they realized that it was getting too close for comfort and a bunch of officers went out in the gale and tied the thing down. I spent most of my last day sleeping because it was psychotic, you couldn't walk anywhere and most activies were cancelled, we heard SO MANY plates and things crashing, including a housekeeping cart when it tumbled over. So many plates broke that they brought more in from the crew dining room. It was wild! A lot of sick people today. The crew said it was the worst tossing since the 2007 TA crossing. I was just thankful it was today and not on one of our other days...we had rain in Corsica, but not too hard..a bit in Naples but it just cooled off Pompeii and made Amalfi neater to experience if that is even possible, and a bit of rain towards the end in Villefranche when we were in Eze.

Oh, and another tip...between Saint Paul and Eze, Saint Paul WINS....they are both cool, but if you have to pick between one, pick Saint Paul. I could have stayed there half a day, an hour wasn't long enough!

And anyone with Revelation tours in Villefranche...Michele was AMAZING, we loved him, and the group that had another guide in his company felt the same way about their guide!

I'll update soon after I get home and include pics so those that are traveling later in May should get some good information, I tried to be very detailed.

Bye, bye, Mickey

We are back, and woke up at 5 AM, feeling like it was noon.

So, yesterday was the single most "interesting" flying day I've ever experienced. It was like everyone had just been let out of a cage (or a mental institution) and went totally beserk. Between the crabby elderly bullies behind me yelling at us for putting our seat backs back (even though their own were back too) the whole 9 hours and telling me to shut up when I tried to explain I couldn't just put the seat back "a little instead of all the way", requiring me to involve the flight attendents who looked completely shocked that these people were harrassing us in such a manor.

Then, on the flight from Philly to STL, there was a guy who at first glance didn't appear to be a nut, but spent over 2 hours clicking glass beads together. Loudly. The WHOLE flight. Then, when it was my turn to get out of the seat, when I reached up to get my bag from above he said "c'mon c'mon c'mon" pretty aggressively. At that point my husband stood up and got in his face and said "back off, do not talk to my wife like that" and kind of with his body made the guy back off since he was nearly on top of me. I said to the guy (keep in mind I am NOT a rude or aggressive person, I have a smile on my face most of the time) "you are the most annoying man I've ever seen. You just spent 2 hours annoying the hell out of everyone on this airplane with your freaking beads." He said "oh, is that right?" and I said "yes, what else do you do with those beads, Jacka*s?" And walked off. Later at baggage claim he was still twirling and clicking the beads. Seriously, what the heck? All the crazies were out in full force. Those were just the two most agressive incidents, they were many more, including those folks who decided to do stretching exercises with their heads in front of the television screen and their rear ends sticking out. I said "those folks" because there were SEVERAL of them, completely obvlious to the fact that instead of watching "two and a half men" on the screen, we were all watching their backsides stretch. All day, my favorite phrase was "are you kidding me?". Just completely oblivious. I told my husband if he ever gets that annoying, I will tell him, and he must promise me the same

For those of you that requested my booklet, I advise not using cardstock for the whole thing, it will make it too thick. Use cardstock just for the front page, maybe some route maps, and the back page if you wish, but I recommend using regular paper for the middle pages.

Enjoyed reading! Thanks!

Any chance you know Shaka's upcoming work schedule? We've got something for him and hope he's on in November. He's great, isn't he? Funny thing is, he's never been our room host - got to know him when next door to his section.

No, I don't, but I gave him my email address and asked him to email me, apparently he collects coins and I wanted to give him some from Egypt so if he emails me, I'll find out!

Oh boy...I am a noise freak! I would have grabbed those beads 10 minutes into the flight! I will probably have someone who will snap gum for 6 hours next to me...that will be my luck. Those beads would have drove me bananas Some people can be so rude. Glad you got home safely and had a great trip
