What time did you guys get off the ship? When we left on our Port Adventure, there were girls, just before you got inside the terminal, in white flowing robes handing us olive branches. I stuck that in my hat (did not call it macaroni) and wore it all day. LOL

A party of 12 for Athens and Cape Sounion AND a guide all day is $580E. Entrance fees and lunch is not included with this price.

I was curious about if there was to be any fanfare to our arrival in Athens, but other than the welcome sign, there was not.

Holy cow. Completely forgot about that!! Thanks...will go back and correct that!! I didn't get a picture and didn't take the leaves myself, so I'd put it out of my mind.

You should post that sunrise picture of Athens you took. It's awesome!!

Malta ... if you eat at one of the port terminal restaurants, you can use their wifi.

Paraeus is supposed to have wifi but I could never connect.

Mykonos... if you eat at one of the restaurants, you can use their wifi.

Unlike the med cruise we took 2 years ago, I found it incredibly "frustrating" that I couldn't find a decent wifi or even a bad wifi at most of the ports. "Free" wifi meant buying something at a cafe or restaurant or entering a cell phone number and or a lot of information before you could use it... Even the Starbucks in Athens ... I had to buy something to get the password to the wifi. (I did buy something but ironically, I didn't stay long enough to use it.) LOL

Free WIFI @ VF@their cruise terminal.
LaSpezia restaurants, but we love eating so it was no problem.
Civitavecchia...tapped into the free WIFI @McDs across from the cruise terminal entrance.
Athens you need to go to the lobby of Terminal A 10 mins away.
Kusadasi we loved the terminal restaurant and got WIFI.
Too busy in Mykonos but the delicious restaurants all had Wifi.
Malta's city centre had it. It was free.

Early am photo shoot with Pixelbarrel arranged for this day. I've admired her pics for a while and cannot wait to meet her in person !

Spa appointments and an alcohol tasting today as well (wine??).

Suggested dinner attire: Cruise Casual
Menu: Bella Italia

There was no sleeping in this sea day! Pxlbarrel had declared that the photo meet would occur at 15 minutes prior to the posted sunrise time. That time....was 5:53am. Ouch. Alarm set for 5:30 and clothing set out so that I could do photos then hit the gym. I seriously considered ignoring that alarm.....but I did not and was rewarded with a lovely sunrise!!


The ship just before sunrise:





There were 4 or 5 of us hearty souls out there! We had a nice time and I really enjoyed the fact that it was daybreak, outside, and I wasn't freezing! I'm sitting here typing this and my fingers are cold, I'm wearing socks, and have a sweatshirt on .

I headed to the gym and locked up my camera, then got in a nice workout. By this time, I wanted a cup of coffee and headed to Cove Cafe, got both DH and I cups and headed back to the room, figuring that he'd be up by then. Not so much. So I grabbed my book and went to deck 4 to read for a while. Now THAT was a decadent luxury!! Coffee done and it was approaching 9am. Time to route the fam out of bed. They were actually up by then, and DD once again persuaded me to get her breakfast. Specifically, apple juice and a donut. LOL!!

Both Sean and I had hot stone massages set for this day. I love hot stones! As my daughter says; "pats on the back and rocks that are hot". Works for me! Mine was first, and I enjoyed every minute!! When done, I had time to kill and after sunscreening up, I hit the pool deck for some sun. DD was there, so I could interact with her a bit. DH's massage was about 2-ish, as we had Mixology afterward. That's why he got the later appointment...he can shower faster!

Mixology...was awesome! Mindy had pre-arranged tastings shoreside so that we'd be our own group. There was a 40-person cap on the groups. If you drink alcohol, this is worth doing. I'm more of a wine drinker but still enjoyed our experience. I think there were 5 drinks we tried in all. They'd ask questions and people with correct responses would get to go up and try their hand at making a specific beverage. DH walked in late and answered that the glass was empty to the bartender's question and got to make a Bahama Mama. Mindy got to make something but don't remember what. My dad went with us and sat back looking very relaxed:



See Mindy behind the bottles??




After the tasting, several of us headed to the not-so-secret aft deck on 7. We collectively brought wine, cava, cheese, and bread, and just hung out and talked! We had such a nice time in a quiet location getting to know more about our new friends. We discovered that it really is a small world after all! In fact, we were there so long that we completely missed the show that evening. This was the "relaxing" part of the vacation!!

Not much to add to Kim's posting...my day was pretty much the same...got up late, went for walk on deck 4 and actually hooked up with some new friends and chatted (made walk go much faster. Then I did some pool time until about 2.

Here's some more pictures from our Deck 7 get together -


After dinner, Jim and I went to Rockin' Bar D to see the Paul Zerdin (ventriloquist) adult show. It was so crowded we ended up in Diversions watching it on a screen.

I was curious about if there was to be any fanfare to our arrival in Athens....we were greeted by toga-wearing citizens handing out olive branches. I did not, however, get a picture of them. Thank you pxlbarrel for reminding me of this!! We saw this sign, though:



We departed the ship and walked thru the port building and looked for our welcome sign. We were met by the owner, who initially was scheduled to be with us, but due to something or other, he greeted us and introduced up to our crew. Yeah...should have written down their names, but I'm willing to bet Mindy has them . Each of us were given a little bag with a small tour book and postcards in them! I don't have pics of them at the moment, but will do so. It was a nice touch! Our crew of 12 boarded the tour bus and we were off. The port of Piraeus is nothing to write home about, but we got from there to the Acropolis area in 20-30 minutes. It was very strange (to me) that something so iconic and historical as the Acropolis was accessible in such a high density neighborhood. I guess Rome is very much that was as well, but it didn't seem quite the same.



We started out by walking around the Museum area. None of us were really into going inside, though I've heard that it was pretty amazing! The glass flooring on the outside of the building allowed us to see some excavated areas:



As you turn away from facing the museum, you see the magnitude of the Acropolis and the sheer height we were about to go up.



The walk wasn't bad, but I can imagine that my poor dad was looking at it in dismay. But up we went, with our guide telling us in detail about what we were seeing. This was the best part....it wouldn't have meant as much (to me) without the narrative! It turns out that she was an Athens native. She opted to take us up the opposite (back? less traveled?) side...her rationale was that it was less crowded. She was right. By the time we got to the top and headed toward the other side to head down it was very, very crowded. It was hot that day, but it was a dry heat and there was quite a breeze. At the top by the flag there was an outpost that you could go up to to over look the city, and it was almost too windy for me to stand up there. I didn't have a hairband, either, to ponytail up the hair. I was very cool to look down on the city, especially later when we went down to the temple of Zeus and took pictures looking up to mirror the ones I took looking down. Hadrian's Gate is right there by the Temple of Zeus,







Looking toward the Temple of Zeus:

Looking back up from the Temple of Zeus:



Temple of Zeus:
Our Guide's name was Athanasia (I got the correct spelling from Frank when he thanked me for the Trip Advisor review) and our driver's name was George. In the gift bag's that Frank gave us there were 3 different books. I was lucky enough to get all three. Some more pics:

After the ceremony and the guard change, the escort ensures that their uniform is in the correct spot and whatnot, and answers the questions the crowd may have as the guards are not allowed to speak for an hour. They will make some sort of movement or click of the heels if a tourist gets too close, tho. You can take pictures with them but cannot get too close. We ran into the owner again at this stop and he came over to ensure we were enjoying our tour....



From here we were off to the Olympic Stadium. You can pay a fee and work out here. While we were there, there was a male gymnast doing cool handstand poses for pictures. It was neat to watch.

High noon is a good guess, but it was 11 a.m. (remember she was afraid we were going to miss it because it was like 10:45 when we got back on the bus.)
The guards were neat. They were actually there guarding the tomb of the unknown soldier. The ceremony of it all was amazing. Jim took very quick successive photographs that actually look really neat. Have more to add but will need to do it later....

The name of the restaurant was Xaxos and the food was really good. We opted to get the gyros in the pita as opposed to the flatbread, so lunch was good and pretty cheap as well

When we got there, there was a cafe/gift shop area convenient for a bathroom stop prior to climbing up to the Temple. Dad opted to not go up. He did really well eariler, so I wasn't surprised he was done. I want to say it was a $4E entrance fee per adult. At the top, the views of the surrounding Greek islands were amazing. It was just really, really windy. We headed down and had time for a snack or drink if needed before heading back to the van for the ride back to Athens.



I'm pretty sure there was some snoozing going on. Upon arrival at the port, we were walking back to the ship and I looked over at a building that looked suspiciously like a fire station. I pointed it out to DH and he grabbed a patch from the camera bag and headed over there. DD and went back to the ship, but it turns out that it was a fire station and they did a patch exchange....in fact, one of the firefighters DH talked to just ripped his off his shirt (velcroed on...). It's neat to see that some traditions are universal! They had a patch wall and DH tells me that this one and the one pxlbarrel brought him are already on his patch wall at work. Very, very cool!!

DD headed to find her friends and I went for a workout. The hair was trashed, I probably smelled, and a shower was in my future, so I figured I could do a nice run in the air conditioning then get in a good stretch before a nice cool shower before dinner. The bad news was that I missed the show . BUT....there was a deck party that evening at 5:30-ish!! We were left paper "crowns" to wear at the party in our rooms:
When we got back, kids went off and running. Jim and I went to Cove to relax and for a drink. Then down to shower before Greece party. It as fun as this was the party that we had watched them rehearse a few nights before.

OK - here's where I need to disagree - the menu was disappointing to say the least. The spanakopita tasted funny, the mousakka was like a deconstructed mixed vegetables with a scoop of tomato sauce. It was one of the worst meals I had on board. I didn't even stay to have dessert, which for me is saying a lot.

I had the spanakopita too and although it tasted a bit different than what I'm used to, I attributed it to perhaps a different kind of cheese than I'm used to.

I had the chicken kabob (pseudo souvlaki) and they were fine as was the baklava. I stayed with the simple stuff. LOL None of the other stuff really appealed to me. I think we also had the salad ...

It's not like I said it was good. Just blah.

Nutmeg. I think the spanakopita had nutmeg in the spinach. Whatever it was that I'd ordered was supposed to have a side of spinach, and after trying the appetizer portion of whatever it was, I wisely asked if the spinach would be the same kind/batch. It was...so none for me.

I promise to get to Kusadasi soon...but to do justice to it requires quite a bit of dialogue.....

My weekend flew by on wings of errands, laundry , housework, and food prep for lunches this week. Add to that a bit of peer pressure to take the kids to the beach...

I wanted to add in that I believe it was the Athens day in which a shadowbox of an Acropolis with Goofy in front was left in our rooms for us. Too bad the glass broke on the flight home . I need to find somewhere to get it fixed as the size is irregular.

I wanted to add in that I believe it was the Athens day in which a shadowbox of an Acropolis with Goofy in front was left in our rooms for us. Too bad the glass broke on the flight home . I need to find somewhere to get it fixed as the size is irregular.
Your glass broke too???? My dad fixed mine for me. He found a framing place and got the glass replaced for $5. Unfortunately, the top part which looks like corrugated plexiglass is cracked. Nobody will see that but I was positively heartbroken when I excitedly took it out of the box to show my parents what Disney had given us...only to see it damaged.
