Day 5 - Villefranche

Its Villefranche day! Our first port of call and I woke up to this:



We have a tour booked through Disney for Monte Carlo and Monaco leaving at 12.45pm. So we decided to have a leisurely brunch at Lumiere's and head down to the port just to look around and most importantly - to use the INTERNET!
Tawanda came and picked us from our room around 11am and took us straight down to the gangway, he also told us that he will be joining us on the excursion as well!





We went down and had some food (again!), mum went shopping, Sea went to look around with dad and I have life so I decided to just sit at the cafe and use the INTERNET! We regrouped and headed for our excursion at 12.45.













When we got back to the boat, me and Sea had to run as Junnk was on for the night's show and we got back at 6.30pm, on the second last tender boat so we went straight to the WDT despite how much we wanted a shower!



After the show, we went back to our room and got ready for dinner at Animator's Palate!



Then I went to college club then joined my sister for a late night Mary Poppins by the pool session!

That's it for today! Next up, La Spezia!

Here's the customary group picture before we leave - the same one posted earlier.

These are from our flight from Bangkok to Istanbul.


That's me!


My sister, being (mildly) goofy...


And my mum, who always seem to be emailing people from work...Relax mum, your on vacation!

Sorry for the lack of photos, we didn't really take that much after that flight since its really early at Istanbul and we wanted sleep!


The plane taking us to Barcelona! 4 hours later.


My mum being awesome as usual!

We arrived around 11.30am, we came out from baggage claim but can't find our driver booked through sunstransfers I started panicing after we looked around and still can't find him. So after calling and waiting for around 30 minutes he finally turned up mum and dad was not happy .

We spent the rest of the afternoon checking in the hotel and walking around while my mum got up to some shopping.
Is this what first class while flying looks like? WOW! It looks comfortable!

Day 6 - La Spezia!

The plan today for me and my sister is that we take it easy and stay around port as we didn't fancy joining the parents on a 2 1/2 hour bus ride to Florence and back! My parents left at around 7.30 for their bus, while me and Sea woke up later and had a casual breakfast at topsiders then made our way off the ship at around 11am to La Spezia.





We needed to take a shuttle bus from the ship's dock to the port entrance where they dropped us off at the visitor's center.



Then we took a stroll into town and found a cafe with internet to use, had some caprese (Tomatoes and mozerella cheese, which Sea actually liked) then walked around some more.















We then headed back to the boat for a the afternoon where we had a dip, some character hunting and just relaxed, until tonight's show - The dream goes on.







Then it was dinner and off to bed, for the big day tomorrow- Rome!

Sorry for the delay! Too much work in uni...its all done now so here's the next installment!

Day 7 - Rome day!

Rome day! At last! We booked a private car tour through "romeinlimo" for the day. We planned to visit (in order) the Vatican, Colosseum, Trevi, then do some shopping and walking around.

I woke up to this:

Well, its not much of a view...but enough to get me and Sea excited for the day!

and then this:

Checkout the Norwegian Epic! - Awesome, but not as awesome as the Magic!

Mum and Dad went to breakfast as usual while I had a later start to the day, then off we went to Rome!

1st stop: Vatican City















We then made our way to the Colosseum, stopping for a picture of this:



and this



Then the Colosseum:













Then we decided to stop for lunch as everyone was feeling the heat, and also since I hadn't had breakfast...



Fuelled up with food and energy, Mum was ready to go shopping but Me and Sea demanded a stop at the Trevi first!



It started to rain! Oh no!



We then went shopping and back to the boat (didn't take photos after this as it was raining and we were in shops anyways)

Back at the boat, we had a bit of a rest before going to watch the show, Villains tonight! Where unfortunately, the computers decided to crash halfway through ( just after "Be prepared", and so they had to cancel it



We then went to dinner, I went to the college meet up after that, and then just hung about with my sister until the pool closed.

I have to say, your family is the absolute cutest family I've ever seen!! thanks for sharing your trip... I'm considering a Med cruise, so this is helping me decide. I like how laid back you are about touring - that's what my family needs. Looking forward to more

Day 8 - Naples + Pirates!

Pompeii day at last! This is one place we've always wanted to visit.
We also booked a private tour for today through APtours as it was very cheap compared to the Disney ones. To do list for today is as follows; Pompeii, Herculaneum and Pizza!
I'll let the picture do the talking for now then.

Here's the pics of Pompeii:















Then its off to the Herculaneum!













In my point of view, Pompeii and the Herculaneum were very different altogether, the Herculaneum was a lot smaller in size (can do in a few hours) than Pompeii, but the Herculaneum was just a village whereas Pompeii was a huge city, the ruins were very different, and the Herculaneum was really well preserved as it was buried by the ashes, not destroyed by rocks.

After the ruins, we went into town to have pizza in the city where it was created, and it was delicious! We then called it a day and when back to the Magic and look who we met!


Stitch!

We then got cleaned up for pirate night and messed around a little.



Then dinnertime!




Adrian our lovely server has requested for the chef to cook us some Thai food tonight! It was actually really good!

Then fireworks time!







Me and Sea went off goofing around afterwards and I met up with the college crew, then finally called it a day (or night!)

Next up our final day at sea!
