The Aegean Sea Cruise: Departure from Rome
Welcome to The Aegean Sea Cruise: Departure from Rome. After several marvelous days in Rome, we reached our sail away day to begin the fabulous Aegean Sea Cruise. We have an exciting itinerary: Naples, Capri, then onto various ports in Greece, Turkey, Egypt and then back to Rome again. I’ll leave the exact details until they happen.
We spent yesterday enjoying the day in Rome, savoring the time at our hotel, which really was fantastic on every level. (see patio breakfast photo at left). We had a car drive us through the countryside to enjoy the view along to the coast, to Citivecchia, the port of departure for our cruise. Since we are now frequent cruisers, we had “preferred boarding” so we were able to board quickly and with no delays. After unpacking our bags and settling in, we decided to enjoy the ship right away.
First up was a lovely reception with a cheese tasting table, which was a perfect compliment to the champagne.
The sail away party was fairly low key, in that Citivecchia isn’t much of a port. So we went to the Wheelhouse Lounge to partake in a pre-dinner beverage (see photo below).
All in all, a nice relaxing start to the big cruise. Today we’re in Capri, and the weather is supposed to be perfect. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you can follow along as the daily cruise blog begins.
