  • NotoSaturday 10 June 2017 This morning we enjoyed our first croissant (cornetti) of this entire trip! They don't seem to have been available at any of the campsites that we've stayed at - too early in the season, maybe? They Posted by alvenables in The Italian Job - South | Jun 10, 2017
  • In the shadow of EtnaConnie's next port of call is Messina in Sicily. Having never been here before we are keen to explore what the largest island in the Mediterranean has to offer. Of course being here on a day trip means we can Posted by Patch64 in Roman Empire Cruise | Sep 11, 2015
  • La Dolce VitaWe wake early. Connie is already anchored off Sorrento. The port here is too small for a ship this size and so we need to tender ashore. We breakfast in the Oceanview. I opt for a low carb brekkie of Posted by Patch64 in Roman Empire Cruise | Sep 10, 2015

  • Castles, Lakes and WineIt seems a lot of people have trouble pronouncing our next port of call. Civitavecchia.

Again as with a lot of these ports it is not Posted by Patch64 in Liberty of the Seas - Western Mediterranean Cruise | Oct 22, 2014
  • The 5 LandsThe port where we dock in La Spezia is nowhere near as glamorous as Villefranche. I open the curtains to a working port full of large ship containers and tall cranes. There is a lot of clanging and banging going Posted by Patch64 in Liberty of the Seas - Western Mediterranean Cruise | Oct 21, 2014
  • Naples and PompeiiAn early start today. I am awake before 6.30am and I feel the ship shudder which normally means she is manourvering into port. I glance out and immediately spot the island of Capri in the distance as Reflection backs into Posted by Patch64 in Celebrity Reflection Cruise 2017 | May 27, 2017
  • MessinaAs we awake Reflection is situated about 5 miles off the sea east coast of the volcanic island of Stromboli. After Etna and Vesuvius she is the third of Italy's three active volcanoes. Today she is shrouded in cloud and Posted by Patch64 in Celebrity Reflection Cruise 2017 | May 19, 2017
  • CivitavecchiaThe night is sultry and warm. The aircon in our room is not very effective and we have a restless nights sleep as a result. Dawn soon creeps through the curtains and we rise and breakfast in the hotel. It's Posted by Patch64 in Celebrity Reflection Cruise 2017 | May 18, 2017
