We had another day at sea as we traveled from Athens to Naples.  The ship is really lovely and I haven’t taken pictures of the food since it would get to the point of being ridiculous.  The presentation was always beautiful and the food delicious. I have added a picture of our table mates who were enjoyable company each evening. There is also a lot of maritime traffic so it is pretty at night to see the other ships all lit up.  We booked a tour for Pompei after I spoke to an Irish couple who said it is a must see.  Our tour didn’t begin until 1:30 so we had plenty of time before we left the ship.  However, we explored the port.  We got off and went to the terminal and surrounding area.  There was the usual tourists shops so we just browsed. We then got ready and boarded our bus for the tour.  Pompei  is impressive!  I was so fascinated I couldn’t stop taking pictures.  I’ll only share some with you as I must have taken over 100.  We were due to sail at 5:45 but didn’t get back to the ship until 6;00.  When we were all on board – up went the gangway and we were on our way to Rome.’
