Today is the 18th and we need to make our way to the Crown Plaza Hotel past St Peters to catch the bus to the port.  I checked public transportation but it would still be a 6km walk.  We decided to take cab from our hotel. It was a wise decision.  We are now sitting in the lobby and as you can tell there is a much better wifi connection.  Will continue when we are on board.

We boarded the bus provided by the cruise line and headed for the port.  Everything went well.  The ship is beautiful.  We have a balcony room and it is very spacious to me.  Even the bathroom seems large.  We toured the ship, got settled in and then went to dinner.  I had a roasted beet and feta appetizer and Shirley had shrimp cocktail.  Shirley had salmon and I ordered the end cut of prime rib.  They brought me a cow!  As you all know cruise food is great and plentiful.  We are headed to Santorini and have a day at sea tomorrow.  No wifi on board do I’ll send the postings as soon as I can.
