At Dubai Airport.
I had been let to believe that it was “special”…
I did not think so.
Our flight with Emirates.
In a Boeing 777-300ER
Probably one of my most comfortable flights
The view form our hotel room in Rome.
The Rex might not look like much, but it offers good value for money
We had an economy room…so hence the view(possibly)
but it was only for one night and we did a lot of walking,
meaning that looking out of a window was not a requirement when booking
Rome train station.
Clean and very well run.
If only we had the same service levels!
Our “home” for the next 11 days
And our stateroom.
HUGE and comfortable
We say goodbye to the port of Civitavecchia
Celebrity Reflection has actual lawn on the top deck!
Breakfast of champions?
I would not know as I did not sample them
Making certain that I know where to head in case of an emergency
On board you do this often…
It becomes a habit VERY quickly
Our Captain greets the guests
The only way to get to Santorini is via a tender.
The harbour is too small for large cruise ships to dock
My new favourite town…Istanbul
This is an “outdoor” shower attached to one of the suites.
It can be made opaque at the touch of a button.
Looking back at the bridge as we sail out of Istanbul.
This is the view from the helipad
Bringing the red carpet to the ship in Kusadasi, Turkey
Our first sunrise at sea…
We always use Leon as he is always early and a pleasure to deal with.
