After Israel we made a stop in Cyprus. We did get off the ship and went to the beach that day, but none of us took any pictures. Weird. I guess we just needed a down day and lazed on the beach. I think it was about at this point (halfway through the cruise) that we realized our port hole opened. :) I think these pics below were taken while docked in Cyprus, so you could say we did take a few pics.
Oh, and we watched the tugboat take us out of port in Cyprus, so here's another pic. Lucky that line didn't snap, hey? I would've been sawed in two!
Here are a few pics of our friends we made on the ship. Mark & Hala had their anniversary on the ship. Brent & Mimi were wonderful people as well. All dressed up for formal night and then the last pic is us with our wonderful Trafalgar Tour guides, Jerome and Ryan.Next stop, Antalya, Turkey! We were only here for a few hours and did some shopping and site seeing. Turkey was much more beautiful than I thought it would be.
Then our ship went to Santorini. Since we had already been there, all 3 of us stayed on the ship and enjoyed the empty deck. I had the start of a cold the night before so was glad this was the day to be sick. Slept it off in my room and on the deck.
I was lucky that my cold didn't come full on and I was ready that afternoon for our next stop ... Mykonos! It was SO incredibly windy that we almost didn't get to stop there. We bobbed around for about an hour waiting for them to decide if they should let us tender in. When they decided that yes, we could do it, they made an announcement that said, "Please be extremely, extremely careful getting onto the tender boats as it is dangerously windy." Thanks for the encouragement. Why are we allowed to go if it's that windy? Here were the tiny boats coming to take us to shore.
