We are on our Mediterranean cruise. Yesterday we left at about 5:45 am. We had Zac drive us to the airport. While waiting in the security line at the airport, we met a couple of sisters who were going on the same tour group. Our flight to Atlanta left at 8:30 am. I slept a little in the flight, but not much. We were in Atlanta for about 2 hours and we ate lunch at McDonalds. Our next flight was to Rome and we left just before 4:00 pm. The flight from Atlanta to Rome was about 9 hours. I did not sleep at all. We arrived in Rome at 7:30 am. Eva and I got our bags and waited for the rest of the tour group. We were the first ones to arrive in Rome. We waited from 7:30 am until about 12:30 pm. Most of that time was standing and waiting. There was a problem getting the buses to the airport, so they were late. We took the bus to the cruise ship terminal to board the ship.
Once we were on the cruise ship, we unpacked and wandered around the ship. That night they had a reception for the tour group.

Today was a day at sea. After our long day traveling, we slept in quite late. We have not gotten much sleep and since our room is inside we don’t get any light. We ate breakfast and went for a short walk on the deck. After that we sat in the hot tub for a while. I didn’t eat lunch but Eva had something. Later we went to a presentation on Egypt in the main theater and then sat in a lounge and read books.
Later that night we got dressed up and went to dinner. We got a great table w by the window so we could see the sea as the sun went down. After dinner we changed and went to the main shows in the theater.
