    On the boat, they have a bar that is 14 floors above the ocean with a 360 degree view. We had a cocktail up there around midnight and listen to some live music

    The next day was Naples.
    This was our last stop
    Not much to do there in town so we took a SLOW train to Serrano
    It took 90 minutes to get there
    So we only had about 3 hours to spend there before we had to head back

    Now I have seen everything.......a pizza making and baking machine
    Only in Italy
    I bet it breaks down every week
    Is expensive to maintain
    And will rust away in 3 years
    But naturally, it's a fast.......zero to pizza in 3.5 minutes

    LOL

    This place was on the Amalfi Coast.
    Some of the best views in all Italy I hear.
    So I expected the beaches to be really nice.
    I made fun of the beaches in Europe before and this why....
    We get there and most of the beaches are private.
    It costs 8 euro to just to get in. And then another 6 if you want a chair. And you need a chair because the beach is made out of little rocks or there is no beach at all and you have to sit on a wood deck.
    We found the "free" beach but it was packed with people.
    We made room by building a little sea wall out of rocks and sand to protect us from the incoming waves.
    And the water was cold.
    I am determined to find a beach here that I can rave about

    How to have dinner with the captain.


    The captain has dinner one night with only the most special guests.
    I am not sure how one gets selected to dine with the captain but one time I got selected a few years back. I am thinking it was because they asked me how many times I sailed with their cruise line and I answered 50+.
    And when a 30 something year old showed up to dinner, they knew they had been had, but it was too late.

    This time Kathe filled out the form before I had a chance to answer the question. So some other old farts got to eat with the captain

    I was the oldest one out there and Kathe was runner up

    Our last day on the ship was spent at sea. So we spent our time exploring the ship.

    We did some mini golf instead.
    I think Kathe is the worst golfer I have ever seen!!!
    But she looked good in her mini skirt and she got better at the end
