Aboard HALcruises: Fun Onboard Activities and Sights

Of course all kinds of things are to be seen and done while in port, but I also wanted to share just how amazing the ship is.If you remember that I accidentally bought 2 romance packages, one of the gifts was dinner for 2 at the Pinnacle Grill.  I think it was one of only two restaurants on board that you had to pay for food.  We made our reservation and went to dinner shortly after we left port in Corfu.  Our next stop is Argostoli, Greece, but first, our romantic dinner. ...more

Kerkira, Corfu, Greece

The second part of our day in Corfu was a treat.  After the visit to the Palace, we boarded the bus and headed to a Greek woman's villa for a home made greek lunch and a swim in her pool if you wished.  ...more

Sisi's Palace Achillieon in Corfu, Greece

Visiting Venice by Cruise Ship

On Saturday night, we noticed a breakfast menu on the bed, one of those things  you can hang outside of your door and they pick it up for you and bring your breakfast at the specified time.  I decided this would be the best way to wake up, and we'd get some nourishment into ourselves before hitting the shore.  Neither of us are breakfast eaters but we needed to store energy for the excursions. ...more
Wonderful account of the trip and pictures are divine to see.  I am still reading more and ...more

The Scribbler et al

Oh, I love fun things! And look what I found today! For FREE! I was watching "TED Talks: Smart Laughs" on NetFlix this afternoon. One of the speakers was Ze Frank, who is a genius at comedy and software programming. He had a terrific presentation, "Ze Frank's Web Playroom"  In addition, he is wacky and comes up with the FUNNIEST stuff. If you have time to spare, or need a break when you don't, try his web site out for size....more
