Bill & Bonnie's Mediterranean Cruise
September 21 ~ October 2, 2017

Bonnie and I decided to take a European cruise together.  We booked with the Norwegian Cruise Line and traveled around the western Mediterranean in a counter-clockwise direction starting from Rome, Italy.  There were a LOT of people touring the same locations we visited.  Because of this, taking pictures of the sights without people appearing in the photograph was impossible, but we did the best we could.  Our itinerary was as follows:

Sep. 21
Sep. 22 
Sep. 23
Sep. 24
Sep. 25
Sep. 26 
Sep. 27
Sep. 28
Sep. 29
Sep. 30
Oct. 1-3

We sailed on Norwegian Cruise Line's ship, Spirit.  If you'd like to read more about the Norwegian Cruise Line, their trips, or the Spirit, click here.  Note that the 300 pictures that have been saved and displayed on these pages we consider to be the best of the 496 pictures taken during the cruise!  Also note that we try to keep comments on our web pages to a minimum, letting the pictures speak for themselves.  Click on any of the following links to see more photos:

The following pictures were all taken in and around the ship, mostly from the Roman (Civitavecchia) port:

Every evening when we returned from dinner, we found a new "towel animal" on our bed, similar to this one.
