Many thanks to those of you who have commented on our Blog. This includes: Greg, Emily, Jo, Jim, Gill, Gail, Muriel Dave, Lynn & Buddy, and Candy along with so many of you who have sent us similar well wishes via e-mail, texts and messages. We so appreciate all of you.
We have been asked by more than one of you how could there possibly be seven first time ports of call for us when we have sailed to much of the world. We found the same to be the case when sailing the Mediterranean on three seven day back-to-back cruises on Crystal Serenity in September/October of 2018 right before Serenity went into dry-dock. While we have sailed the Mediterranean and the British Isles numerous times, this itinerary offers stops as did the on in 2018 to not only ports that are often on itineraries of this region but to some other ports of call.
While we keep a listing of ports of call previously visited we created the listing several years after we started cruising. While the information from previous blogs and cruise programs helped us create this listing, we may have overlooked some ports or might not have identified each one. These are the ports we believe are first time ports for us even though we may have driven past some of them or even stopped at some on previous tours. They are: Cannes, Cali, Ibiza, Cartagena, Portomao and Ferrol.
We wanted to take this opportunity to mention that we do not have time to reread what we write for this blog so you will notice spelling and grammar mistakes and other mistakes.
Thank you to those of you who will be traveling along with us virtually along with those of you who will be on one or both of these sailings with us.
Bags are packed. Ready to go. Can't wait.
