Our Italian Riviera Cruise

In the cab on the way to airport…we’re so excited!


Waiting for our 12 hour flight…
We made it! After a shower and nap, we’re ready to see the ship

My husband was having a hard time taking a serious picture
…maybe I was too…

Our first port…Sicilly!



Our second port…Malta…we had know idea we’d be back a week later…
This is the BEST cruise line ever! It’s Holland America and they’re wonderful!
Out on the deck of our ship before dinner

Now we’re at our 3rd port…Croatia…which was gorgeous too!


Mom and Andrew at dinner

My favorite stop…the island of Capri…GORGEOUS!


Our last port took us to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower…it really does lean A LOT!

We are supposed to be heading home now…but we’re still on the boat for what becomes 2 more days!
Having a blast on our extended trip…
Back in Malta at 1:30 in the morning trying to fly to DFW
We’re so tired but had a great trip!

Andrew, my mom, my dad and I just finished a wonderful Italian Riviera Cruise. It was supposed to last 7 days but due to flight problems, we ended up staying on the ship another 2 days. It was a wonderful 9 days cruising “the boot” of Italy. We visited ports in Sicily, Malta, Croatia, Capri, Livorno and Pisa. These are only a few of the over 300 pictures I took. It was really hard to pick because all of the ports were so beautiful and different, so I tried to grab a couple from each day. We had a fabulous time!!!!!
