The Mediterranean Cruise - Part 3 - Civitavecchia-Genoa

Long time no see...

I am terribly sorry about the fact, that i have not been able to update this blog as often as i would have wanted to. It is just that all the big things in life seem to come in groups rather than one at a time. I will however try to find the time to write posts as often as i can. I intent not to let this blog wither away...

Anyway, now to the point.

On our lovely Mediterranean cruise, we strated our way from Civitavecchia towards the beautiful city of Genoa in Italy.

Genoa is, as i said, a beautiful city full of history and bustling with life. It is an interesting mix of historical beauty and modern day Italy. The city offers something for everyone, no matter if you should be looking for tours in old churches, long walks by the bautiful Mediterranenan seaside or some quality shopping. It is all there.

After spending the day in Genoa, we heade back for our ship, had a little afternoons rest and prepared for the entertainment in the evening.

Onboard, we enjoyed a full 5 courses dinner and some fine beverages while watching the ship leave the port of Genoa. As the evening grew darker outside, we finished our dinner and headed to the theater onboard to listen to some classical music in honor of the late tenor Luciano Pavarotti.

Afterwards, it was time for the last drinks of the evening and, ofcourse, the cigar of the day. I headed to the Ambassador Cigar Lounge and lit up an Ashton VSG Corona Gorda. A good cigar which could be a bit more complex thou. Half bodied, somewhat sweet in aroma, a little too easy to turn sour on you. Anyways, I enjoyed it a lot, and after that, tried to catch some sleep before seeing yet another beautiful city along our journey...
