Afternoon in Civitavecchia

The port of Civitavecchia is a large one and requires a shuttle to get from the ship into town. We took the five minute ride to the end of the port area to walk along the boardwalk. When we were here previously, our driver Mike from Rome in Limo pointed out the statue of the iconic picture of the sailor kissing the girl. I had forgotten it was in Civitavecchia until I saw another DISBoarder post a photo of it on her Facebook page, so of course I had to go get my own. I'm glad we went because it was a beautiful afternoon and there are plenty of places to just sit, relax, and enjoy the view.

Back on board, I was hanging out on Deck 4 starboard when one of the cast members came out the side door of the Animator's Palate galley, and he let me take a picture. They have two windows where you can peek into the cold kitchen which is pretty cool to see salads and appetizers all laid out and ready to go.


  1. I've enjoyed living vicariously through your entertaining travel journal and the wonderful photos. It seems to be as amazing of a voyage as you had hoped. Yay!

    1. It really has been and I am so grateful to have been able to take this much time off.
