Tag Archive 'Oceana 2018 cruise'

Valletta from Oceana’s mooring, departure morning I did an earlier post on my initial thoughts about Oceana during the cruise, but as promised this is a summing-up of my opinions. Essentially, it’s a continuation of what I said in the earlier post – we liked the ship, or at least we found the bits of […]

  And at last we’ve reached the pictures from the final port of call, Messina. This was a last-minute port after the call at Dubrovnik had to be cancelled due to bad weather. Here’s a link to the post covering what we did there, but basically we just went ashore and wandered around. Actually, we […]

It rained when we were in Zadar – a lot; and this was about the only picture I took, and was definitely the best. Enjoy.

Here’s the next batch of images, this time from Split. This wasn’t a very satisfying day. We did an excursion in the morning, to Trogir and then to Split, and for all sorts of reasons we didn’t enjoy it much. We didn’t have enough free-time in Trogir for one thing. Then when we got to […]

A day in Messina

Today (Wednesday) we’ve been in Messina. As I mentioned a few posts ago, this was put into the itinerary at very short notice to replace the call in Dubrovnik which had to be cancelled. Messina is a considerably-sized city of about 250,000 (in the urban area itself) and is a busy commercial and administrative centre. […]

A Sea Day

Yesterday (Tuesday) was an unexpected sea day. We should have been at Dubrovnik but as previously posted the captain decided that it wasn’t safe to dock there for reasons to do with the weather. Instead we spent the day at sea. We just had a lazy day. In fact we got up shortly before 8 […]
