Rhodes is still one of my favourites.
Unable to go to Lindos this time, I was satisfied and delighted to spend the afternoon with my mom wandering the walled city of Rhodes in Greece. We shopped, laughed, tried on clothes, looked at jewellery and people watched. When mom and I are together, these are a few of my favourite things. (Makes me break in to song like Julie Andrews!)
Ov five cruise lines in port today, Celebrity Reflection, Holland Americas ms Noordam and several smaller ships not sold by us in Canada, likely European brands.
We found great prices for linen items, authentic to Greece. We found post cards and stickers for luggage, proud displays of where we have been with this piece of suitcase.
Also stumbled on another Greek designer, tall, young and creative with cottons and linens. Many folk from the cruise line stopped by and commented. Many women came back after seeing nothing to compare with the quality and beauty of her items. I loved being waited on by the hostess and she has such beautiful things. I could have filled a complete suitcase!
My day started with a two hour Seminar at Sea hosted by Azamara and I am so enjoying the special attention and training provided by this brand. Well done and thanks so much for the opportunity!
Tonight is the White Night Deck Party. A Mediterranean buffet and music will be served on the top outside decks for a party atmosphere. I have something white and flowy to wear on deck.
We will join up with some of our new friends from the United States. We have met so many friendly and wonderfully interesting people on this cruise. I love the ten days, it feels like a good length, still wanting more, but ready to go home. I would love to return again next year. I love the small intimate boutique ships and the over the top friendly and efficient staff we have encountered. As well, the free flowing spirits and wine were served on this cruise ship for the first time and I have to say what a treat it has been. Martini, Margarita, regional white wine daily selection and so much more.
Robes, slippers, bottled water, specialty coffees and teas, fresh fruit in our rooms, a veranda and every day being treated like royalty.
I best get ready for the evening festivities.
Love to all, wish you were here.
