|Where in the world? After a day at sea on board the Celebrity Eclipse we arrived at this place. I was just in the mood to 'Spend Spend Spend' like Viv Nicholson. Imagine my disappointment to find all the shops were shut due to a public holiday. We weren't told about this, otherwise I would have booked a shore excursion, though after visiting Rome a few years ago I never want to be guided around another monument as long as I live. I don't want to be told how many bricks it took to make the frigging thing. We had a walk around the deserted town centre and had a café con leche in a betting shop, and as we were walking back to the ship my maid of all work Carmen found a Pikante and joy of joys, it was open. A clue to the whereabouts of this place is in the link.|
Our cabin steward was called Jon from the Philippines, he asked us if we would like our beds pushing together. I don't bleeding think so! Cruise tip: Don't whatever you do, greet the cabin staff of foreign extraction with a cheery 'Hello, how are you?' Otherwise, they will tell you in a long drawn out, boring account of their dreary lives back home. 'How are you?' is a salutation, a rhetorical question, not an open invitation for them to bleat on and on and on. Nip it in the bud and learn not to use it.

|No Carmen, it's not that sort of sling!|
