Hello once again from the Sojourn here in Civitavecchia, Italy!
I just flew in this morning into Fumicino and decided to do the "el chepo" transfer of train from Fumicino to Civitavvechi which took all of 1 hour for 11.80 euro with one person with a checked bag and one carry-on it is very doable and easy as well and no hassle. I left Fumicino at 11:45am and I was at the ships pier at 1:15pm after walking from the train station to the shuttle bus area and didn't have to wait.
I was onboard by 1:30pm and was quickly up to the Colonnade whereby there was a FULL ON ATTACK going on. Word has obviously gotten out that Seabourn starts embarkation now at 12:30pm. I had a nice spagetti a la Cassalinga with Pancetta, Capers and fresh arugual with some Petit Chablis and Peligrinno water. A quick look at the dessert bar and I had to have the Chocalte Torte with Chocolate Ice Cream...now I am stuffed.
I'll be having one of Kevin's great coffee's here in Seabourn Square and then head out to my Suite and unpack. I was very fortunate to be upgradec from a CAT V1 on a GTY on both sailings and received the same midship cabin assignment for both cruises in a CAT V6.
Will be posting later all the Activities onboard tonight and the menus as well for those diehards that just have to know.
The weather in Civitavecchia is stunningly beautiful with sunny skies and current 24C temperature. We sail at 5:00pm for Porto Venere, Italy.
More to come from the Sojourn about to set sail in 2.5 hours time from Civitavecchia.
