Day 3 was Mahon, and was a good port. Lots of interesting nooks and crannies in the town. It is a bit of a walk up a winding walkway or climbing lots of stairs to get up from the dock, so be prepared. There was supposedly a city shuttle available, but we didn't see it.
The journey into Alghero, Sardinia, Italy was really a rock and roll affair. Lots of swells in the Med. We even had to go around to an inlet to drop anchor because it would be too tricky to tender onto the normal pier at the head of old town. We enjoyed our looking around. Another fascinating city with something different down every side street. Genuine Sardinian pizza is something scrumptious, too. Had that for lunch. There was a bit of a delay with some folks getting back onto the ship, as one tender had to be towed back to the ship. Seems some rope got wrapped around one of the props. Nothing dangerous ... they just couldn't maneuver like they needed to in getting pax back to the ship.
Tonight is informal night, and tomorrow is Civitavecchia/Rome. We're really looking forward to it.
