Still homeless and unemployed in London, Kyle and I got a last minute cruise deal abroad Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas as it toured the Mediterranean.
After a day and a half at sea enjoying the sun and the ship’s two swimming pools, gym and three spa pools we arrived in Venice early on a Wednesday afternoon. Sailing into Venice while eating lunch was one of my personal highlights of the trip.
I had been to Venice before, so after checking out St Marks Square I went shopping purchasing new GAS jeans and a (fake) Chanel hand bag.
Our final (and my favourite) stop was Split– a beautiful Croatian city built within the walls of a ruined castle. We only changed 10 Euro’s into the local currency, Kuna but with this bought two hours internet time, printed six documents, drank two coffees, and paid for us both to climb the bell tower for a picturesque view of the city below.
Cruising in Europe
Cruising is a great way to travel and Serenade of the Seas was a great ship to travel on. All food on board the ship was included and available 24 hours a day. On the days at sea I took advantage of the pools, mini golf, gym, day spa and activities going on. The staff were very very friendly as were our fellow passengers from around the globe.
