Emerald Princess - July 2019 - Post 1

I noticed that for some reason if you move through the pages using the ‘Older Posts’ arrow at the bottom of each page, page 4 (Corfu and Crete) and sometimes page 8 (Genoa) are skipped. It’s more reliable to use the Blog Archive links on the right hand side of the page.

A fabulous three weeks around the Mediterranean aboard Emerald Princess.

On 2nd. July I flew from Melbourne to Rome via Bangkok to join the ship in Civitavecchia. As always with Princess, the efficient, friendly and obliging F&B service was excellent and the food very good. The weather was very hot and sunny throughout. I joined the ship on 6th. July, disembarked back in Civitavecchia on the 27th and flew back home the next day.

Salerno and the Amalfi coast.

A tight squeeze into Salerno harbour.


Positano - very crowded.
