Smiler if you go around the corner and open the brown door - you will find the lift.
We do try to think of everything for our customers. But if you have any ideas as to how the Cafe can be better then just let me know.

VIRTUAL HOLIDAY - how about a Cruise?

Med cruise where we can get some heat and of course the Purple Pills will be available to take our FB away for the week.

Sign if you would like to come - it starts at the weekend - just getting the details sorted just now, phone is red hot, using all the contacts i know to try and get a good deal - we can maybe get this trip for free!!
And Gill for goodness sake will you get all these nasty little penguins out of the cafe, hit them harder as the health and safety man will crack up if he comes in and sees all these little things running about - god i nearly fell over one there.
Penguines GO!!!!!!

Right ama away to phone him who has the V..gin Cruises and go down on bended knee and beg for help.

Will be on later but just sign in if you want to come on the cruise!!!!

Hi, cant wait till we sail, and the food on cruise ships is on 24 hour a day service, lucky for us its a virtual holiday and no weight will be gained from eating cream cakes at three in the morning when the night club closes.
Princess could you please ask the captain if we can stop at Sicily, apart from the lovely sight of those hunky italian stallions :nono: there is a clock tower in the village square, it is a sight to behold when it strikes 12 noon, watch the clip at 6.20 mins in. I would love to see it again :clap: :clap:

Looking out he swimsuits and sarongs later, remember folks to take clothes for a fancy dress night, best outfit wins dinner at the captains table.
Ooooohhhh I am so excited I could crush a grape :lol:

Hi drapesy, you can join in al the activities if you want, as those purple pills are magic, they take away all the pain we have so we are "normal" while on our jollies.
Looking forward to seeing you all there

Western Med Cruises :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave:

Western Med cruises offers the finest selection of arts, culture, history, surf and sand, making it the perfect destination for a family or romantic cruise.

Given the size of the Mediterranean, cruises within the western half feature more ports than many other cruises, typically calling in at Spain, Portugal, Italy, Monaco, Malta, Croatia, and Morocco.
Spain

The cultural diversity of the countries within the western Mediterranean which cruise ships stop off at make it a most intriguing and enlightening experience.

The cosmopolitan city of Barcelona is the most common stop in Spain, with tours taking in the Gothic Quarter, Gaudi's Sagrada Familia Church and several other urban vistas.

Monte Carlo is another of the most popular stops on a cruise of the western Mediterranean, where passengers can enjoy the casinos, gambling, glamour and simply soak up the atmosphere of casual wealth.

Several Italian cities are usually included on Mediterranean cruises, including Venice, Naples, Florence and 'The Eternal City', Rome. Filled with history, art, culture and fantastic evening entertainments, for many people the cities of Italy represent the highlight of the trip.
Mediterranean

Malta and Croatia are also popular with passengers, particularly Dubrovnik for its sunny and welcoming ambience.

However, the Islamic culture of Morocco offers a dramatically different holiday experience from the rest of the Mediterranean. Take a stroll through the spice markets of Marrakech, or see the awe-inspiring Koutoubia Mosque, towering above the labyrinthine city streets.

Taking in some of the most captivating locations in the world, a cruise of the western Mediterranean can be one of the most romantic experiences of a lifetime, while with so many stops, even the most restless child is unlikely to get bored. :lol: :lol:

ok folks, we will be getting picked up on sunday, after breakfast for our first trip ashore, saturday will be spent finding your way around the ship and getting to know the crew and other passengers :D
The port we will dock in is called Civitavecchia, this is for trips to Rome
WE will pass The spanish steps
The Spanish Steps (Italian: Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti) are a set of steps in Rome, Italy, climbing a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinità dei Monti, dominated by the church of Trinità dei Monti. The Scalinata is the longest and widest staircase in Europe.[1]

The monumental stairway of 138 steps was built with French diplomat Étienne Gueffier’s bequeathed funds of 20,000 scudi, in 1723–1725, linking the Bourbon Spanish Embassy to the Holy See, today still located in Palazzo Monaldeschi in the piazza below, with the Trinità dei Monti above.



We wil then go on to the Trevi Fountain, where legend has it that if you stand with your back to it and throw a coin over your shoulder, then this ensures you will return to Rome.
The Trevi Fountain (Italian: Fontana di Trevi) is a fountain in the Trevi rione in Rome, Italy. Standing 25.9 meters (85 feet) high and 19.8 meters (65 feet) wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city


We will then stop for lunch at an authentic Italian restaurant, dont worry if you dont like pasta, the chef will cook to order.
We will then be taken to the worlds smallest country, The Vatican, which is truly a sight to behold and an experience never forgotten , do not worry if you are not of a religious nature or of another faith, all are welcome, and it is worth seeing.

we will then head back to the ship for tea, and to spend the evening at any of the entertainment venues you wish.

See you all on saturday at the port.

Anne :hugs: :hugs: :grouphug:

PS I have typed this post out four times now and lost it into cyber space :crazy: :crazy:
