Sea Diamond to Mykonos

We boarded our ship the Sea Diamond this morning and we were greeted by a new tour guide whose level of fake intensity really got to me as I am running out of steam. She wanted us to all call her mum. No way.

The ship is pretty big and the cabin is alright. The food is absolutely brilliant. 5 courses for lunch and if you like you can have all three mains. Tempting though it is I have been good and only had the five courses. Yes, I did forget the sea sickness tablets so lets hope I do not get to review the meal again.

You could buy an unlimited drinks package for 18 euro per person per day for the three days and some of the couples on our tour decided that was better value than going to Ephesus. We got on the boat by about 11 am and they were refused service by 11.30 am. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie.......

The trip to Mykonos took about 6 hours and our Captain Speedy Gonzales got us there about an hour early. We have all seen the pictures of the white washed walls and the windmills but it is just gorgeous. The wind was up so we did not have seafood in little Venice by the sea but the free meal on the boat was also a more sensible option.

I got the photo of the trip here. The Island has 4 pet pelicans who are huge and pink. They are also friendly. Got a wonderful shot of the pelican in front of once of the beautiful churches.

Jane got some nice earrings and we returned to the ship so I could see the cabaret show. It was a "Journey around the World" it was so daggy it was awesome. Food was fantastic at the buffet and I liberated some nectarines for our visit to Lindos and Rhodes tomorrow.

Hi Daniel and Jane!! Cheryl from Wollongong here.....sounds like we may have had the same guide as our guide for our Grand European TT also wanted us to call her 'mother'. Her name was Vivienne so....if it is her, you will have to ask her if she remembers John, Elyssa and I! She was actually very good...the two female guides I have had on my tours were much better than the two men as they gave everything to make sure we had a good time.
Glad to see you are having such a good time. Enjoying reading your blogs!
