Cruise Journal: Settling in on Royal Clipper

Nancy has been writing about her summer travels. Celebrating 46 years of marriage, she and her husband Joe left the city of brotherly love and landed in Venice, Italy, to begin their journey. She is sailing the Mediterranean aboard Royal Clipper, and was kind enough to share her experience with us. Below are some excerpts from her blog. For her whole story you can visit her personal blog Nancy Near Philadelphia.

On at least two occasions, passengers were offered the opportunity to climb the mast. Here goes Joe up once again!


I'm not much of a sailor myself, but I always enjoyed watching the folks who man the sails. There is a certain beauty in their work.


One day the passengers were offered the opportunity to go out in the tenders to photograph the ship under full sail. A group of the deck hands posed for this shot.


Breakfast and lunch were served buffet style, with a different theme for the lunch each day. In the morning there was an omelette station in addition to hot and cold offerings at the buffet. Lunch usually included a carving station. Sometimes the lunch buffet is served at the Tropical Bar on the main deck. Dinner was served beginning at about 7:30 in the evening. Around 7:00 we'd make our way to the Piano Bar where the menu, in three languages, would be posted.
