This morning we awoke with tremendous excitement over our imminent arrival in Venice or Venezia! After a light breakfast at the ship's cafe, Angie and I played nine holes of mini golf on the top deck. I beat her handily. Then we mapped out our Venice exploration over a wonderful lunch in the ship's brasserie. We were able to take excellent photos of the excellent vistas as we arrived in port. Then we rushed to the gangway ...

I totally sound unromantic and grumpy but I adored Amsterdam with its canals and lack of mega tourism, at least in the spot we were in. Dave and I both agreed that as lovely as it was, 3-4 days here was enough for the two of us.
