... the air to take silly pictures. Of course, we did the exact same thing. After about 30 minutes of trying to get the perfect shot it was starting to drizzle so we looked at the other two buildings in the piazza which had entrance fees so we didn't do in. One was the Pisa Cathedral and the other was St. John's Baptistry. We were glad we went back for the once in a lifetime ...

We woke at 06:00 and lined up with the other zillion cars and trucks waiting to enter the bowels of this huge ship. We started boarded at 7:15 and were in our cabins at 7:45.
