Travel Blogs from Oristano
Our last sea day today has been spent with finalizing our excursions for our last few ports of call, competing in my last slot tournament at the casino (and no, yesterday's luck is just that...yesterday's luck), and the last jackpot bingo of the cruise...and no to that as well.

I have had better, for sure - guess I'm not really a fruit gelato kind of guy. Ran into the lady at the B&B - she asked me if I enjoyed Oristano.
