Piraeus is really Athens. It is the port town, but only 10 min away. Unfortunately, for me, its a change cruise day - meaning a 12hr day and no onshore time.
Just to make the day a little longer, I woke up early (the Ritchie curse), put on the clown suit, and went to my favourite spot - The Observation Lounge on the 12th deck. From there I watched us maneuver into port watching from the huge window, outside on the deck, and the simulated radar with the display of data. So many ships, so close together.
The new cruise is a charter. It will be interesting to see what happens as the group (almost 700 guests) are in the Computer/software industry from all over the world. I think it will either be heaven or hell - not sure which yet. On first glance, the guests look a lot younger. I hope thats a good thing :-)
