Quiltville Mediterranean Quilt cruise

After getting acclimatized in Barcelona for a few days with my travel partner, we met up with our group last night for a welcome dinner at our hotel. Today we met Bonnie and her hubby Dave as we were waiting for our bus to take us to the port. She is warm and friendly as she appears and I'm so very blessed to be on this Quiltville cruise. 

We arrived at the port early. We are all checked in and managed to get our shore excursions booked for Rome and Florence. That was our first stop on board after embarking. The remaining ports will be available on foot mostly.  We had lunch while we waited for our state room to be ready. We still haven't got our luggage but hopefully we will soon so we can empty those suitcases and settle in. 

Two twin beds mushed together European style. Hard mattresses but they will do!  Our porter Reuben said he will separate the beds into two twins while we are at dinner. We tried for a siesta but didn't fall asleep.  

Here is the rest of our room. Quite cozy with nooks and crannies for everything. 

We have dinner at 6:30 one floor up and after that Bonnie Hunter and Mary Ellen, our cruise director, will be hosting a welcome meeting. There are three Canadians on the trip, the two of us and one lady from Calgary. 

Tomorrow is our first class with Bonnie!!  Team Canada is ready to party!!

With love from Barcelona,
