A Cruising We Shall Go…

19 Mar

Today is March 19th, 2013 and I am waiting to leave for Italy to start a 7month contract on the cruise ship MSC Lirica. Don’t worry it is not the cruise line Costa or Carnival, however there is a good chance the captain will be Italian.

The route does 11 day cruises from Genoa, Italy via Rome to Athens, Greece, on to the Ukraine, Turkey and back to Genoa. It changes course in June and misses the Ukraine returning to Turkey and adding Cyprus and Israel.

I will try my best to blog when I can but internet is not very reliable on the ship and rather expensive. But I hope you will be patient and enjoy the posts when I can.

As some of you know I initially applied because of a boy, but he broke my heart and instead of giving up, I figured I would continue the adventure on my own!

    Woohoo!! That’s AWESOME! I hope you have a fantastic time. What job will you be doing onboard? And was it hard to get the job? It’s something I’ve always thought about doing, but never actually made it happen. Go you! And bollocks to that dude. Plenty more fish – and fellas – in the sea – which is just where you’ll be from now on! :0)

    Even though your original plans for the cruise job didn’t work out, I applaud you for going forward with your dream. Will look forward to updates & photos!
