And so we have, the very last of my holiday pictures, and these are by far my favourites! It was both mine and my family’s first time cruising and we utterly enjoyed every minute of it. From the friendly staff to the three or four course dinners every night and the atmosphere in general, the smiles were endless. One of my favourite things was to wake up each morning in a new port and look out to the beautiful view of where we would be spending the day. Anyways our cruise was for 12 days with Holland America, and departed from Barcelona, Spain and then journeyed through the south of France, Italy, Greece, Croatia and Montenegro, before ending in Venice, Italy.
