Naples to Palermo
Wednesday October 4th 2006
We had a bit of trouble finding the ingresso to the ship. You think a huge ship w/hundreds of people and cars would be easy to find. We eventually reached the ship. I thought we were in the wrong area as the workers were driving trucks and trailers on to the ship. But an employee checked our documents and told us to walk past the tractor trailers to find the elevator. There was a tour getting off a bus so we figured we had better beat the crowd. It was like playing chicken w/the trucks, then we had to wait for a few to be tied down and we eventually did find an elevator (that did not work) and a set of stairs. Climbing the stairs I was surprised how nice the ship was inside. It had everything from a bar/dance club to a movie theater and several restaurants.
We found our spot which was in a large room w/seats that reclined. We ditched our bags and strolled the ship. We stopped at the cafeteria for dinner, then off to the movie theater. They played an American film that I had never heard of before. I was hoping for at least English subtitles, but no such luck. It was a lame movie, but it killed two hours. We hit the sack, but after an hour I hit the floor and used the pack as a pillow and was much more comfortable.
