This site contains over 400 photos that we took on our recent
European vacation and Mediterranean Cruise onboard the Holland-America line's
M.S. Rotterdam. We spent a few days in Greece before the cruise and a
few days after in Italy. These web pages are pretty much in the same
order as the route we took.
The Rotterdam (and most cruises) stopped in each country
for only a day. In most ports we had 2 or 3 bus tours to choose from.
Most were full day tours which left early and returned at dinner time. We did have a couple of days at sea;
however, we were too tired to see most of the entertainment on the ship.
We took over 2000 photos, using both a digital and a
point & shoot type camera. We had a 64 mg. memory chip for the
digital camera, which allowed us to take up to 200 photos a day. These
were uploaded onto a laptop computer each night and named while
our memory was fresh. We took 32 rolls of film with the other
camera. I personally had 'sensory overload' from seeing so
much. This makes it more difficult to remember which ruin or statue was
