Mediterranean Cruise 2008

Claudia and I took our first ever cruise during the last week of October, 2008. We flew to Barcelona, Spain, and spent a couple days exploring Barcelona before boarding the Norwegian Gem for a 7 day cruise of the Western Mediterranean. Ours stops included Valletta, Malta; Naples, Rome, and Florence in Italy; Nice, France; then back to Barcelona. I took over 1200 images during the trip so it will take a while to sort through and process them. I expect this gallery will be under construction for a while. On the map below of the Western Mediterranean, I've roughly drawn the route of the ship during the cruise.
