Anchors Away! Sailing to the Holy Land on Celebrity Silhouette
The aqua green colour of the Mediterranean off the shores of Civitiavecchia is incredibly enticing. In fact everything about sailing is captivating as far as I am concerned. I was up before 6:00am to get ready for my flight to Rome before boarding the wonderful Celebrity Silhouette. I have wanted to sail on a Celebrity ship for a long time and it is great to be on the 2,886 passenger Celebrity Silhouette on this visit to Egypt, Santorini and the Holy Land. I was able to view Silhouette last summer in Hamburg when she was freshly ‘hatched’ and just delivered from the shipyard. Of course, a 12 day cruise will give me the opportunity to experience everything on board and get a real feel for this ship. My birthday is tomorrow and we will be at sea. So, I think the perfect time to book a spa treatment. I have opted for the blissful sounding Absolute Spa Ritual which includes an Elemis Quartz Collagen Facial as well as a full body massage. Is there a better way to celebrate officially passing into senior’hood’? As I will have passed 55 years old, I must officially be a senior now. Actually, I don’t think it counts until I get my Freedom Pass to use on the London Underground and buses. I am off to have an early dinner having skipped lunch and am looking forward to tonight’s entertainment. I will tell all about the spa treatment tomorrow. Ahoy mateys and landlubbers, scurvey bilge rats and such…its off to sea, we go!
