Good morning...we have just sailed into Valletta Malta...what a beautiful sight in the early morning light.
Thank you for all your well wishes for my birthday on Saturday and especially to Kate and Patty for their dedicated birthday card uploads...they were wonderful. Also a big thank you to Maureen (HarrietH) for her UA ...so chuffed.
Signal is not always available or fast on the ship and I have battled to upload from my laptop. Seems easier to upload from my IPad...so this was snapped with my IPad as we came Into the harbour earlier this morning. Not good quality but wanted to connect with all of you on epz...
Once we are in Rome I will once again be able to view, vote and upload images...
Have a great week

So glad you could make contact with this lovely image of Malta - an island I've never been to.
Valletta looks beautiful - no doubt you'll have lots to show us once you get to Rome.
What a fantastic cruise.

A familiar sight Colleen, quite spectacular. I remember watching a huge oil tanker come into
the harbour when we were there. That did spoil the view...
