Day 2 - Hvar (Croatia)

Had a lie-in until 7ish this morning!

We heard from Guest Relations that our luggage WASN'T found and put on the next plane to Milan. Bugger! This means we set sail without any luggage at all.

The Ship's 'Plan B' is to continue to search for the luggage at Milan and then have it sent to our next Port. They've already said that they won't send it to Croatia (even if they do find it), so the next opportunity will be Tuesday as we're out at sea on Monday.

We've realised that in addition to the massive inconvenience of no luggage, one of the suitcases contains all my big birthday pressys!

..so, if the bags DO turn up on Tuesday, it'll be timely, as it's my Birthday!

So, today we're off to 'Hvar' the 'sunniest island in the Adriatic' and hopefully it's the island that has some serious shops so we can begin to restock our toiletries.

Hvar was very pretty. Venetian-style architecture, narrow streets and a supermarket - Perfect, as it allowed us to stock-up on some of the missing toiletries. No 60Gb iPODs though!

Returned to the ship for a quick lunch and then off to the ship's cinema to see 'Syriana' starring George Clooney.

Then it was a snooze in the sun, afternoon tea and getting ready for the evening meal.

..a tough life!

All at sea tomorrow, so it's likely that they'll be no blog.
