For the first time this trip we did not have to be up before dawn - our tour did not leave until noon - it really felt like were on vacation! After getting up when I felt like it, which was nine in morning, I had breafast in the open air on the back of the ship and watched the nearby tankers in the blue Mediteranean. After that I rejoined the rest of the family for some swimming. As we were in the pool, the beautiful harbor of Malta passed by the windows as we watched through the glass walls of the pool area. A nice lunch and off we went. A great morning.
