SOVEREIGN 24th September 2016 (part 4)
Monday 26th September 2016
We arrived at the port of Olbia at 8 a.m. and well before that I was on deck enjoying seeing the other ships coming and going. I had been here only a couple of weeks ago but it was still fun to enjoy this port, and this time I was on board SOVEREIGN rather than watching her come in to Olbia!
Several of us walked around the port to photograph the ships, and then into town to enjoy a walking tour of our own.
We returned to the ship by a shuttle bus, ready for lunch and a restful afternoon before sailing late afternoon.
Tonight is scheduled to be a Black & White Night, with many passengers prepared for that; we enjoyed drinks, dinner and conversation.
Ships seen: Cruise Smeralda (Grimaldi), Athara (Tirrenia), Cruise Olbia (Grimaldi) previously the Bimini Superfast registered in Panama, Moby Aki, Luigi P.A. (Moby Cargo), Pietro Manunta (Moby Cargo), Caterina (the harbour ropes man), Sea Cloud II, Mega Express Three (Corsica Ferries/Sardinia Ferries), Moby Otta
