The internet lounge on the ship. The first ship to have this NECESSARY service. However, most of the ports we visited had internet cafes that had slow, but adequate, services which were very popular with the passengers who were all writing their relatives back in the States about the progress of the trip.  The "older" passengers used these facilities as much, if not more, than the younger.

Mallorca which is next to Menorca.  We had lunch at the restaurant on the small island in the bay.  We also ate here when we last visited Mallorca about 30 years ago.  There are more hotels in the area but not much else has changes.

Our Ship.  600 passengers 30,000 tons.  Not large by current standards.  Our ship on our last Caribbean trip had 2,000 passengers and was 80,000 tons.

The Olive Market in Casablanca.  The smell was very appetizing especially because I like olives so much.

An incredibly large Mosque in Casablanca. One of the most fascinating places I have ever seen. This picture does no do it justice.  The marble was beautiful

Entrance to the Mosque

Ceiling in the Mosque that is a few hundred feet long. It opens up by motor to reveal the sky. They only open it on Fridays, their Holy Day.
