Sunday 22nd May - Suez Canal

Just a quick post to let you all know we are well and have been having a fantastic time. We have loved visiting all the recent ports and have wonderful experiences to share with you. Petra, Jordan and Luxor, Egypt were absolutely amazing. Internet access has been troublesome, particularly with our larger posts with lots of pictures. It is very, very slooooooooow and expensive (pay by the minute) so has been a bit frustrating. There might be a flurry of posts when we hit dry land in Italy.
About 4 hours ago we commenced our journey through the Suez Canal. I'm (Kieran) going to be in big trouble from Anisa for posting something out of order but here's a sneek peek.

This is a photograph of our television screen where one of the chanels always displays our current location. We are the little boat icon just above Suez.

These are the ships getting ready to convoy through the canal just before dawn.

This is the entrance to the canal. We are the first ship in the convoy which is why you can't see anyone in front of us.

Looking back just after we enter the canal.

The convoy behind us.
