John arranged a taxi to pick us up from the house at 3:30 which gave us plenty of time to get to the Port of Piraeaus. The taxi was early and was the best taxi we used during our time in Athens and we arrived at the port about 3:45 and went through a customs check in and boarded Sea Cloud. There was a procedure for checking us in involving photo IDs and the taking of our passports; we were escorted on board by our own man to our room, 301 and shown all of the facilities and told that at promptly 5:00 there would be a mandatory safety instruction class. Ken and Bobbi found us and we compared cabins and then attended the class which was helpful. Dinner was very nice and we sat with 3 other couples, 2 from Guatemala, Morley and Judy (she from San Francisco and he from New York), and a couple from N Carolina. Very enjoyable evening discussing life and where everyone was from. Sometime later I met Ken in the outdoor bar and we started in on some single malt whiskey and we talked for 2 hours and the highlight was the full moon
