Day 6: Piraeus (3)

image

With a boarding deadline of 4:30 p.m., it was time to return to Norwegian Jade.

To reach the ship, we walked through the Piraeus Cruise Terminal, where several dogs reside. A cleaning woman identified the dogs as Lisa, Rosamund, and Elias.

(Dogs have been a fixture in the terminal for quite a while. In 2002, the first time we visited Piraeus, we saw a dog in the terminal before boarding Silversea's Silver Whisper.)

No dogs awaited us when we reached Norwegian Jade's gangway, although the ship does carry passengers with service dogs from time to time.

The harbor was still busy, with car ferries, passenger hydrofoils, and smaller boats criss-crossing the central port area while Norwegian Jade awaited departure.

Shortly after 5 p.m., we were on our way.

Soon after we'd passed the breakwater, a pilot boat collected the harbor pilot and returned to shore.

Outside the harbor, we passed Highspeed Cosmote 6, a Hellenic Seaways catamaran. (The ferry, built in Australia, is bigger than it looks: It carries 941 passengers and crew plus 260 cars.)

A smaller Hellenic Seaways "Flying Dolphin" hydrofoil was already up on its wings and speeding toward the Greek Islands.

Piraeus and Athens lay behind us as we cruised toward the Tyrrhenian Sea and Rome's port of Civitavecchia.
