Day 5: Cruising from Chioggia to Venice

Shortly after an early sunset, First Captain Richard Martin took the helm as River Countess left Chioggia for Venice.

Our ship moved swiftly into the Venetian Lagoon, leaving Chioggia's waterfront and fishing huts behind as it followed the navigation channel's bricole markers to Venice.

At dinner in the ship's restaurant, Cheryl was surprised with a birthday cake.

Later, after River Countess had docked at the Santa Marta pier in Venice, Maria's Live Band came on board to perform a show titled "I Canti della Laguna" in the Castillo Lounge.

The singer, Maria Dal Rovere, is a first-rate artist (see video clips of her performances in Italy and New York), and the jazz pianist who accompanied her was amazing.

We wrapped up our long day with a late-night walk to the Santa Marta vaporetto stop, which was a short distance along the road outside the pier gates.
