Sorry to be a tease but when I have a bit more time (I'm at present using someone else's computer) but we had a very interesting experience on our recent ferry journey from Igoumenitsa to Venice.
To Be Continued!!

If it's the Anek Ferry that left Igoumenitsa on Friday morning then it was a 60 hour trip. How do I know. Some freinds of mine were on it.

No it was the Anek that left Igoumenitsa on Saturday 19th arrived Sunday 20th, our 36hour journey looks like small change compared to 60hours though.
It must be that time of year.
The Venice port authority refused permission to enter until visibility improved, we were just settling down for another overnight stay on board when low and behold the pilot came on board and we inched our way into the Grand Canal.
It usually takes something like 3/4hr. to pass down the canal, but this time we were so slow they had to use the side thrusters just to maintain the course we were so slow.
And as for dissembarking, it seemed to take for ever.
Then thick fog as far a Lake Como. Never mind off to France today for a couple of days, then home on Thursday night, no fog in the tunnel we hope.

Goodness, we were lucky only to be delayed for four hours then!
That area of Italy is notorious as the Po valley can be fogbound for months apparently-my husband and I once found ourselves in the centre of Milan without realising it, the fog was so thick until the very heart of the city!
