Early morning skies on the way into Venice

As the final voyage of the Carnival Destiny* approached its destination—the ancient city of Venice—my husband got up early to take some photos from the deck of the ship.

Photos by Richard Schear, February, 2013


Yes, there was a sprinkling of snow in Venice, and much more than that on the Italian Alps in the distance. The snow didn't last long, but our visit in Venice was rather chillier than we had expected.

I went to Venice years ago, and it was colder than I expected too. Great pics!

I have been to Venice several times, but only in summer time. When it's absolutely heaving with tourists! Perhaps it's better in the winter?

I just love Venice. I was there once in December, when it snowed heavily - your photos are lovely. But it is very cold when cold! k .

Considering all of the trouble that Carnival cruises have been having lately, you-all really did have a great trip!
