(BTW... did you get an enormous discount? I ask because the cruise costs a lot more than £2000! :lol: )


As you know, Dave, my 'ceiling' is usually £2,000 for a basic inside cabin on a long-haul cruise with flights and any pre- and post-stays included. This particular offer came along to include the aforementioned but in an Outside cabin and with an All-Inclusive Drinks Package for....... £2299 - so I 'pushed the boat out'. Do you think it's a bargain? :D

Thanks Marie, (but no doubt there is the odd (!) person who, in their usual schadenfreude manner, would take issue with that!) :lol:

What a fantastic itinerary Gill! I have a real soft spot for Boudicca though recently she has been based in Dover which is not very accessible for us. Have a GREAT cruise!
