30th Sept We had a great day today. We met up with Maike and her family in Koblenz. This was very kind of them, as it was theoretically only an hour away for us, but 3 hours for them. We had a lovely day, with a cable car ride, visiting the enormous fortress on the […]

Transit to Germany and Enkirch 29th Sept Yesterday was not a lot of fun. Most things worked perfectly – we got up at 5am for breakfast at 5:45, and then headed out of the ship, expecting there to be a huge wait on taxis for so many passengers. We were delighted to be able to […]

Hi all. When I first wrote my blog I had decided that I would write my blog every two days so that there would be more action in the blog for people to read. But again I have been forced to write. I am starting to think it is a capital crime for a mother […]

Day 1 in Germany Hi everyone, Today we woke up after half an hour’s rest. I say that because some genius thought it would be a good idea to land in Paris, instead of Frankfurt, hire a car, and drive 8 and a 1/2 hours to our destination, Enkirch, along the stunning Mosel river. Today […]

Sept 27th It was another sea day today. Tim and I felt justifiably righteous after spending some time at the gym, and then it was straight on to breakfast. Our day included food, visiting the library, a game of mini golf, a table tennis tournament with others on the boat, the ropes course (which included […]

26th Sept Our last port was Stokholm, and we decided to do another SPB tour to see the city as, being such an enormous ship, we needed to dock 45 mins away from the centre of town. There are many positives with cruising, but one negative is that it costs quite a bit to do […]
