I missed seeing her last year.
A six star luxury cruise ship
Regent Seven Seas Cruises ship, 'Seven Seas Navigator' at the Port of Tyne 20th June 2019.
She is on a 11 day Southampton to Dublin 'Round Britain' cruise.
The cheapest fare (and still very luxurious) for the 11 nights is £ 5789 per person.

Having enjoyed a lovely day at the invitation of Holland America Cruise Line on board their newest ship, Nieuw Statendam, here is photographs of her leaving the River Tyne bound for South Queensferry.

Not for me I’m afraid. Doesn’t appeal to me at all. Too many passengers and too much entertainment. Having said that we are cruising along the coast of Croatia next month. Only 34 passengers.


Much prefer the Liners of old.

Not for me either, I got sick on Finsbury Park lake (when they had one).

We only go on ships carrying 1800-2200 passengers. Also adults only.

I'm a miserable devil. :twisted:
