CRICKET was not exactly top of the agenda on APT’s “Magnificent Tour of Europe” river cruise from July 28 to August 11.
From a passenger list of 150, more than a hundred were Australians and their heroes were getting bashed unmercifully by the Poms at Trent Bridge and Edgbaston.
Another thirty were New Zealanders, who nodded in complete approval, and the rest the were British who knew when to keep relatively quiet.
Surprisingly spacious and well designed with exceptional facilities, good air conditioning and storage. Ours also had a French balcony which was very useful in a variety of conditions
Well worth the early start. Very informative, particularly on Nazi occupation
Not seen at it best with the ancient stone bridge under massive refurbishment
Didn't leave the ship
