Cabin: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Being from Florida, DH and I prefer cruises that go somewhere cool and this itinerary really fit the bill. We were really looking forward to escaping the summer heat and to make a long story short, this cruise was absolutely wonderful. The ship is just the right size for us and was well maintained and the staff was friendly and attentive.

Now for the details.

The cruise sailed from Harwich, England, and I have to say the port was very nice, well organized, and we had no problems with it. A warning for anybody unfamiliar with that port, though, is it's located on the other side of London from Heathrow (and I think from Gatwick too, although I'm not sure) and it's a couple hours drive to get there. I probably would try to avoid sailing from that port again, just because of the time and expense of getting to it from the airport. But if it was the perfect itinerary then I probably would do it anyway.

The waterfront area is nice with quaint houses and shops. Stayed at The Tower Hotel and it was lovely.
