With misgivings, we booked a 1 night taster on this venerable ship, for nostalgic reasons!
Decades ago, when she was under Gerry Herrods ownership, we enjoyed some adventurous cruises on her,; to Antarctica, up the amazon , etc, and loved her.
A convenient one nighter was available, from Newcastle, to us infinitely more accessible than Tilbury.
Pleasant cabin with3 large windows.. And a very sloping floor.. You have to almost climb uphill to go to bed! The bed was large and comfortable, but a shame there was no adequate room service for breakfast
A vibrant city full of character, grand buildings and much culture
