Luxurious barge with spacious accommodations for 8. Every detail is handled. The cruise begins with high tea at the Stafford Hotel in London before transfer to the barge.
The Magna Carta is beautiful, meticulously clean and very comfortable. Our cabin and bathroom were large and nicely appointed. The staff was lovely and anticipated our every need. Our tour guide was very well informed taking us to Oxford, Highclere (Downton Abbey), Cliveden, Windsor and Hampton Court.
One of the many highlights was sitting on the sun deck cruising through the locks with a Guinness or cup of tea enjoying conversations while passing lovely countryside.
We were served 3 gourmet meals a day accompanied by exquisite wines. A full bar was also available.
We took the Queen Mary 2 from New York to meet the Magna Carta in London. The food and service on the Magna Carta far exceeded Cunard’s.
It was a wonderful week on the Thames.
