Here is my cruise report...

In bed before midnight every night! It was too windy to land by tender at St. Peter Port on Guernsey. The high point (literally) was the flight to Inis Mor, one of the Aran Islands. The Giant's Causeway was impressive but I missed the coast road and the Antrim Glens on the way back when I had to take a lady from Sway in Hampshire to Coleraine hospital. Our 70 taxi got us back to the ship just on sailing time at 6pm!
