It made more sense to me to post it here since this will be approximately 95% about the ports and only 5% about the cruise.[emoji846]

Our cabin was C429, a mid-ship mini suite with an extended balcony. This wasn’t the first cabin I chose for this cruise, or even the second, third, or fourth! I originally booked a deluxe balcony,...

The main section of Salisbury Cathedral was built between 1220 and 1258, with the cloisters, chapter house, and spire added later. The flying buttresses were added some years after the spire to...

Everybody goes to Stonehenge, but from my perspective virtually nobody visits Salisbury, and I’m not sure why. The village is charming, the cathedral is stunning, and then there’s the Magna...

I’ve been working on my blog/review of our BI cruise last month, and posting it on the Princess board. I realized that on a port-intensive itinerary like the British Isles it’s all about the ports,...
