We are on the Spirit in May next year which is still showing as terminating in Greenwich. Wonder why yours is showing as Tilbury?
Some of you might consider flying into London City Airport which is the right side of Town for Tilbury. There is one BA route to and from NYC which is a small business class only plane- 32 ish seats. It is a longer flight time but you breeze through the airport at this end. It's very civilised.
To be fair, I hadn't spotted there are 2 London cruises showing in 2018 for the Spirit and I think that's caused confusion. (At least for me it has!)
One starting from Lisbon and arriving on the 2 June (Your one Rosepark I guess) - which then starts from Greenwich to Copenhagen on 3rd June. Its this one I was looking to visit in Greenwich and thankfully its still showing as Greenwich.
The second is the one everyone is talking about Starting on the 10 September 2018 from Tilbury for the TA.
There is a third London Spirit visit in 2019, coming from Stockholm on 28 August 2019 to Tilbury arriving on the 7 Sept, then on to Barcelona on the 8th.
Unless the May 2018 visit is going to get shunted to Tilbury also, then the August / September visit can't be there because the Terminal in Greenwich isn't ready. (At least how it reads to me!) and this article in todays Daily Mail
suggests its opening on time in 2017.
So good news for Rosepark (hopefully) and a bit of a mystery for the TA why its starting from Tilbury. I had a look in whats in port to see if it might be another ship causing a displacement, but nothing is showing for Greenwich at all (And Enderby where the terminal is, isn't listed)
I think I'd be inclined to arrive on the water if I were sailing from Greenwich, using a Thames clipper from ctl London and taxi for the final km....... Hmmm I might just do that for arriving for Lunch too!
