Made it to London!  Upgraded to World Traveler plus on British Air.  It was nice to have a recliner and foot rest. Started with one of their signature cocktails, a Gin Fizz.  Excellent choices for movies and the meal wasn’t too bad.  

Today, we have tea scheduled and a trip to Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio.  I’m sure we will be exhausted!!  

Cheers!

To help stay awake, we took a stroll to Buckingham Palace.  Waiting to check in and go to tea time.

We had a lovely tea time at our hotel, St Ermin’s then a car picked us up to go to the Harry Potter Studio tour.  Fantastic tour!!!  I’ll post more on the blog about that!   Excited for another day in London!

Just walked to Westminster Abbey and toured it. Saw the Queen’s Jubilee exhibit. Then walked to Parliament, 10 Downing Street and through parks to the Princess Diana Memorial Walk to Kensington Palace.  19k steps!  Now at a pub for lunch!!

Train ride very easy and quick taxi to port.  Arrived at 11:00am. Check-in was very quick and seats available for Platinum and higher.  We were given group five but right after Haven guests boarded, platinum and higher could board.  We were on board at 11:35.  We had lunch at noon in the main dining room and are now enjoying a drink at the Bier Garten.

Hi! Great review and pictures so far! We'll be on the Spirit in 3 1/2 weeks' time and cannot wait.

 

Can you please tell us who is the CD - hopefully it's Pedro. And also, can you see if Aan, head mixologist is on board?

 

Keep it up with your review and pictures, and enjoy the cruise. Spirit is a lovely ship!

It’s a female cruise director and I missed her name but I’ll get it. I’ll ask about Aan tonight.

😁 our favourite!

 

It will be our 4th time with him. Twice on the Jade and once on Spirit - last year April for my 60th. I passed my cake over to Aan to cut it up and pass around the slices. He made those martinis for us.
