    Enjoy your cruise.

    Right now the Westerdam no longer has trays in the Lido for the buffet.

    Re: NEXT HAL CRUISE

    no problem.. I rarely eat in the buffet, other than breakfast.. because I only want a piece of toast to go with the cup of tea I made in the cabin; so sitting in the dining room for that is a waste :lol

    and I can not remember the last time I used a tray.. so I will not miss them.

    I guess they want you to eat less.. Carnival was doing that also in the past until
    enough people complain and the trays came back.

    We have looked at that schedule -- been to several of those ports.

    But with DH's health -- he can no longer take long flights.

    London is also one of our favorite cities. Before and even while we were cruising, we used to go and stay there for 10 - 15 days at a time.

    What a lovely trip..

    I LOVE Scotland! And Edinburgh is wonderful. The shops on Princess street.. the castle sat on the hill, the Royal Mile.. with Holyroodhouse at the bottom of it. Try to tour it if you have time. It is the Queens residence when she is up there. About Edinburgh Castle.. they now have the Stone of Scone there. It was the (destiny) stone upon what all the kings of Scotland were crowned. Until Edward removed it to Westminster Abby. But after an interesting history, with a few detours.. it is back where it belongs.. In Scotland.

    the kilted bagpipers that you will bump into here and there. The Edinburgh wool factory/store is there. I do not know if they still do this..but you used to be able to get into a taxi and ask to go to the Edinburgh wool factory/store, and when you got there and paid, you asked the driver for a receipt which you presented to them in the store and they reimbursed you. Now the ride back was on your own :lol

    Falmouth, So pretty.. you can hop on the trip boats, or get on the train that allows you to hop on and off.
    There is a Great maritime museum there that you may like, and Pendennis castle, . And if you can get to St. maws.. oops St. Mawes castle in Turo, then go for it.

    You will be in a foreign land.. Yes.. I know that you are already in England... but once you cross the Taymar Bridge.. then it is even more so.. :lol I lived not too far up the coast from here, in Devon, and the Cornish say that everything across the Tamar bridge is a foreign land :lol
    And Guernsey! what an amazing place. it is filled with natural beauty.

    You make me homesick
